A dear friend of mine is getting married next year and she asked me to make samples of boutonnieres for the groomsmen. Her wedding motif is blush and silver-gray and she wanted a vintage-themed celebration. Vintage-themed weddings are the best, in my opinion. It evokes so much love and intimacy unlike other themes that border on extravagance and pretenses.
So anyway, when I was brainstorming for the designs of the boutonnieres, I thought of the concept of "key to my heart." Really, what could be more vintage than that?
I came up with two samples. This is Boutonniere 1:
And this is Boutonniere 2:
Note to self: Be mindful not to expose the holes of the pearls. Haha!
See what I mean?
I used a vintage-looking fabric to cover the key.
I used regular keys for the samples but when everything is finalized, I'd love to use those vintage skeleton keys. I hope I can find a handful of those by then.
Happy crafting, everyone!
