Wooden birds take seconds to make with the Fuse!

  2. Glue bamboo skewers to the back of birds.
     
  3. Create a tiny bunting for the birds to carry. I created simple squares with a heart punched at the center. Hot glue string to back of each bird at beak.

 

Chalkboard Labels
Chalkboard bird labels are not only decorative, they are useful for helping guests keep track of their drink!

  1. Run self-adhesive chalkboard sheets through the Fuse using the Bird Design Set.
     
  2. Peel off the backing and apply the label to a mason jar.

 

Tissue Paper Heart
A large heart in the background is both dramatic and super easy to make!

  1. Run assorted tissue paper through the Fuse using the scalloped circle die, which comes with the Starter Set. You can run a large amount of tissue through at once, so this step takes seconds!
     
  2. Staple sets of eight layers of tissue circles together.
     
  3. Crumple each layer toward the center one at a time as shown. Puff layers back out slightly for fullness.

  4. Free-hand cut a large heart from cardboard.
     
  5. Hot glue tissue paper flowers onto heart to cover completely.

 

Chalkboard Frames
With chalkboards so trendy right now, they are fun to incorporate into party designs! Whenever I try to draw with chalk, it looks like a toddler did it. Thankfully, the Fuse is perfect for cutting out templates using thick materials.

Love Birds Wedding Decor

  1. Cut a frame with the Fuse using chipboard or thick cardstock and the Frame Design Set.
     
  2. Place the frame template onto the chalkboard and trace with chalk.
     
  3. Free-hand doodle inside the frames. If you don’t like the design, smudge it with your finger for a cloudy effect as I did with one of my frames.
     
  4. Print out 1.5 x 2.5 inch mini photos and tape inside frames.
