25 years and a Lifetime


Is everyone ready for a nice long Memorial weekend?! I know I certainly am...My sister-in-law recently celebrated her 25 year wedding anniversary. It was perfect that Sister Stamps came out the Wedding couple image just in time for me to use =P I went happy with Washi paper and cherry blossoms on this gift I made them. It's pretty much a desk photo stand made from coasters =D

 First photo up is the front of the photo stand laying flat. The washi paper are from Hanko Designs I picked up awhile ago at the Stamp in A Hand show. He has the best washi selection and their made from Japan =) The heart shape block is from TGF - Film Die cut. The letters and numbers are from ATS - mini Alphabet & numbers die.

Up next is the inside of the photo stand. I used the Wedding Couple stamp and embellished with cherry blossom stickers. The red washi design at the spine of the photo stand is actually fabric tape. Cool huh? I got it at the Daiso store (They got some neat crafty goodies there for cheap!) I had a postage spellbinder which I cut out and written "Insert Photo Here" and distressed it with red ink on the left. 

Next is the back of the stand. I finished it off with the cherry blossom stickers to accent with the white washi paper I have in the background.  I used the washi tape on both sides of the stand in order to cover up the gap it needs to fold nice and snug.

Here is the inside again laid flat =D
Had a lot of fun making this for my sis-in-law. Hope you like my share as much as I enjoyed making it!
