I wanted to give my sister a little pressie before her wedding day, so I decided to make her a Wedding Charm Pin. I made the match box style box on my ecraft and finished it with the same ribbon I used for her wedding invites
Where I cut the heart aperture out I put a piece of pink card behind, inside the box I lined it with pink tissue paper
The card inside has the verse of something old, something new, something borrow, something blue and a sixpence for your shoe. I did it in word and then cut it out and used my fiskars corner scissors to round the corners
I have given this to her a week early as I did not want to upset her on her wedding day. The reason being our dad died four years ago and I know at this time she would like him with her. Our dad was a scuba diver and whenever he came up the ducks would gather around him - he was not a bird lover so ducks always remind us of him.
The card for her says:
Something Old - an old duck for dad
Something New - a silver horseshoe for luck
Something Borrow - Ribbon of an invitation
Something Blue - Blue crystal heart
Sixpence for your shoe - 1966 sixpence my gift to you
I used basic jewellery making bits to attach the charms to the pin, using jump rings to get them hanging just right. The safety pin is a special one and the head unscrews so you can slide on the beads and the jump rings, the sixpence is a 1966 one as that is the year my sister was born. When I gave it her she was very pleased and is going to wear it on her wedding day.
Thanks for Looking
