DIY your own alternative boutonnieres with a little help from Epbot.

Epbot's tutorial for these amazing steampunk ribbons would be a fantastic way to build your own alternative boutonnieres. Whether you're also interested in steaming it up or you'd rather go another direction, this ribbon medal is a great foundation for your own custom look.

Put together a medal ribbon, some charms, mini brads, and a bit of chain.

Learn how it's done over at Epbot. Then come back and show us what you come up with! Share your finished bouts in the Offbeat Bride Flickr pool!

  2. Ahhh! My two favourite blogs, colliding! So glad you're featuring her stuff.

    I found Offbeat Bride through CakeWrecks a few years ago, and now Offbeat Bride is featuring Jen's other blog. It's the circle of the Internet and I love it.

  3. Haha we are actually getting custom wedding medals from a friend for the wedding. This is a very cool tutorial though. It's really easy to follow.

  4. I love these, they can get very specifically custom depending on the groomsmen. Also, I really love that it is shown off laying on a Harry Potter book! :)
