    After seeing everyone else's DIY projects I figured I need to get on the ball! Here are some of my projects so far:

    Wedding Shoes:

    I bought some simple white wedges from JCrew when they were on sale for $12. I decided to add some style so I bought some blue capiz shells from a seller on Etsy and some white pearl-like beads from Michaels. The straps were wider than I pictured so I ended up with two rows of beads on each one, but I like how they turned out!

    Survival Kit chapsticks:

    After seeing Chelymo's chapsticks, I had to make some of my own! I bought the chapstick at the Dollar Tree (2 for $1) and measured the labels. Then I made a template using Microsoft Publisher and printed it out on sticker paper from Staples. I love them!

    Welcome Books:

    Again, I used Publisher to make a template. I included a letter to our guests, Schedule of Events, Resort Information like bars and restaurants and a map, Meet the Guests including where they're from and how they know my FI and I, and finally some Spanish Basics. The pictures are of the rough copy, I just wanted to see how it'd come together. I still have to buy a mini hole punch!
