A special bridal gift

Jenn at Craft-o-maniac is so darn talented, I only wish that someday crafting ideas came to me as easily as they do her! My brother-in-law is getting married this coming month and I wanted to give his bride-to-be something special and something personal but I just wasn't sure what. Luckily Jenn gave me just the idea.

Here is how I made this fun project:

I started by ironing the tissue paper to get out all the creases. Yes, this can be done at a very low iron setting. Next, I cut a piece of black felt to frame up their photo. After the felt was cut I used a scrap booking photo adhesive to adhere the photo to the felt, then I did the same to the back of the felt to adhere it to the tissue paper. Now it was time to clean off all the finger prints from the glass. Of course I just used Windex. After putting the frame back together it was time to bring out my Cricut. Finally, I cut out her soon to be last name and two small hearts from black vinyl.

Tada, there you have it a great personal bridal shower gift for the soon to be Mr. & Mrs. Garcia which symbolizes when their two hearts will become one!

I love it and think that I need to make something like this for the hubby and I.

Today I am linking up with the following blogs, check them out for great ideas and inspiration!
