Do It Yourself Wedding Jewelry

Our do it yourself jewelry section is long overdue and we are finally building it up and adding to it! How to Get Your Ring Custom Made is my story of how I got my ring made from sketch to finished product...and I'm not talking about using one of those online ring designers where you pick out the parts. This was a ring that only existed in my mind. It was easier (and cheaper) than I thought! More new jewelry articles:

Reader Question: Seeded Paper

Heather wrote in with this great reader question:

I know seeded paper (that you can plant and flowers will grow) is very popular in wedding invites now, but do you have any idea for doing something yourself with it? We already have invites and don't want to order anything pre-made.

Heather, I love seeded paper! To play around with it, I bought some seeded paper sheets from Botanical Paperworks and then found a very large (2.5") paper craft punch in the shape of a leaf to use as tags on gifts.

Simply punch out the seeded paper using a craft punch shape (many shapes to pick from from leaves to hearts to flowers to animals) and you have an instant small favor that you could attach to a placecard or tie around the napkin at the tables.
