My Wedding - September 22, 2007

I'm sure by now everyone has watched or heard about the Royal Wedding. It was {a-m-a-z-i-n-g!}

All of this wedding coverage has me reflecting on my own wedding back in September of 2007.

Ours doesn't even compare to the Royal Wedding but I thought I would share a few (many) photos.

WARNING! Very photo heavy post!!

I warned you that I had a million photos!

That day went by so fast. I wish I could go back to the day and relax and take everything in.

To all you future brides take a minute to cherish the day. It truly does fly by.

I love you Daniel aka my handy man

Ribbon Rosette Magnet: Tutorial

Rosettes are very popular right now. Actually, they have been popular for years in the crafty blog world. I have used several tutorials making everything from paper rosettes to cloth rosettes. The ribbon rosettes are by far my favorite.

For this project you will need the following items...

 :: 1.5" silky ribbon ::
:: fast drying fabric glue ::
:: magnets ::
:: hot glue ::

[STEP ONE] Cut 18" of ribbon.
[STEP TWO] Tie the end of the ribbon in a knot.

[STEP THREE] Twist and turn the ribbon around the knot. Apply fabric glue often and hold for a few {long} seconds to ensure it dries.

[STEP FOUR] Keep twisting and turning...twisting and turning. Don't forget to keep gluing!

[STEP FIVE] Take the remaining piece of ribbon at the end and glue it to the side of the rose. I had to hold this piece in place for roughly 30 seconds to get it to attach properly.

[STEP SIX] Touch up any gaps with fabric glue and snip the stem on the back of the rosette.

[STEP SEVEN] Add fabric glue to the back of the rosette where the stem use to be.

[STEP EIGHT] After everything dries cut your magnet to size (I used a magnet roll.) Attach with hot glue to the back of the rosette.

Now you have a cute little magnet!

You can make these rosettes larger by using a longer piece of ribbon.
There are so many things you can use these rosettes for...

Such as simply placing on a clothespin

Adding to a headband

or even a picture frame

the rosette even looks elegant by itself.
