Since it was so COLD and RAINY this weekend I decided that it was time to get some of my DIY projects done. I knew that when we got engaged that I wanted to send out save-the-dates (STD's) because I have a few out of town guests. Having something unique and eye catching was also at the top of my list, so I knew that when I saw Cyd's Bookmark-the-Dates that they were definitely something that I had to make (Thanks for the inspirations Cyd!). These little things were very time consuming but the end product was well worth my labor of love. I will also be including an informational car with our website information so that guests can keep up with wedding plans. So here they are, for full instructions be sure to check out Cyd's blog:
Next I made our card box. It turned out BEAUTIFUL! I purchased the hat boxes from a local chocolate shop, they were a little pricey but it didn't matter because I knew that they were exactly what I was looking for. I cut a whole in the two boxes and hot glued them together and added the ribbon detail along with some swarovski crystals to give it a little bling. I printed the "cards" paper on Pearl Stardream Paper and rounded the edges and slit lines in the paper for the ribbon to pass through.
