A lot of you may or may not know, but for the past five years I have been the managing editor at the wedding blog Snippet & Ink! The last few years I’ve headed some amazing projects including art directing advertorial collaborations with big brands (sometimes shooting them!), creating original content (that was picked up by a magazine!) and super fun DIY Projects! There's so much work that goes into each and every project, from conception to art direction, shooting then blogging and then featuring on social media outlets, and I realized I never actually shared them on my own site...until now! I’m forever grateful for all the amazing wedding friends that helped make some of my crazy ideas come to life, and excited to share more with you! For now I'll start with my favorite—the DIY Floral Envelope Liners!
I really wanted to find an easy way to spruce up wedding invitations! For my own wedding I sourced a custom paper from a local art store, but for this project I needed to find something that was affordable and accessible. Inspired by vintage botanical sketches—I scoured the internet on sites like Graphics Fairy, Vector Stock, Clip Art, etc., looking for the perfect art work, but came up short until Heather from Adelphi Events found a book on Amazon that had 45 "ready to frame" botanical prints that could be ripped out of the book—brilliant! The book... only $15! So we purchased an envelope liner kit, traced the prints, cut them out, and glued them inside the envelopes! Super proud of this beautiful, and totally affordable DIY project! Side note: I'm pretty sure we helped make this book a "best seller" on Amazon... Just saying! :)
