DECORATIVE TAPE

I love decorative tape and there are so many different types on the market now from fabric tape to paper tape to washi tape. One $4 roll of tape could do your whole wedding!

Use it to Embellish:

  • Centerpiece Vases
  • Envelopes (money envelopes for gift table or wedding invites)
  • Seating Chart
  • Candles
  • Guest Book
  • Paper Lanterns
  • Banners
  • Paper Garlands
  • Mason Jar Drinking Glasses
  • Wedding Cake Base
  • Wedding Favor Boxes
  • Serving Trays
  • Wine Bottles

Make it Different:

  • Mix a combination of 2 or 3 tapes together
  • Use pinking sheers to give the tape a scalloped edge
  • Cut into squares or use a paper punch and make circles or other shapes
  • Punch small holes into the tape for a decorative polka dot design

DECORATIVE STAMPS

How gorgeous is this lace stamp above, and again, we are only talking a few dollars. If you are having a vintage wedding, it’s a necessity, but it will add a romantic feel to any wedding.

Use it to Embellish:

  • Wedding Favor Tags
  • Place Cards
  • Table Number Cards
  • Banners
  • Table Cloths & Runners (use fabric paint to stamp)
  • Envelopes (money envelopes for gift table or wedding invites)
  • Signage
  • Cupcake Picks
  • Wedding Programs
  • Menus
  • Paper Napkins
  • Drink Coasters
  • Backdrop Fabric (again, use fabric paint)

Make it Different:

  • Use metallic ink
  • Add glitter when ink is still wet
  • Only use parts of the stamp (as shown in photo)
  • Experiment by dipping in tea to get a vintage feel
  • Stamp over top of one image in a different color, off slightly to create a 3D effect

It is amazing how these two inexpensive products offer you so many possibilities to add all those unique finishing touches to your wedding. How many more can you think of?
