Today I thought I would share a sweet way to display antique hankies that I am going to use at the antique mall that I have been percolating for a while . I checked out Graphics Fairy looking for the bride, and found this old photo. She is perfect because both of her hands are raised above her waist line.
After printing out the brides and trimming them, I cut a slit the length of each brides waist, and then folded the antique hanky to fit through the slit. I held it in place with double sided tape on the back of the bride's bodice.
Next a bow made from antique seam binding, added the blue touch that goes with the classic poem so well. I made up the header cards, using a frame I also found on Graphics Fairy.
I slipped them into a cellophane bag and stapled the header on top. Wouldn't one of these make a charming gift for a bridal shower? The bride could tuck it the hankiy inside her wedding dress during the wedding as 'something old' and then cherish it as a memento of the wedding as well as of the giver.
Thanks for stopping by!!
