- Wedding: September 2014 - Banff, Alberta
Finally finished my WYBMBMB!
I went to the hardware store and picked out of colours from the paint chips. I grabbed a blank one and embossed it with bronze embossing powder to show our accent colour. The top piece I wrote with an embossing pen and embossed it with bronze powder too and inked the edge.
Tied them together with leftover twine I had.
Designed their duties in photoshop and printed them on vellum:

I want you to feel completely comfortable in your dress so all I am doing is choosing the color and fabric and leaving the rest up to you! For shoes I am thinking simple beige flats. Don’t want those heels sinking into the grass at the meadow!

I want your role to be simple and stress free, all I ask is:
Show up at the bachelorette party to go dancing.
Show up at the welcome picnic and ceremony rehearsal.
Wear a pretty dress.
Hold pretty flowers.
I may recruit you for some artsy stuff in exchange for wine.
And most of all, I want you to have fun!
Then I cut out the background paper, inked them both and stuck em together.
Tied these together with twine too
I designed the tank tops and ordered them.
Put everything into the box with some beige tissue paper.
Her name: I cut out her name and shadow using my scrapbooking cutter and embossed the inner letters. The shadow I inked. Stuck it to the box with 3d tape.
Tag: I wrote it out in photoshop and printed it on vellum. Inked the edge, taped it to a tage. Inked the tag. Put an eyelet on the tag. Wrapped the twine around the box and tied the tag on.
Boxes were $3
Tissue paper was $1 and I have tons left.
Already had the paper and embossing powder. Only used 1 brown 12×12, 1 beige 12×12 and 1 8.5×11 vellum for all three boxes. A gigantic roll of twine was $2 and have tons left. Tank tops ended up being $20 each after the unexpected duty charge.
Took a long time but I loved doing it. Probably about 8 hours total.
