Our lightboxes are popular choices for people who want to create glowing, classy lighting for their parties and events. These versatile luminaries can be used to create stunning centerpieces just by simply adding ribbon, crystals or flowers. Add a coloured LED light or light cube…and marvel at the effect!
Our customers have used them to hang in trees, create glowing aisles and light up ordinarily hard-to-illuminate areas...the possibilities are endless.

Planning an eco-friendly wedding or children's birthday party? Looking for a cute idea for favours that will cost you next to nothing? I found this great tutorial for Paper Roll Seed Packets! These are so adorable - I had to look twice when I realised what they were made out of!
(Brides? This is a great DIY project to involve junior members of the wedding party in, too!)
These are simply made out of Paper Towel Rolls! How many you need will depend on how many guests you are expecting - however if you get your friends to collect these for you - you'll have more than enough in no time!
Flatten the rolls and measure them into three equal segments for cutting. Once cut, staple one side, insert your seeds and staple the other side to close. Stamp and decorate in your desired colours.

One of my guilty pleasures is spending my morning, idly scrolling through my favourite wedding blogs and sighing over the gorgeous whimsical, vintage & DIY weddings that are happening around the globe. I'd like to share a few pics of one in particular with you today - which made me smile.
So simple and so gorgeous!
I love the quaint table-numbering idea here. And the table decorations themselves are so simple and so beautiful - it's a DIY dream! It is amazing how effective glass bottles, doilies, fabric and paper off-cuts can be - and so easy to customise within your colour scheme!
