Super Classy Wedding Lanterns and Boxes, with Cricut Explore Air 2!

Thank you for stopping by!
I recently received a small order for a wedding shower, and I was thrilled to add my personal touch to the items I created for the bride. She was looking for lanterns, and I was so happy that Cricut made this so easy for me. Using nothing but the best quality supplies, the lanterns were impeccable, and the little box was where I also delivered the tealights for her special day.

I decorated the pretty lanterns with silver accents, and pearlescent flowers. The little sprigs to mimic baby's breath were also accented in pearl and silver. The finishing touch was the green ribbon to match the wedding colors.


Each lantern will be lit with a tealight. For this, I created a little box to match!


The box is topped with dry-embossed silver card-stock, a medallion with the couple's initials, and a small sprig to match the lanterns. I topped it with the prettiest bow in white and vellum paper, finished with a clear gem.

I made sure to add a white organza ribbon to the box to finish it off, and add the touch or pearl-inspired white.

To show the bride other possibilities to her special day, I also made a goody-bag sample with the bridal dress-form, a touch of the same pearl and silver colors, and the green silk ribbon.
These items can all be customized as you wish! Contact me at paintsandglitter@gmail.com for special items made just for you!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
