Using book pages and ribbon, make this cute project from Klaire at Paper me Happy, a vintage way to adorn your place settings with these DIY wedding ideas…

What you need

  • Old book
  • Glue
  • 50cm ribbon
  • Scissors
  • 2 x clothes pegs

Instructions – DIY wedding cutlery holders

  1. Gently rip out two pages from the book for each pouch.
  2. Taking one page, fold a 3cm flap down from the top of the page, then fold over once more to create a raised edge. Dab glue at either side to stick the raised edge down. Use the pegs to hold while drying – so you don’t have to!
  3. Cut the ribbon in half. Once the glue is dry, remove pegs and turn over.
  4. Add glue all around the bottom edge and sides, and then attach to the second page. Put the pages aside and leave until they are completely dry.
  5. Next dab a small blob of glue in between the top and bottom sides of the raised edge and slide the ribbons into the gap.
  6. Use the pegs again to secure the ribbon in place until it’s dry.
  7. Finally, tie the ribbon into a little bow, that goes around the back, then around the front of the pages for a really neat finish. Slip in the cutlery and your vintage diy wedding cutlery holder is done!
