              just an fyi ladies – i'm a graphic designer so it's easy for me to create all this stuff. but EVERYONE has a creative side and i've seen sooo many diy projects in this forum that have inspired me as well!
              I love all of your projects!! I just started putting together drink umbrellas myself for possible escort cards. Do you have any idea what size your circles are? I have a 3" hole puncher, but it seems a bit small.

                    sorry for the late reply! i actually measured mine and it's just a little over 3" so your hole punch is perfect :) i have a few other ideas that i would love to post but i haven't had time and alot of the projects i've done have slightly changed. hope to post soon!

                      hi! here are a few more pieces that i've done:

                      CENTERPIECE
                      i changed my centerpieces last minute! i designed these candleholders using vellum paper and folded into rectangles. just printed my logo on 2 sides and table # on the other 2 sides. i'm using electric votive and pillar candles for safety reasons since the holders are made of paper (wouldn't want my projects to burn at the reception from real flames!). plus i heard real candle flames are blown out by wind when you have a beach reception. hopefully it stops raining in cancun soon and i'll still get my beach wedding (i leave in 2 days!). the best thing about these is that it barely takes up any luggage space; i'm packing the candleholders unfolded so it all just fits in a folder and i'll unfold them when i get to mexico. another great thing about this is the price. i already had vellum paper and just printed these at work! wood box was about $5, pack of 12 electric votive candles $8, electric pillar candle $7, red flowers $15 (bought about 3 bunches at michaels and was able to use it for all 5 centerpieces).

                      WELCOME CARD/FAVOR
                      oot bags were not in my budget and i didn't want to add another suitcase just for these. so i created this card that includes a welcome note, matrix of all my guests arrival/departure dates and times, and reminder of wedding day festivities. sinamay bag is full of my fiances favorite gummy bears.
