2 months to go and almost done with all of my DIY projects..(pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

The official 2 month countdown has begun and I am getting more excited by the minute. I've been busy finishing up on lots of DIY projects here is what I've completed so far....

 

Photo Share cards - from 123Print - $11.95 for 100 double sided (the other side is in Spanish).

Luggage Tags - I used Staples matte white double sided business cards. The laminating pouch was purchased from Pouch-n-coil for $4.95 for 100, the loops also from Pouch-n-coil $5.95 for 100 and found the laminating machine at BJ's for only $29.95. They all have different funny and sarcastic sayings on them and I decided to not use damask border for the guys, don't think they would like that hanging on their luggage. :)

White Fans and charm from Michael's - I think the fans were originally $18.99 for a box of 18 but they were on sale for $14.99, the charms were about $5.49 but I used the 40% coupon and the damask ribbon from JoAnne Fabrics was $3.50.

I also finished the bridesmaids (our daughters) flip flops that they will wear for the ceremony. I used the same supplies from the fans to do these so it didn't cost me anything more but the $2.50 for each pair from Old Navy. Navy.

Chapstick with our logo - used Office Depot glossy full sheet sticker paper. Put our logo on them and added the phrase "besame mucho" which is a song from Andrea Bocelli that I love - it means kiss me a lot. I had to cut each one individually but I think it was worth the work.

Weekend survival kits that I put together to include in our OOT bags. They include;

 

Hand sanitizer - purchased from Target .47 each

Sunscreen - purchased from Target .97 each

Chapstick - purchased from BJ's pack of 10 for $9.50

Bliss bodybutter - got from a friend who works at a W Hotel

 

I used white card stock and sandwich size ziplock bags (already had these supplies)....

 

It was pretty easy and quick to do.

I really loved this bouquet that I saw on Etsy but just could not see myself paying $115 for fake flowers. I decided to attempt on making it myself and I have to say I am really happy with the outcome.

I ordered a bouquet that was already made from save-on-crafts.com for $18.99 - this is what it looked like when it arrived.

I ordered 5 black ostrich feathers from them as well for $19.95, and the damask ribbon from etsy seller bowpeepbows for $5.00. I already had the tiffany blue ribbon that I had purchased at Michael's.

 

I removed all of the leaves, little flowers, and the rhinestone springs from the bouqet and started adding the feathers. I then took the damask ribbon and just wrapped it around the ribbon that was already there and added the tiffany blue ribbon. Final touches - used the rhinestones that I had taken off and just added a few to some of the roses and to the tiffany blue ribbon. It took me a little over an hour to get it just the way I wanted it! And I saved $72.00.

 

Here is the final product

What an amazing job! I really like the labels for the lip balm and your flowers are just gorgeous! They look even better than your inspiration pic, plus you saved $75- you must be really happy about that. Your wedding is going to be incredible with all of these nice touches.

Wow!! My wedding is one week after yours and I have a LOT of my projects left to do... so at this point I give myself 7-days to finish them all and catch up to you because I'm totally jealous you're all done!

 

I love your bouquet... I know what Etsy bouquet you're referring to and you could have told me it was the same one and I would have totally believed you, VERY talented!
