Made by Momo. When is saw this I knew right away I wanted to make one. A friend of mine's son is getting married a few weeks and I thought this would be a perfect gift. The photo on the sign was sent out with the wedding invitation. I chose colors that went with colors in the photo. Each section of the sign is 4" X 6". I started with chipboard, and covered it with a dark turquoise card stock. The patterned paper is by Bo Bunny. I cut the mats from the patterned paper at 3 3/4" x 5 3/4". I used Plantin Schoolbook for their names and the date. I cut the letters from cream paper at 1 1/4" and the shadow from the same dart turquoise also at 1". The word Forever is from the Tie the Know cartridge and was cut at 2" also in cream and turquoise. I matted the picture with the same cream and turquoise and placed it on the center section of the sign. I used my Bind-it-All and 1/2" wires to attach the sections together. The ribbon I got at Joanns. the flowers are Prima flowers and I added some clear rhinestones to the center of each flower as well as some smaller rhinestones to the centers of some of the flowers on the patterned paper. The rhinestones don't show up well in this picture. Check out Momo's blog (linked above) for a great video tutorial on how to make these signs.
