    Ok so my first major DIY project after the invitations are the starfish escort tags. I am trying to explain this idea to my FI and my dad so they can help, but i cannot find the pics on here that inspired me to begin with. I would like to print the names along with table number on the card stock, hole punch it and tie to the starfish. Then the starfish will stand up in a sand box. Does anyone have any advice for how to make these awesome? I really need an example pic of the sandbox so I can show my dad. He does not have any clue what i am saying so he doesnt know what to build. Thanks!

            These pics are awesome. I do like how the starfish standup in the sand better. I wouldn't want the first ppl that get there to mess it all up. I feel they have to stand on their own so the guest can pull their starfish out without displacing the others.

              i think these look really sharp!  what a neat idea!  how did the starfish travel to your wedding site?  did they make it there in one piece?  i think they look adorable in the sand.  what a cheap way to set up table placers for your wedding day.  the little tags and ribbons add that extra special touch to the sandbox and starfish.  :)

                I do love the idea. If I can pull it off I will be sooo freakin excited. Well they are not for the actual wedding. I plan on using this for the AHR for almost 200 ppl next month. But Here is what I am thinking so far..... My dad is going to make the tray to custom fit a nice dresser that sits right at the front door. Im going to try to match the fabric with the color of my sash (like a deep red)  for the tray and the ribbon. I do plan on using sand but my FI won't let me bring that back from Jamaica : ( so I'm just getting it from home depot. The starfish I found on Ebay. Alot did come broken and i had to superglue them. I don't know if i really suggest doing this for DW. I got a really nice card stock to do the tags and a hole punch that looks like a wave that will span the top of the tag. I just about have table assignments done so I will post  some pics when I have some assembled!

                  I am so excited! I finally figured out how to get the pics from phone to computer : )

                  The way that the escort tags turned out could not be any better! I was stressed out for a minute if I was going to be able to get them done or not, but once I started I finished over 100 in two days (most in one night). My dad finished the tray for them and I love that too. I found a cool looking piece of wood in his garage I liked for the sides and the bottom is just plywood from home depot.

                  I ordered the fish net from save-on-crafts.com. I think I might wrap it around the sides once the tray is filled with sand. I feel an amazing sense of accomplishment
