I still have to put a down payment for the photographer, look for a dress, think about decorations.... welcome gifts.... ahh soo much work ahead

wow, you got the invites already made? I am just finishing up my StD! We have our venue but no room block yet ... waiting to hear back from them. I;ve been dress shopping twice so far and two more stores this weekend ... and I've phone-interviewed a bunch of photographers so now we have to pick one!! Def have to start thinking about decorations, flowers etc ...

The lady at the PO said "wow these are really nicely packaged" 

 

I mentioned they were my STD and we had a fun little convo about what I made.

 

I told her my FI hates the address labels I made because the PO would hate them... she said they were cute!  Then put ugly stickers on the boxes... Glad I took a pic before I left!!  

 

Pics up next - one moment please : ) hahah

awesome job making them and getting them out there!

The note that I included - it's double sided so each box got one card.

In the box they went. . .

Wrapped the boxes in bubble wrap

Then wrapped them in brown paper - last minute decided to stamp them with " <3 handle with care <3"  it looked better on the piece of paper I did it on first... the bubble wrap made it challangeing - but I went with it anyways.  I then used packing tape to tape every surface so that the paper wouldn't get torn in shipping.

Finally, I taped on the address labels : )

 

 

 

(btw -  the addresses on the labels I made up so I could post a picture on the internet - the info from my TA is correct if anyone has a need for one )

You are killing me....I feel like we are soooo not crafty after looking at these! (Actually I'm NOT crafty! LOL) These are amazing and your guests will love them!
