- Wedding: October 2012
I found these super cute personalized luggage tags from OftheFountain on Etsy for our Hawaii destination wedding. I thought about attaching a sticker to the back of the lugagge tags – “Will you be my bridesmaid?” but it’s hard to stick something onto leather. So that’s when we got started on a DIY bridesmaid/groomsmen card to go along with the luggage tags.
I measured the pink cardstock to be just a little bigger than the cello bags the tags came in. Next I found a bridesmaid dress line drawing online to trace onto the pink cardstock so it would be easier to cut. I really love one shoulder dresses but I couldn’t find a good one online so I traced just about everything except the right sleeve.
I cut strips from black cardstock for the “belt” of the dress and added a small floral sticker to it. The dresses looked a little too plain so I added some texture with an extra layer of pink tulle.
