      while cleaning up, i realized I had forgotten about a bag with a couple of other items. (it turns out, i am a DIY-a-holic). LOL i don't know what I'm going to do with myself after the wedding when I have not reason to DIY like crazy!

       

      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 e-photos albumalbum

       

      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.

        Everything looks fantastic! I especially love the AHR card box & the luminaries!

              Wow Rose you are aaamazing!! I love all your DIYs!!!

               

              I made very similar luminarias! I saw them on etsy and decided I could make them for cheaper! hehe

              Are you concerned about them blowing over the in wind? I'm trying to think of a way to make them more stable! Either a highball glass or a wineglass inside should work well. Or cheap clear plastic cups with sand in the bottom :)

                thanks heather!

                 

                i know! much cheaper to DIY  =)  but so easy to get addicted!

                 

                i have been trying to think of a way to keep them from blowing away. i thought about making some sort of bottom for them, but glue and tape, etc. will show through....hmmm a glass or a cup inside would be a good idea. going hit up a dollar giant or something and see what sort of glass, tealight holder or plastic cup might work.  thanks!

                 

                ....another day closer!
