Summer Wedding: DIY Wedding Gifts

9 Jul

My co-worker is getting married in a week and I wanted to make the couple something memorable and stands out from the crowd of gifts…so I came up with the idea of customizing their gift. I made them gold Mr. and Mrs. mugs with the date of their wedding inscribed on the ear of the mug. Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of those mugs before I gave this gift…. But along with the mugs, I also made a paper art piece that had their names, their wedding date and the lovely couple holding hands in front of their wedding reception location, the famous Milwaukee Pabst Brewery. Check it out and please share your thoughts!!

    Thanks so much! I pretty much just google imaged the location of their wedding…. and did a brief sketch of the background… then added a silhouette of a chick and guy in the foreground… and tied it all together with the floral accents and their names at the bottom.

    I’m more than open to discuss working with you on customizing a gift for your brother!
