Handmade ‘tying the knot’ save the dates made from brown card and twine
Charlie / 3 January 2012
The joys of having a photographer husband-to-be! If you’re the lovely Lisa, one of my blog readers, it means you can make pretty wedding details and get great pictures of them – which in turn means lovely photos to share with you all.
Lisa was inspired by my own rustic ‘save the dates’ and got in touch to share hers – I think they are so beautiful and they incorporate a really neat extra that Lisa found on this blog whilst searching for inspiration – a twine knot.
So Lisa combined two ideas – the brown folded card ‘save the date’ that we made, which didn’t need an envelope and was tied like a tiny parcel with raffia, and a sweet idea that when you open the card the knot in the piece of twine tightens, so you literally ‘tie the knot’.
I never realised that when I dreamt up and made our ‘save the dates’ that they would be so loved by other couples. There is something about the recycled rustic brown card and simple black text that just works so wonderfully together.
I’m so delighted to hear about other brides-to-be being inspired by our handmade ‘save the dates’ and to see their final creations. It’s also particuarly lovely to be able to share them with you, as I know this sort of style has been really popular on the blog – so if you’ve been inspired by our ‘save the dates’ do get in touch with some pictures, perhaps one day I’ll be able to do a post sharing them all as a big collage.
Many thanks to Lisa and her husband Matt for sharing their ‘save the date’ cards with us!
