Two of our good friends are getting married this May . . . on Cinco de Mayo, in fact! So a few friends and family got together over the holidays and threw them a little shower. My mother-in-law (a.k.a. "Annie") came up with the most fun idea for their gift . . .
We started with a large piece of painted plywood.
Using Word, we printed out the number "5" (the month and day of the wedding).
I put the cut out "5" on an overhead projector and traced the projected "5" on the plywood.
Then, we cut out and glued photos of the couple inside the traced "5."
Once it was done, we painted the entire piece of plywood with Mod Podge.
The final product came out looking like this.
I'll confess, I'm a bit jealous I don't have one for myself.
