Pinterest Made Me Do It

How many of you go on Pinerest? And then how many of you actually create some of the things you pin??

I am guilty, guilty of pinning like crazy but never attempting any of the wonderful ideas that I see. Until recently, My good friends wedding was this past weekend and I wanted to give her a handmade gift but had no time to stitch anything. So I came across an idea to take the wedding invitation and cut it into strips and place it in a clear ornament.... I am so glad I cam across this idea. I can really see doing this again and also for a baby's first Christmas. Such a great idea. I curled the pieces of paper around a pen to get the spiral effect but left the Bride, Groom and Date in a straight line.

Topped it of with a bow in the wedding colors placed it in a box and when they return form the honeymoon I will take this to them.
