DIY Update

July 2, 2010

Today is a quick update on the plethora of projects I have going on.  The paper flowers for the wedding are going quite well.  More than half done!

Paper Flowers

Boring Ass Life Roses

My attempt to improve the bouquet I had intended for future Etsy sale was a failure.  I learned a lot about how to construct a sturdy and full bouquet, though.  Next time!

The King Lear Bouquet was indeed a tragedy.

The decoupage boxes, on the other hand seem to be going quite well!

Black Cat/Spiderman Oval Box

I know… Mary Jane would be more wedding appropriate, but I don’t have a huge stack of comics to upcycle, here.  And comics tend to favor the fighting over the kissing.  But I did win the ebay bid for a lot of Green Arrow Black Canary books!

Spiderman/Black Cat on Heart Shaped Paper Mache Box

I’m trying not to put Heart Shaped Box lyrics in here.  Trying really, really hard.

Wonder Man/Enchantress Hearth Shaped Box

Wonder Man.  I know.  Like I said, I don’t have a lot to work with.  At least I found some comics with smooching in them.

All three boxes with covers.

Last DIY update: we found some great little vases at the Salvation Army yesterday.  I’ve painted them.  I enjoy them.

Lastly, I leave you with a link I found to more varied nerdy wedding favors.  I adore the Scrabble Magnets!
