DIY | Out of Town Bags

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Tools:

  • Design on Microsoft Word
  • Round corner punch
  • Fiskars rotary paper trimmer
  • Sticker paper from Staples
  • Bags
  • Tissue paper
  • Goodies
  • Raffia

Prettttyyyy self-explanatory. I designed the sticker in Microsoft Word, printed them on sticker paper, cut them out with the trimmer, and then punched the corners. I stuck them on the bags and then filled the bags with goodies along with a poem he wrote for the guests and tied them up with the raffia.

I made the labels and he did the rest. Go teamwork!

Favors

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

Our favors were not 100% DIY. We lucked out and Donny’s mom found cute little favor boxes and had our names printed on them in Vietnam.

I had the ladies came over one day to assemble them. They had to first fold the flat boxes.

Then, Donny and the girls stuffed the boxes with Ferreo Rocher chocolates and Andes Mints wrapped in lavender tissue. They tied the boxes up with lavender organza ribbon.
