Wedding Projects

Okay, folks!!!! Here are some wedding project posts. I'm so excited about doing stuff like this. I totally get my creative from my Momma. I am so happy when I'm thinking about doing stuff and then actually seeing it come to fruition. One of the projects that I've been working on (and still working on) are these little packets of tissues that are called "Tears of Joy" packets. These are for the guests at the wedding and the tears that they shed in complete joy at the sight of these two people getting married and the obvious love they have each for other!!!! Well, maybe they won't be doing that, but it's a fun project for me to do. =)

I first saw these packets on Bee and Patrick's website, which you can find here. I also purchased a monogram design from Invitations by Emily and I knew that I wanted to use on anything I could. Soooooooooooooooooooo, I purchased some glassine envelopes, got my travel-size kleenexes, then figured out how I could use the monogram, and created the bad boys seen at the top of this post.

How cool are those 'Tears of Joy' packets?!?! The stickers on the top are one of the coolest that I thought of! I sized the monogram down to 30% and then arranged 12 of them on white cardstock, printed them off, ran them through the Xyron sticker maker (coolest thing ever!), and then cut them into neat squares, and then peeled them off and stuck them on. How's that for easy? Plus, they fit with our color scheme and it was a project that I could do right now.
