It was a quandry how to present our cd favours at both of our receptions, in an appealing, yet crafty and elegant way. Here's what I came up with for each of our receptions.

First, the wedding and Chicago reception on 7/7/07, had a pink/green/brown cherry blossom theme:
I used scrapbook paper, punches, ribbon, thank you charms, some round stickers, and had stamps made with our name and wedding date on them. We made 25 of these:








Then, for our Michigan reception, 8/4/07, we had an aquatic blues and green theme. I ran the gammit of greens and blues and did some stamping on paper, added tags with computer printed labels, and slipped them into slimline cases. Made 50 of these:

















And here's our track listing. All these songs have some sort of meaning to my husband and I, together, as a couple.

I think everybody else did too, because between the two receptions we didn't even have ONE left over! It was a bit of pain in the ass to sit and burn so many cds. But, the crafting part was all fun!

Thank you. We have so many other handmade aspects that I don't even have pictures of yet. I can't wait to see pictures of the rest of the Mich reception!
