Framing your wedding vows is a great way to keep your personal commitment to your spouse at the forefront of your mind on a daily basis.

It helps serve as a visual reminder of those promises you’ve made and can be designed in colors to match your everyday home décor. This also makes for a great project to gift to a bride and groom after their special day.

Scrapbook Supplies

 

First, you’ll gather some cardstock, patterned paper and a few miscellaneous embellishments. Then, open your word processing program, insert a text box and size it to 7” x 9”. Format the text box to include a double lined border. Type up the vows, and format them using the font size and type that you desire. Print onto regular printer paper to ensure the spacing is exactly what you like.

AdvantEdge Border Punch System

 

Using the AdvantEdge Border Punch System along with the adapter and the Lacy Doubles Interchangeable Border Punch Cartridge, punch down the length of a 12” piece of cream cardstock. Use your paper trimmer to cut the punched edge from the cardstock leaving a ¼” wide cardstock strip attached.

Placement of Paper and Vows

 

Once satisfied with the text spacing and placement, cut a light-colored patterned paper to 8 ½” x 11”. You’ll want to choose one that has a subtle print on it so it doesn’t compete visually with the text you’re printing on it. Place paper in your printer and print out your text once again. Trim patterned paper so there is a ½” border outside the printed text box. Adhere printed vows onto cream colored cardstock and trim, leaving a ¼” border. Adhere lacy doubles punched border strip along the bottom edge and trim to proper width.

Adhere vows to a 12” x 12” piece of grey cardstock, right aligned. Cut a 1” x 11” strip of patterned paper. Adhere vertically to the left-hand side of the printed vows. Embellish with a strip of fabric tape and a sticker border.

Embellished Vows

 

Add the ‘Our Wedding Day’ Stacked Statement to the blank space at the bottom portion of the wedding vows. Finish embellishing with additional cluster of embellishments in the lower left corner including resin flowers, burlap rosette, stick pin and beads all from Maya Road. Be mindful when you choose your embellishments of whether or not you’re using a flat frame with glass. If your embellishments are extra bulky and you want them to be behind glass, you might consider using a shadowbox frame instead.
