Shifting the focus to some Wedding related fun. Y’all let me know how much Wedding deets you want to hear. I try not to make it the main focus but it is slowly creeping up that is for sure!
I wanted to come up with a sweet way of asking my girlfriends (and sister!) if they would honor me in standing by my side for my wedding. I was perusing through Baublebar one day and these knot necklaces caught me eye and like all things creative with me away I went with my vision.
Alright let me start by telling everyone I am not a crafty person, like at all. I have really good vision but sometimes my execution falls a little short. Like I would probably hot glue my hands together. My poor little in my sorority all those big little gifts…..I told her can’t I just take her out or buy her a cute outfit instead? Her paddle actually came out astonishing well (probably because my big took over and assigned me to making snacks and refilling the wine).
Here is my super easy DIY tutorial.
I had an idea that I really wanted to do after I saw these necklaces.
I wanted to formally ask my girls and I wanted to use these necklaces to do it. I was going to ask them to help me “tie the knot” <– see what I did there? The necklaces are in a knot. I have one of these and I seriously wear it on repeat. The rose gold ones particularly caught my eye. They kept on selling out but finally I was able to order enough.
The next thing I did was find thick 5 by 7inch stock card. You know my struggles with Michaels employees so I ordered it off Etsy.
I got the stock card so I could write some cute sayings on it.
I did each line on photoshop so I could move each line around and use different fonts. I then printed each one individually on the stock card. Cut a tiny hole (actually pierced it with a knife because I couldn’t find a hold puncher) at the top of the card and with tweezers pulled the ribbon through tying it in a bow. I wrapped each necklace and tied it with the ribbon (I ran out at the end shhhhhh that is why some are knotted and some are bows).
I’m not going to lie y’all I was a little nervous asking them. I feel like so many people are “wedding out”. With all the expectations of Pinterest and blogs etc. However, everyone of my girls were so genuinely excited and thanked me for asking them. I can’t wait to have these fabulous girls by my side!
Alright what do y’all think? Would you say yes with my sweet gift? I told you it was super easy! No hot glue guns just some ribbon, stock card, printer and some major patience! All these images can be pinned for future use…..just saying ;-) xoxoxo
