Turn Your Bridesmaids Gifts Into Extrodinary

Looking to get a little crafty when it comes to your bridesmaid gifts? In this DIY project from Design Sponge, the bride chose beautiful earrings for each girl, but wanted to snazz things up a bit. So she decided to use pieces of wallpaper from a vintage sample book to turn the gifts from ordinary to special!

This concept could be applied to so many different small gifts - it’s a quick, easy, and an affordable way to dress up store-brand presents with an extra special touch.

Here’s what you need:
  1. Scraps of decorative paper or wallpaper
  2. A thick needle
  3. Glue Stick
  4. Scallop scissors

  • Once you have your supplies, cut your cardstock down to size.
  • Use your scallop scissors to cut the decorative paper slightly smaller than the cardstock.
  • Use your needle to punch holes in the cardstock.
  • Then, glue the decorative paper (no holes yet) to the cardstock.
  • From the back of the cardstock, use your needle to punch through the decorative paper. Slip the earrings in, and you’re done!
Afterward, the bride put them in jewellery boxes tied with ribbons from her wedding programs, and placed them inside makeup bags.
