:: centerpiece ::
inspiration :: instead of using river rocks as a filler i'm going to use beach sand so it's one less thing to bring to mexico and i'll save money! i might buy a few artificial flowers or purchase single stems at a florist in mexico.
i bought these wooden planters at ikea which are about $5 each. i might tie a ribbon around it. i'm not sure if i should paint them white or if i should leave them raw for a more natural, beachy feel. not sure yet. thoughts?
since real sea fans won't pass through customs i'm going to buy artificial ones and maybe paint them or leave as is since red is one of wedding colors.
:: favors ::
set of magnets :: clear top tin canister from specialtybottle.com $0.63 each. clear glass marbles from michael's (sale price $1/bag). magnets from michael's about $5? for pack of 50. designed and printed the graphics myself on laser print paper.
:: swizzle sticks ::
used bamboo skewer sticks that i already have at home. used wraphia for top that i have at home too! designed and printed graphics myself on laser paper.
:: escort cards ::
this is just a mockup so it got a little roughed up

I've made the magnets before, really great craft to do while watching an old movie. I've also seen them sell at a store here for 4 for $12!!!
Here are the instructions I used.
not martha — to make: marble magnets
To dress up the back/hide the paper try some sparkle glue.
I love this DIY section. So many crafty ladies on here, watch out Martha Stewart!
