    OK Girls here is the description of my newest and first DIY project for the wedding. I will post pictures as soon as they are assembled.

    I bought those small wood boxes with a handle and clasp that you can find at craft stores (JoAnn's, Micheals Etc) and bought stamps that look like passport stamps as well as stamps that look like postage, and a passport. I covered the outside of the boxes in stamps.

    I found these small leather (faux I am sure) luggage tags with Letters on them so I bought one for each couple with their monogram - F = Ford, G=Goodwin. I am printing cardstock with the following (plus embelishments)

    Bryan & Toby
    October 27, 2007
    Cabo San Lucas MX
    Additional Info: (our website once I get it)

    and putting the cardstock in the luggage tag where you typically put your info.

    I printed our names on paper over and over and over again and put it through the paper shredder to make our own confetti strips.

    I am putting the luggage tags in the wooden boxes in tissue paper in our wedding colors and then surrounding the wooden boxes in the confetti and all of this will be in a cardboard box to mail to them...

    what do you think....i swear i will post pictures as soon as i have some....
    Bryan (DH) is Napolean Dynamite and his friend is a keg.
