There once was a paper bride...
Lauren in Craftiness, Crafty Goodness, Wedding, Wedding Madness

who tried and tried and tried,
to design her perfect day,
and keep jitters at bay,
and enjoy this crazy joyride!

Haha! I totally crack myself up with my terrible limericks! No one else thinks they're funny, but that's not really important, right? Hmmmm...

Anywho...back to today's post featuring The Paper Bride by Esther K. Smith. The title immediately caught my eye at the bookstore the other day: "I love paper! I'm a Bride!" This book is chock-full of cute ideas for personalizing your wedding with crafty goodness. Want to line your invitation envelopes? The Paper Bride will show you how. Feeling super crafty? Try your hand at pop-up maps, guest book garland, or hand-stitched photo albums. Paper is definitely playing a big part in our wedding-and I can't wait to scour this book for great ideas.
