Instructables

The big wedding is TOMORROW! The groom has carefully chosen Becky's ROCK and has it safely put away. Becky is so delighted with her bright dazzling diamond she wanted to make a pro-to type to share its beauty. Then the young couple realized they did not have a guest book! This is an instructable about how they resolved their complex problem. Becky gets two rocks! One for show and tell and the other for her important guest to autograph!

Step 1: SUPPLIES

  1. One large flat rock.
  2. White spray paint.
  3. Gold spray paint if you need to paint the band or tubing.
  4. One candle holder with dimension.
  5. Permanent marker to match wedding colors and one that will show up on the rock.
  6. Two yards of ribbon for the card and signing pen (opitional)
  7. Two feet gold, silver, or clear 1/2 inch tubing.  You will need to paint the clear because it does not show up very well in pictures. 
  8. Strong glue. 
  9. One sheet card stock paper or 10X10.
  10. Fabric 10X10.
  11. Dried rose bud.
  12. Silk flower.
  13. Ruler or straight edge.
  14. Scissors.
  15. 1 1/2 inch bolt slightly smaller than tubing to attach the ends together to form a circle. 
  16. Out-door LED  solar powered, battery operated bright light.  ( Opitional )
  17. Small very bright battery operated LED light or a light as shown.  An LED will be brighter and better.  
  18. Small plastic cup or prop for the candle holder. 

Step 2: FINDING THE PERFECT LARGE FLAT ROCK

Picture of FINDING THE PERFECT LARGE FLAT ROCK

Finding the perfect rock will be the most difficult task with this instructable.  Plan a day trip with the family, drive out to the country, have a picnic, and find that perfect rock.  The rock this size is very heavy by the way.  If you're a woman you will need another person to help you lift and carry it to the car.

I followed the guidelines. I was also notified of which instructables were eligible for the contest.
Adhesives keep the world together and Gorilla Glue makes the best adhesives around. Their products are great for projects and so we've teamed up with them to kick off the Gorilla Glue Make It Stick Contest!

The rules are simple: make a new Instructable that involves an adhesive to enter the contest. It can be a product from Gorilla Glue or not, just as long as it's stuck together and it's awesome.


Supplies:
One large flat rock.
White spray paint.
Gold spray paint if you need to paint the band or tubing.
One candle holder with dimension.
Permanent marker to match wedding colors and one that will show up on the rock.
Two yards of ribbon for the card and signing pen (opitional)
Two feet gold, silver, or clear 1/2 inch tubing. You will need to paint the clear because it does not show up very well in pictures.
Strong glue.
Paste the fabric on the front of the card. (Glued here.)

Great idea, Sylvia! You are always so creative. Wish I had one for Thursday when Casey and Donna have their wedding in my garden.

Because I am old and wise I have discovered that it is the nerds that seem to fair well in this world in their later years, so you do have something to look forward to if you haven't already. How do I know? My kids always hung out with the nerds and you would be surprised if you heard their stories.Now let me be the nerd. I know what LOL is but what is LOLZ????
