I made this for Kittykill for her wedding this coming weekend!  Smiley  Their theme is Day of the Dead/Voodoo/Tiki - so, those typical white lace-covered books just wouldn't do justice!


Please don't think, "Wow.  You made her a dead tree.  How sweet!" 'cause it gets better, I swear!  Tongue




Instructions for the guests...






Acid free, archival ink... yay.


So I'm not responsible for burning her wedding down. Wink  They flicker just like flames...tee hee.


Hopefully once everyone has left their name or note to her & hubby, the whole tree will be full of leaves of love & wisdom.  Kiss  I hope they like it!

Thanks much!  She said she would send pictures of the "after" after the wedding... I'm excited to see it in action!  Hehe.

I love the little owl - he can't help but be cute, even by himself I guess.  Cheesy

Thanks so much!  We're getting married next year, so I'm trying to think of another idea for our wedding, too.

Thanks!  Grin  I think I'm going to make something similar, but use it as a jewelry holder.  I've seen some but they were quite expensive & we can't have that.  Wink

Ha!!  I can only imagine the look on his face when you said that!  Crazy crafting blurts like that are priceless. Cheesy  You two (I think that's him!) are very cute in your avatar, too.  Smiley

Oh yeah, so are so many themes the idea could be taylored for!  I was going to make little sugar skulls from poly clay & maybe a pinata to hang in the tree because her theme is Day of the Dead, but time got away from me.
