Love, Love, Love...DIY Style

All You Need Is Love!  And look what Laura did with a little love, the Monogram Junque Kit from Rhonna Designs and some candles from her local Dollar Tree.  The tutorial is by Laura on In The Looop Blog.  And the very best part, well parts I guess.  The cost? $6.00.  The other best part? SSEICI (So Simple Even I Can Do It!) I love projects (especially wedding projects) that are quick, simple, easy and inexpensive. As Laura says "Kool Aid Budget with Champagne Tastes!" 

You'll need:

4 tall candles~ these came from Dollar Tree
2 sheets vellum or transparent scrapbook paper 8"x11"
Edge punch-this is optional
Elmers CraftBond™ Permanent Tape Runner or any other double sided tape self adhesive Scrapbook Tape (at your craft store, or in your favorite junk drawer)
And some scrapbooking bling (again, Michaels is a great source)

Visit this site for the complete tutorial (not to mention a million other ideas).   And visit Laura's personal blog Pink Cake Plate Diaries for more great creative ideas.

Imagine using these are decorations for your guestbook table, your place card table, or gift table.  Or if you're ambitious, make four for every table and use as your centerpieces. 

Reuse your edge punch for your invitations, save the dates and other paper projects.
