I offered to make the favors. "Cool" my husband said... "something to keep your mind occupied and away from contemplating another redecorate!" Which translates to... Whew... I don't have to help! :)
So off to JoAnn Fabrics for supplies: rubber stamp, ink, faux rose petals, paint, heart charms, swarovski craft crystals, wired ribbon, glitter! The glassine bags I bought on-line as I couldn't find them anywhere (if anyone knows a retailer, please let me know).
I first tried stamping the bags with ink but the ink bled a bit and and didn't stay wet enough for the glitter to adhere so I moved on to stamping with craft paint and bingo...glitter galore! I then glued three swarovski crystals to the bodice for extra bling.
I punched two holes into the front of the bag, threaded the pink wire ribbon through and tied it in a not. Next (after clipping off the jump rings) I glued on the double heart charms.
I stamped and glitter the faux rose petals - most with "Merci" and some with a crown.
I scalloped the edges of wedding tissue paper and then tucked in a 10" round of pink tulle along with a Merci stamped petal.
For a sweet treat, I dropped in a hand full of hershey kisses.
Seeing as though it's her favorite color....Gayle, I'm sure, will be "tickled pink"!
