Our Biker Chicks have been very, very busy creating some special project ideas for handmade wedding gifts for the bride and groom. We wanted to show you that there are many ways you can use our gorgeous Swoon collection to alter items. Let's have Biker Chicks Corrie, Robbie and Tania tell you all about it.
Biker Chick Corrie Jones created this stationary gift set for the wedding couple. It includes two custom pencils, 4 small note cards, 1 matchbook style notepad and a wedding journal.
Paisley Smitten Paper
Paisley Entwined Paper
Black Tie Stripe Paper
Kiss the Bride Paper
Clear Cut Shapes
Pearl & Jewel Stickers

Biker Chick Robbie Herring created this is a paper mache book box. She altered it for a place to keep momentos from a wedding. It is the perfect size to put an invitation, garter, flowers, or any of those other special things from a wedding all in one place.
Tip: Cover both the inside and outside of the book box. Measure carefully and do each section individually. For the sides, cut paper 1/2 inch longer than the measure length and overlap the flat areas. Attach the rectangles in large areas last to cover overlap. Try to get as close as possible to actual measurements. Using a scoring tool makes the folding easier. Finally, if you have a bit of a gap, use trim to cover it.
Tip 2: Use Mod Podge to attach and cover all paper surfaces. After you attach the clear stickers, put a layer of Mod Podge over them, too. Using Mod Podge on your flowers will stiffen them up and make them easy to dust. :)

Biker Chick Tania Willis created this romantic idea for a bride and her groom. But let's have Tania tell you all about it...
I decided I wanted to put together a little album of sorts for the bride to be able to write love notes to her love. While the bride is welcome to use it how she sees fit, the album can be gifted with a note to the bride instructing her to take a few moments of quiet time each week, during her first year of marriage, to reflect on all the qualities she adores in her groom and then gift him with these notes of love on their first wedding anniversary. It becomes somewhat of an open love letter to her groom. Since the album, constructed from a few core pieces from chipboard album kit, is bound together with extra large book rings, this album can be something that can be added to for years and years to come.
The inside cardstock pages are simply cut to a measurement of 3 ¼” x 8” using a contrasting, yet coordinating, color of cardstock. I can’t even imagine what a treasure something like this would be for children and grandchildren to stumble upon in years to come. The thought of it excites me!
