Diamondpooch's DIY thread....bound to be long :)

Recommended Posts

So, I finished a couple DIY projects. Yesterday I got my Keycard/Tip holders done. I bought the ID/Badge holders from Ebay along with the lanyards. I got 50 of each for $18. Pretty cheap. I printed the inserts on white 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock.

I don't know how to post a template link, but I borrowed mine from another BDW poster! Thanks!!!

Sorry the pics aren't that great!

I also finished my OOT tags. I printed the top part on white cardstock and glued (with a glue stick) them onto 3 x 3 squares of navy cardstock. I punched a hole in the corner with a 1/8" hole punch and threaded the ribbon through.

Finished my programs!!! I used all cardstock and cut them to my measured sizes with a guillotine. Such a time saver. If you are planning on cutting a large amount of paper/cardstock, splurge on one of these as they cut down time and also make crisp edges. The adhesive I used was a Dotto spool. I tried Zotts and also a glue stick and this Dotto thing worked awesome! It dispenses much like the white out that rolls out like tape, but it works fantastic! I ordered the fan sticks from ebay. Everything else came from Michaels. You may not be able to tell from the pics, but the background color is navy.

 

Here is the finished product leaning up against a candle.

I used the leftover materials to make my place cards. Not sure how much I like the handwritten names yet. I may switch it to stamped names. I've not written on all of them yet.

I decided I'm not using those place cards. Don't like them one bit. So, I ordered white finger starfish and I'm going to attach a name strip to the starfish with navy ribbon and place them all in a sand filled dish at the wedding so they will stand up straight. I'll post a pic of the starfish when I'm done with them.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
