Add a handmade finishing touch to the groom’s outfit with these adorable personalised accessories.
1. Take two Papermania Bare Basics Wooden Hearts and paint one side of each with Artiste Acrylic Paint in Night Blue. Leave to dry before painting one or two more coats for a truly even coverage. Repeat on the other sides once dry.
2. Use the Papermania Wedding Ever After 5 x 5'' Mini Alphas & Numbers Clear Stamps to print the bride and groom’s initials in the middle of one side of each of the hearts. Do so with Artiste Clear Emboss Pigment Ink. While the ink is still wet, sprinkle over Papermania Seafoam Embossing Powder and lightly tap off the excess. Use a pink heat tool to heat the powder until it melts, and allow to cool.
3. Once both hearts are embossed, coat the stamped side of each with a layer of Anita’s 3D Clear Gloss and leave to dry. Depending on the thickness of your layer, this may take up to four hours. Don’t worry about coating the undecorated face, as this won’t be seen. Attach the finished hearts to metal cufflinks with strong glue.
