Ransom Note Place Names

Firstly, apologies for the lack of blogging over the last week. We have been on a much needed holiday in St Ives recovering from our summer craft fairs! Now we’re back & ready to begin preparing for the christmas craft fairs 🙂

Today is another post about things that were made for our wedding. This time, it’s the place names.

As with everything else, we wanted something non-traditional that used recycled materials and was cheap. This is what we came up with:

Ransom note inspired place names which couldn’t be more recycled if they tried! The letters are cut from our collection of old magazines that we use for collage and the brown card is 100% recycled card stock, which is now 200% (?) recycled as we used the backs of some invitations that were printed out with the wrong time on. Luckily we noticed before sending them out that they said 12am instead of 12pm. Even we aren’t that non-traditional!

Joe kindly cut out a tub full of letters for me and spent ages looking for J’s as our families both seem to have A LOT of J names. Our names both begin with J, my sisters and brother all have names beginning with J and then there’s even more in the rest of the family! These were so much fun to make and I’ve now used the same idea to display prices of things at craft fairs.

Come back soon to see other things that were made for the wedding.
