When one of your best friends ask you to design her wedding invitations you can definitely feel a bit overwhelmed with the pressure. You feel it should be something different, something out of the ordinary. You already did the whole ‘package with all sorts of cards in it’, ergo it can’t be that again. So you know it’s time to ‘sit down and be creative’. Yeah, like that ever worked before.

So, you wait for the theme and then you start your restless nights. They chose ‘Bohemian’. Now what? After some failed attempts I knew I had to get back to the basis. Bohemian, what’s that about? A quick search online taught me it’s all about lace, flowers and lanterns. Check.

Slowly the idea hit me. I was going to create a card which would turn into something else, namely; a DIY lantern.
