DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

Future couples are always thinking of ways to make the best wedding cards to send to their loved ones and significant others. However, a lot of people just choose the simple or artistic do-it-yourself wedding cards, or just buy ready-made templates online. But the best ones I want to share are those that are funny, one-of-a-kind, or those having weird designs.

The first one is a shared sample card from Funtoosh.com. Instead of choosing those standard formalities in the card's wording, it is formatted like a matching type exam except that; it has no blanks in it. The introduction is hilariously realistic that buries the old-fashioned happily-ever-after fantasy in marriage.

The second one is a wedding card that looks like a notebook PC with “Wedding BELL” as the logo, “BELL” has a similar logo design as Dell's. Inside looks like a desktop with different icons and a chatbox that states the history of how the couple met. If you are the kind of couple who met through chat or through the internet, this might be a great idea to start as your wedding theme.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

The third best wedding card for me is a Halloween wedding invitation with a great combination of orange and black in the form of an owl. Though this is not good for couples who are superstitious, this can be very unique if the occasion is done on November. An additional surprise would be… during the ceremony, the flower girls can put candies in a plastic pumpkin container and throw them for the guests instead of flower petals in a woven basket.

Next is the laser-cut card. Though there have been a lot of laser-cut designs for decorations and cardboard framing, it is now a fad for such invitations. There are many intricate designs to choose from and you can even submit a design of your own. They are very stylish yet they retain the elegant parlance in writing.

The last one is the do-it-yourself wheel card. Some websites now offer editing and templates if you choose to make one. It's just made of two cardboards or chipboards cut in a slightly different-sized circle with a plug or grommet in the center to make the wheel turn, once the peep box is in line with the title, it shows the details on that particular heading.

I am open for comments and suggestions. Feel free to share what you know if you have additional information on best wedding cards.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
