Wedding Gift Dilemma Solved!

4 Materials
30 Minutes

What do you give a couple whom you've never met?
That was our problem. Sure cash would be well received, but everyone loves to open a present, right?

The invitation we received was inspiring. It isn't your traditional white with embossed flowers and hearts. Found a great frame for a reasonable price that matched perfectly. It was easy to put it all together and we *knew* the couple would love it. Before placing it inside the frame I wrote a few encouraging words, should they ever open it up.
Top off the gift with cash in the card and it's perfect!
Hope that you find this helpful.

    Great idea. I received a decoupaged wooden plaque with my invitation 30+ years ago and it still hangs in my bedroom. Love it
