- Wedding: May 2012
Woo Hoo! Completely finshed one whole project. I love skeleton keys, so I knew I wanted to incorporate them in our wedding. I would have loved to use authentic vintage ones but they can get pricey and hard to find, so I found two great sellers on ETSY who had a large variety of sizes, designs, and colors (I only needed silver though) for great prices (less than $1 each). Then all I did was use my Slice (which promptly died as I was cutting out the last “extra”) to cut out the cardstock (aleady owned) tags and used some pretty satin ribbon ($3) to tie the key to the tag. To hold them in place I decided to use a large cork board ( $8 with 40% coupon at AC Moore) and paint the frame a shade of blue ($1) we are using in the wedding. I then covered the cork part with a pretty creme wrapping paper ($5) and used some remaining ribbon to go around the edge to make it look more finished. To hold the tags on I used long push pins ($3) that have little pearls on the end and just looped the tag on it. It will be on an easel at the reception.
I don’t know why my pics are sideways. It is supposed to be standing on its short end, but you get the idea. TIP: If your doing this ahead I would suggest to wait to write the table numbers, because someone will want to change your seating arrangements at least once.
