I don't argue with inspiration and a good idea, so I channeled my inner Elise and ran with it. Now, I actually photographed this couple's engagement session, so I took images from their session and created my own homemade photostrip in Adobe Photoshop, then printed it on photo paper. Then I got a black frame on sale at Hobby Lobby and voila!
These photos are not fantastic because I actually forgot to take pictures of the gift until I got to the reception. So these are good 'ole iPod Touch pics. lol
But you can see how chic, modern, and personal it turned out. I wrote in Sharpie pen down the side of the strip their names and wedding date. Plus I added satin ribbon in their wedding colors and some houndstooth ribbon for good measure. ;) I'm obsessed with how it turned out.
I just thought someone might benefit from this gift idea because it's quick, inexpensive, handmade, and SO personal. This will hopefully be a keepsake that the couple will display in their newlywed nest and cherish for a long time!
If you would like to see a digital tutorial on how I created the photostrip, just let me know in the comments!
