      good evening, skygirl!!!

      yep..food coloring should be fine..just follow the instructions on the food coloring box..

       

      keep in mind that the coloring will dry differently..also, i think martha has a glittery turquoise color to add some bling...spray painting real starfish can be tricky..they tend to look washed out and don't absorb the paint well...i prefer paint on the fake ones only...

       

      good luck, skygirl...sounds like a super cute idea...please post pics so we can all be inspired.

       

      until next time, happy planning!!!

            Good morning mrstgun! Was wondering when you cut a ribbon ( like your little happily ever after ribbon on the garter) what do you do to the edge so that the threading doesn't start unwinding ???

             

            Thanks Mich¨le xo

              hi, michcraw!

               

              cut the ribbon on an angle with SUPER sharp scissors...i don't use my 'ribbon cutting' scissors on anything but ribbon...that way they stay sharp...

               

              or you can fold them and cut down for a nice clean double edge...

               

              good luck!!  and as always, until next time, HAPPY PLANNING!!

              ps...my starfish couple tied the knot.    (you can see the angle cut and the double edge cut on the ribbon in the pic)
