Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying your week. I can't believe we are more than halfway through Monday already...
Well, the wedding is over, and it was a success.
Everything went off as it was planned, and the bride and groom and their families loved the favors.
As I said last week, it was nice for me that Misty chose the two easiest favors in the entire box of samples. She chose the green striped paper, and wanted the little roses, so she was quite pleased!
Here are the finished favors, front and back:
These were covered Hershey's miniature candies. I covered them first with the striped papers, then with the photo strip. I made a piece for the back to help stabilize the candies, and also to put Misty and Carl's thank you note.
These are the little pockets that we paper crafters love to make. Started with a square, and made a few folds. Adhered the Ghirardelli candy with a piece of 1" scor-tape. Punched a hole through the front, put the flower stem in. Secured it on the inside with small piece of packing tape, and tied the ribbon around the flower. Added the photo with scor-tape.
This is what I did with a whole lotta leftover candies. I just did this on an address label with Printmaster, and wrapped.
Well, that's it, folks! Spent a few minutes this morning with the vampire ladies at the clinic having some six month checkup labs done, spent HOURS trying to find something in my closet that fits, then shopping this whole (teensy) town for something that fits...ugh. Have a reception for my DH to go to tonight, and I don't much like wearing 'real clothes' anymore!
Have a great night, and I'll be back tomorrow with something pretty, and the next day with a surprise!
Hugs and blessings,
Food for thought: Why do we spend so much time buying things we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people we don't like?
