Inspired by all you ladies and the lovely thank you parasol's you have I decided to DIY myself a one. Got the paper parasol from


It was about £10 including postage and packaging. Then got a lovely font from http://1001free fonts.com called chopin script which I printed out at 400pt. I was going to stick this to the back of parasol and trace through but it didn't work out as the centre section of the parasol was in the way at the back. So I had to just freehand copy the text with a pencil. Then I just painted the words with a very thin brush and some black acrylic paint.

Overall it cost £12 to do and is going to be great for my thank you cards, once again thanks ladies for your constant great ideas and inspiration!!

You did a fantastic job. Love the font. I had the same problem too trying to trace the letters on the back.
