    Ok here is my first attempt at the Luminaries for my welcome dinner. My FI thinks I should either cut the bags down or move the design down more. What do you think?

    I think the picture should be bigger? Advice please! Thanks

      I think the design just needs to be lower, so it's easier to see in the candlelight. Also, I have seen luminaries where they "roll" the top of the bag down a couple of inches, so it looks shorter. You could do that instead of cutting it. Other than that, I think it looks great - cute design!

        I agree, they are really cute and would be perfect if the design was just a bit lower. :)

          Do you think it looks dumb with the velum showing?

            I agree too! If you move the design down you'll be able to see it better in the light of the candle.

              I think I liked them better smaller, but with the logo lowered. They are super cute!

                Wow! Nice job! I love them. Did you follow the instructions from the other post on luminaries? I have yet to try it...
                I think you should lower the design and maybe make it a size in between the 2 - a little bigger than the first and a little smaller than your big one. or just try it lowered first (kept small). THEY ARE GREAT!!

                  Natalie,
                  I'm not crazy about the Vellum.. I do like the smaller designs moved down. Have any girls had the bags printed?

                    Hmmm I actually like them bigger, with them by the pool would the smaller ones be too small where people wouldn't notice what's on them? I like the bigger ones because you will notice the design more.

                      I think I would like the bags cut down a little shorter and design a little smaller...jmo. They're really cute though Natalie- nice job!
