- Wedding: August 2010
I am getting married in about three months. (Excited!) I was at a local party store getting ideas of what I needed for the wedding. I was looking at all the pretty things but also looking at the prices. Can we say overpriced! So I was at this store just wondering and asking myself “should I or no.” Then I looking at these place cards and it hit me! I can do this, I got time! I have a lot of time at work and at home why not! Instead of wasting my time watching T.V. I can be making things!
I was all excited and I went to the craft store!! I had made a scrapbook a while ago and it was fun! So I was on a mission! So……
- I started with my favors. I had ordered these candle holders with our names and the date of the wedding. We going to have a lot of people who speak both English & Spanish. So I decided to make tags that say “Thank you and Gracias”
- I got some scrapbook paper with a brown and pink design, ( FYI my colors are brown & pink & champagne ) for the background ( that base of the tags)
- Then I got a pretty light pink paper to have the saying on it and also got a punch out design. I wanted a heart but I couldn’t fine one but I loved the one I ended with.
And then I went to work on my prototypes to show my other half. It took me about two days bc it’s a lot of measuring and making sure things are cut right. I showed my co-workers and they loved it. The escort cards are just 4X4 paper that I cut out from the scrapbook paper and folded them in the middle. While at the store I bought a stamp of heart. And I placed the heart on the left side if it. The favors I got a pink bag and I tied the tags around it. I don’t have the candles holders yet so I use a bar of soap. I did not have anything else but you get the idea. I’ve already started with the tags.
I am thinking about making my own guest book. I’m not sure I’ll keep you guys posted.
