- Wedding: April 2012
OK when I was first engaged I fell in love with this picture and was determined to make them for my wedding
Well we followed the instructions http://www.papermash.co.uk/products/drinkparasols but the Wilton Doilies I used did not have the same feel – it was time consuming, a bit messy and had a very homemade look. I almost scrapped the idea when voila I found this item
hmmm they had to be assembled too but no layering of cardstock on doily, were laser cut and the slit was precut
So we tried it – and we used double sided tape instead of the sticky dots they shipped with and instead of the glue in the tutorial above – worked fabulously and then stuck the predone skewers in instead of having to cut and glue and finagle a bead on the top
and . . .
SUCCESS – 196 of these are done and it took very little time
