Wedding DIYsRachel WaringComment

Are you a DIY wedding QUEEN? If so, this marbled paper tutorial by the clever clogs at FTD is just for you. Perfect for wedding stationery, gifts, cards and decorations, marbling paper is also really fun to make - win win. You could even use this alongside our bridesmaids proposal box tutorial to jazz up the gift tag, or for bonus wedding memories, set up a marbled paper station at your hen party and teach your bridesmaids how to do it too. You will not only impress everyone with your skills, but also more hands make lighter work for you (and what else is a bride squad for right?!).
