So my Bridesmaids & I took it upon ourselves to make the paper bag lanterns for my wedding and I think what we came up with was great, so i had to share.

 

We bought a pack of white paper bags for the luminaries and I bought gold doilies to follow Marthas method (Lacy Luminarias) but it did not work out like we had envisioned. I wish i had taken a picture, because they really didn't look 1/2 as nice as those!

 

Thankfully I also bought this confetti for the table which i got from micheals (using the 40% of coupon of course).

So my friend suggested we use the little flower confetti inside the bags... and VOILA here is the result!

I bought the votives/candles off Cudge.net - Product Detail which were a bargain and are AMAZING! (i tested and one lasted for 14 hours!)

We also then used the little flowers to make our placecard holders so they came out to be a spectacular purchase!

Those look so great!! My FI spent all of Happy Gilmore last night making the ones using Martha's method and they look fantastic. I tried to make one and it came out crappy. He has the creative crafty gene....I don't. He also made the hanging orchids. He complained the whole time, but they are done!

So funny, perhaps i should have given the task to a man to do instead of a group of crafty ladies! So glad it worked out for you!!!
