I first picked whom I was going to ask.... then looked through my albums and made a copy of the best/funniest/most memorable photo of me and them that I was planning on putting in a frame.
Then I went to Micheal's and bought:
9 wooden picture frames - $1 each!!
9 wooden "FRIEND" blocks - $1 each
1 bottle of Purple Tempera Paint - $3
1 jar of teal sparkles/glitter - $3
1 mixed bag of sponge brushes - $2
1 bottle of wood glue - $3
I also went to staples and bought 9 purple folders - 10cents each!.
I then went onto Microsoft Word and typed up a letter individually to each of them with all the mushy stuff of how much their friendship means to me and how I want them to be a part of the most memorable time in my life.
I printed out the letter - along with a Top 10 list of "Why they should be my Bridesmaids" see attached - and put in the folder.
I then painted the frames purple - all 9 of them took less then 45 minutes - and they dry really quick.
Then I sprayed them with Aerosol Hairspray and quickly sprinkled the glitter on them. (do each 1 by 1, the hairspray sets quickly)
I then took Gorilla wooden glue and glued on the "FRIENDS" wooden block and let it dry .
They were all finished within 2.5 hours and I think they look great!!
TIP: cover the table with newspaper, and definately sit in front of a tv or put some music on!!
I then put everything in a bubble wrap envelop and mailed them to my girls ....
they were soo excited and so touched and thought it was soo creative!!!
Here are some pics:
