For my out of town totes, I needed to make quick and easy tags so the hotel would know who they were for. I was pressed for time, and didn’t feel like going out to buy something pre-made…but a quick peek into my craft cabinet led to the discovery of manilla tags. I had tons of leftover bits of wrapping paper in the right color scheme, so I broke out the spray glue and went to work. Be sure to use LOTS of newspaper to surround the area because spray glue gets everywhere. Just spray a light coat on the back of the tag, and press firmly onto the gift wrap, wallpaper, whatever you’re using. Let it set, then cut around the tags with an exacto knife, then hole punch the hole back, and you’re done! Quick, easy, CHEAP, and uses up all those little bits you might have lying around.

After slaving away for nights, the cake topper is finally complete. You’ll notice Kiki, my maid of honor, putting it all together, being a good friend and all. There are vintage flowers from Tinsel Trading, the fabric for my dress is ACTUAL fabric from my dress, Chad’s tux is velvet ribbon, and the green fabric is leftover from my vase cozies. You’ll maybe notice the dove on Chad’s shoulder and the rat peeking out from under my dress….its an inside joke that dates back to the day we got engaged…maybe one day I’ll tell it to you.
This site helped a lot with the construction, so check it out if you feel like making your own.

I was browsing around the sale section at Reprodepot last night and these Japanese felt buttons caught my eye! I bought a bunch for my coat, but could totally see these sewn onto a bouquet, or maybe the flower girls headband….

I’ll just come out and say it….I hate the Superbowl. Football and me just don’t get along…but it does give me an excuse to get some wedding stuff out of the way. Being an interior designer gives me access to a lot of gorgeous fabrics….I’m actually using a bunch of them for the wedding in my centerpieces….and I happened to have a remnant of one of my favorites to use for my ring pillow. So, while Chad watched the game…I broke out the sewing machine and got crackin. Ring pillows have got to be the easiest sewing project ever, and this one literally took me about 20 minutes from start to finish. If you’re interested in me posting some directions, let me know….but I think the process is pretty self-explanatory. Its a nice way to tie in your colors and personality.
