Mixed Media Wedding Season Opener with Art-C
Hello, Gorgeouses! Laurel Lee Pollard here, White Collar Crafter, with an excellent project to launch us past the Holiday Season.
According to TheKnot.com, 39% of hopeful grooms-to-be pop the question during the Holidays, between the months of December and February. This immediately creates an excited bride-to-be, ready to prepare her dream wedding event.
One of these lovely new brides-to-be is a friend of mine. She has inspired me to share a project that will be perfect for a bridal party Cre8time event for her and her bridesmaids: “Save the Date” cards.
I am featuring a fantastic collection from a *new* brand to the market, Art-C. Specializing in mixed-media provisions, their adorable mini bottles and fillers were just what I was looking for.
To begin, use Martha Stewart Crafts “Heartbeat All Over the Page” craft punch to create mini-confetti with two colors of your choice of card stock:
Next, prepare your supplies:
Art-C Mini Bottle and Cork Stopper
Art-C Mini Tag
Art-C Mini Stamp
Art-C Heart Bottle Filler
Art-C Beaded Bottle Filler
Art-C Heart Bottle Filler
Imagine Crafts Memento Ink
ScraPerfect “The Best Glue Ever”
E6000 Quick Hold Adhesive
AdTech Hot Glue and Glue Gun
Small paint brush
“Save the Date”placard
Fill bottle by removing cork from Art-C Mini Bottle and pushing in Art-C Beaded Bottle Filler:
Pinch Art-C Heart Bottle Filler and drop into Mini Bottle:
Pinch heart confetti and push into Mini Bottle:
Some of the large confetti may become lodged at the top. Use the handle of a small paintbrush to dislodge:
Dab a small amount of hot glue on the cork stopper using AdTech Hot Glue Gun and insert cork to mouth of Mini Bottle:
Use Art-C Mini Stamp with Imagine Crafts Memento Ink to apply arrow image to Art-C Mini Tag:
Tie on baker’s twine around neck of Mini-Bottle, adding a dot of ScraPerfect’s “Best Glue Ever”:
Slide prepared Mini Tag onto tail of baker’s twine:
Tie baker’s twine into a bow:
Apply a small amount E6000 QuickHOLD adhesive to the back of the Mini Bottle and press onto “Save the Date”placard:
Finish by mounting the “Save the Date”placard to card:
I encourage you to contact your Independent Retailer about hosting a Cre8time event for you and your bridesmaids. It’s a wonderful way to share in your excitement of your upcoming nuptials and make life-long memories with those that are closest to you.
Art-C makes it’s world debut at the upcoming Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show, being held in Anaheim, California, January 9 - 13. I encourage you to follow them on social media to see the full spectrum of amazing products they are launching! If you’re lucky enough to be in attendance at this industry trade show, look for this logo, and tell them, “Laurel Lee sent me!”
