...Celebrations, General ramblings

First anniversary ‘present’

October 28, 2012

This weekend sees my brother and his lovely wife celebrate their very first wedding anniversary!

Tradition dictates that this is the ‘Paper’ wedding anniversary, so I put my thinking cap on and consulted the kind people of Facebook land, and sent out a tweet for help.

There were some fab ideas, including framing wedding/honeymoon pictures, paper flowers, and handmade paper, which I have stashed away for another day. But this being me, and it being very last minute, I needed quick and simple. So this is what I came up with:

A card decorated with 2 hearts cut from a vintage book (they are both big readers), sewn in place with a button. (Apologies for the shadowy photo, it was late, I was tired, I couldn’t possibly wait until morning to take a better photo…)

And this is what I put inside:

I found an old monopoly set in a charity shop, and snapped it up as I have seen loads of cool things to make with all the bits on Pinterest (where else?!) so I thought that some monopoly money might make them smile. And they could always frame it (the card or the money!) if they want to afterwards.

So I know it’s not really a present, but I hope that it’s the thought that counts, and I certainly put more thought and time into this, than I might otherwise have done if I’d ordered something online.

Happy Anniversary Big Bro!
