So, it was inevitable that the crest would show up on the favors for wedding guests. I had the crest printed in gold on some cardstock…lots of cardstock… then proceeded to cut out and form 85 TinyBuildings. It was an adventure. At least I had the sense to allow myself lots of time, which I then squandered until I had about six weeks to make most of them. I ended up generating about a half dozen a day. Rough, but driven by love….
The most difficult part was making a variety rather than replicating the same form and format over-and-over again. I always want to form the TinyBuildings based on the proportions and layout of the original material…In this case that was the same 2 inch by 2 inch card with the same slightly-not -symmetrical drawing; with some segments of the image [sketches of their two cats] ‘demanding’ that I not cut off their legs or heads. Arghhhh! I wouldn’t say it got boring, but it was challenging to address each piece of cardstock with the same enthusiasm..HAHA!
But, they turned out wonderful, and everyone seemed thrilled to receive one. We packaged them in small lucite boxes so guests could drop them in their pockets to take home.
So, that’s what I did this spring. I don’t have, yet, any pictures of masses of these Tinybuildings, but I do have a couple shots, along with the special version I made for my daughter and her husband, which included their Invitation. The black dot on the roof of one little house is the fastener from the envelopes….
