With this Ring...

I thee wed!

How many of you have heard those words?

How many of you have watch the ring bearer untie the rings and pass those to the groom?

Today we're filled with love! How can you not be when you see these unique and beautiful projects made with Crate Paper's Portrait collection and all "tied" together with GlueArts adhesives?!

Designer Linda Albrecht has made the perfect solution for not only storing all those special wedding cards {that hopefully were handmade and inspired this week} but also a permanent provides a special keepsake for cards and more! We LOVED this!

Designer Andrea Budjack shows you one of the most beautiful ring bearer's pillow we have seen and better yet...it's inexpensive to make and so special to display and keep! {We know you'll be making this one!!}

1. Start by applying patterned papers to desired areas on the box using Perma Tac Adhesive in the Glue Glider Max.

2. Lightly sand chipboard letters then apply Perma Tac Adhesive from the Glue Glider Pro to the front surface of each letter.

3. Shake glitter onto each chipboard letter then press into adhesive with your finger and shake off excess glitter.
 4. Crumple and twist up white grosgrain ribbon then use hot glue to adhere the glittered letters to it. Adhere it to the box as desired with hot glue also.

5. To make the large flower, cut 6 circles by hand. Cut the largest at 4" round then cut the next 3 circles 1/4" smaller in circumference than the preverious one. Cut the last 2 the same size for the center. Cut a slit into each circle that stops at the center.
6. Slightly overlap one side of the slit onto the other so that a small cup shape is formed. Use hot glue to adhere into place
 7. Lightly sand the outside edges of each circle then mist lightly with water and crumple in your hand to create a distressed paper look.
8. Use your fingers to mold shape into the outer edges of each circle then use hot glue to stack them on top of each other with the largest circle being at the bottom. Position the last two smallest circles so that they are slightly off center of each other. Punch a hole in the center of the flower.
9. Insert the pearl stamins into the center hole on the flower then use hot glue on the backside to keep in place.

10. Adhere tuelle and feathers to the backside of the flower then adhere to the front of the box as desired.
