    So I think I'm finally done with DIY projects! At least I hope since I'm leaving in 5 days!

    First, as promised are the menus and matchbook labels. The menus were printed on white cardstock and then glued to the blue cardstock that I've used for everything else.

    The matchbooks were a little tricky. I had taken like 5 packs from a local restaurant called Fogo de Chao in Minneapolis. Of course they are bigger than normal matchbooks, so I couldn't use anyone else's template. This is what I ended up with and I love them!

    My next project was a ribbon flower to add to pin on to my purse. I used white 1.5" wired ribbon and followed this tutorial:

    And finally, I decided to get a 2nd pair of shoes. FI and I started taking dance lessons and I realized that flip flops weren't going to work if we were going to be doing ballroom. My feet kept slipping out! Anyways, I still wanted them to match, so I made a flower out of the beads for each shoe. I attached it to piece of fabric that is wrapped around the bridge of the shoe and then sewed on the bottom. I couldn't find shoe clips last minute! Again, I'm thrilled with how it turned out!

    Well that's everything. I've attached some templates, please enjoy!

          Thanks for sharing Melissa. I am trying to do my own menus and programs so seeing your menu and getting the template helps alot.

            Your stuff looks so good (I'm being redundant, I said this on your planning thread, but they are really nice). Great job. Congratulations and good luck!
