      Here is my candy sign from the Bridal Shower. I can't remember if I needed to download the font or not.

        Here is another project that I did for my Bridesmaid's gift. They are decoupaged flasks.

        I bought the flasks online for about $3 each (free shipping) and the glitter paper at Hobby Lobby. I trimmed the paper to fit the flask, coated the glitter side in clear varnish and let it dry, then coated the flask and the back of the paper, and applied. I held the ends together until it was faily set. I did add an extra coat all over later, especially to the edges and the ends of the paper. You could use any kind of paper for this. I then applied crystal sticker appliques, and coated again in varnish.

        The larger two were for my Bridesmaids, and the smaller ones for my other female guests, so they didn't feel left out. Here is what each girl received on wedding day, along with a card in my colors, handwritten to each girl, thanking them for coming and for their place in my life.

        The Bridesmaids also had a package:

        This is what was in the package: (I made these for my bridesmaids to wear on wedding day, as well as one for my daughter/flower girl. I have been making jewelry for a couple years, but these were very simple. They are all sterling silver and Swarovski crystal, with a handstamped initial.

          Here I got a free pair of VS undies and added a 99 cent iron on:

          I bought my daughter a dress from Hobby Lobby for a few dollars, and added an iron on:

          It was meant to wear on wedding day while getting ready, but never happened. :)

            Here are some of my finished painted shells. I used metallic acrylic paint and I lined my aisle with these as well as my tables at the reception.

            I did a DIY guest book- for the outside I hot glued on ribbon. I used a scrapbook from Hobby Lobby and added an engagement pic.

            It did end up a little wavy.

            I designed and printed pages for the inside. Each guest filled one out. I have to add, my fiance's brother (and groomsman) passed away unexpectedly 5 days after returning from our wedding trip. Most people did not get around to doing an entire page at the wedding, so it was fairly empty. Several days after his funeral, I found that he had done a page in the back that we had never noticed. It's one of our most treasured memories....

            I made it for us to add in pictures from the wedding later.

                  Once again I love EVERYTHING!!! You did an amazing job! Thanks for coming back and adding some picture of the final product. I am so happy for you both that you have the page in the guestbook from your brother-in-law to cherish forever, how touching!! Did you create the design for your guestbook from scratch? I am so torn on what to do for the guestbook

                    Sunshine,

                     

                    I just looked at several different ideas that I found around the internet and combined them into my own. It took some work, but it was pretty cost efficient considering the $75 ones I was looking at online!! :)

                     

                    I used favorite memory of the trip, favorite memory with the bride and groom, and a spot to write advice or draw a picture. The last spot I left open for a photo of each person from the night, which I still need to insert!
