i wasn't going to make them at first too but i had leftover vellum from the luminaires so i figure why not. i was able to make 2 out of 1 sheet of 8.5x11 vellum.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your luminaries. I didn't even think about bringing those with me. They can lay flat in the suitcase and be taped together once you get there, taking up very little room.Perfect and they will look so nice!!!!!

embarrest.gif thanks! they're super easy to make and personalize, i've been trying a few things to keep it from blowing away.

 

EXACTLY! i figure I'll bring some double sided tape with me (plus it's handy in case you need to stick other things).

 

i thought about rolling them into a mail tube thingie, so they don't get squished because any creases in vellum are very obvious but only if i find one that doesn't cost $10 otherwise, into the suitcase with some cardboard it will go.

photoshare cards - printed them on cardstock purchased from staples. then spent an evening cutting them with my friskars trimmer - ugh, i tried to cut them with the big ccutter at work and they turned out all crooked since the cutter's guides have all rubbed off.

luggage tags - i didn't want to fuss with personalizing everyone's info and figure they wouldn't use it again, so i did up some business cards on vistaprint and put "Can You Read This? Then you're too close to my bag" on the front, with the resort's address. Then put a label on the back with the person's name on it. i used the laminator at work with heat seal luggage tags i bought from staples.

engagement photos album for parents - both our parents are not good with computers and hate clicking on a screen. so after reading http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wiki/how-to-make-a-wedding-photo-book i started to follow photobook girl's blog. i've always been into scrapbooking so a photobook is like scrapbooking of the digital-kind. on her blog she posted an area for "free" photobooks http://www.photobookgirl.com/blog/free-photo-books-online-gotta-love-it/. i went with MyPublisher's offer $20 gift card to new customers and purchased 2 softcover 5x7 books and just paid for shipping. Super easy program to use and shipping was really fast too. I think they came out great. I am thinking I might do my own BD shoot album on my own.

Pashmina Tags - I haven't received them, but have prepared the template already. I hate waiting for online items to arrive, lol. Not very patient. I did the tags in Illustrator, and attached the PDF, but also attached a powerpoint version in case anyone needs a starting point to work from.

thanks! i ordered them off of ebay - BUT THEY HAVEN'T ARRIVED YET. I'm acutally quite annoyed at them since i ordered mid-feb but they haven't arrived. selleer said they have re-shipped them last week after i messaged them. i figure if they don't arrive in time I will either pick some up from this store near my house or just forget about them all together.
 

i noticed your in New York, a lot of ladies on BDW ordered theirs from  http://www.pioneergroup27.com/  i believe they're
