I saw these for the first time at a wedding last summer and thought they were so cute. They were done totally differently and it wasn't until the past month or two I've been seeing people make these a lot. They are the little tissue packs for the ceremony. Once again, a DIY project that is so not necessary but is also such a cute detail, cheap, AND EASY.
The most recent ones I saw were of Bee's here . She did such a great job and am using her same idea for mine. Here is Bee's finished project that was on her blog:
Cute right? Here are the things you need to accomplish this DIY project:
- Glassine Envelopes (I purchased 100 on eBay for $6.50 and that was including shipping)
- Pocket tissue packs
- Ribbon (you don't have to use it, just for some extra color)
- Labels to seal envelopes ("For Tears of Joy", etc.)
These are the size of the envelopes I purchased and I put two tissues in each envelope. The tissues are a perfect fit:
It seriously was as easy as 1... 2... 3...
To stuff fifty of them it took me maybe 20 minutes or so. I have all of the ribbon pre-cut at 7 inches to wrap around and stick under the edges of the label. Once I make the label I will follow the rest of the tutorial that was on Bee's blog. Remember, you don't have to make a ton of them because not everyone will take one and it will most likely be women or friends that like "wedding souveniers". What? Am I the only one that takes EVERYTHING possible at a wedding? Haha
What was the easiest DIY project you've encountered so far?
