    Ok, I'm not very good at DIY stuff, but this forum has been great! I bought a heat gun to make center piece candels like in this thread...

      Embossing is so much fun! There is such a good selection of embossing powders at Michael's!

      Have fun! :)

          Embossing powders are powders that you heat up to give an image a raised, glossy look and feel.

          Here is a link to a site where you can purchase the powders (you can get them at craft stores too!) Embossing: Accessories: Online Catalog: The Stampin' Place: Rubber Art-Stamps, Accessories & Custom

            Have you thought about making petal or confetti cones? The guests throw them at you as you walk down the aisle, it's an alternative to rice or bubbles.

            Alyee form the knot has a template on her page. They are super easy. I'll post a pic when I find one.

              I think I am going to do these. You can punch the holes out but leave them flat, and assemble when you get there. It will add some pizazz to the chairs and all you need to assemble is some ribbon, tape and scissors!

                  Sorry, I postd the first post and then had to run out...

                  Erin, I LOVE the cones on the chairs, if I have the time, energy and FI doesn't kill me, I soooo might do it!!!! The resort supplies white folding chairs for teh ceremony...so the cones hanging on them would look really cute!

                  Andi, it was really really easy to do! I read this Heat Embossing - How to Emboss and this How to Emboss: Using embossing powder, heat guns, stampers last night and then I went out today got the ink pad, two stamps, the powder and the paper to play with it. I tried a few out on regular white paper first, but it didn't come half as good as the card stock.

                  Oh, and in my first post, I said I did a pic of my sister...I did two, one had my sister and her dog, the other was of my two dogs...apparently I posted the pic of my two dogs LOL

                  Now I'm trying to think of things to use embossed paper for...any suggestions? LOL

                    embossing is great.

                    Love the candle. I got the instructions for doing that off one of the gals on Split Coast Stampers & have just needed time to try it.

                      Very cool! The candle's look great! & those little cones would really spice up the plain white chairs!
