While it may be cold today at our little studio I have made a cheery and bright new DIY!  The sparkler send-off has become a popular modern tradition and today I have provided custom sparkler packaging in a variety of hues.

Sparklers can be purchased in boxes at any local party store. Simply slide a few through the printable packaging and they’re ready to be set out for guests. Make sure you have some matches or lighters nearby in case guests don’t have their own. In fact why not get some coordinating wrapping paper and cover Lion matchboxes so that they suit your colour scheme? Just be sure to cover only 3 sides and leave one of the striking sides clear.

When putting together this super simple DIY, I recommend making very small slits above and below the text area. The smaller the slit the tighter the sparklers will be kept in place. For added structure tape the sparklers to the card at the back.

Happy Crafting!

    Bianca, The upper message (Light me) is Eccentric STD but the lower message (When the …) seems to be in a different font. Do you mind giving me this font too? Many thanks. I promise I will not bother you again :)

Francois & Lenate’s Beach Sunrise Shoot

Today we share the beautiful honeymoon shoot of Lenate & Francois who were the lucky winners of a couple shoot competition run by the lovely Claire Harries Photography. What made this shoot so fantastic was that the couple got up at 3 am to be camera ready at the crack of dawn for a sunrise shoot on Llandudno beach. The early morning mist and light was spectacular and certainly contributed a great deal to enhance the dreaminess of these beautiful images. Enjoy!
