I need the input from some of you crafty peeps to help me write 4-8 fun fortunes for my fortune teller favors. Please post your ideas here or if possible, in the comment section of the post on my wedding blog at http://themeckleys.com/blog/2008/07/05/and-more-fun-stuff/.





Thanks so much!!

Maybe a little of both...I LOVE the idea of movie quotes! I'm a movie freak and have used movie quotes in other parts of wedding crafts. I cannot believe that never even crossed my mind!!

THANKS!!!

Well if you like movie quotes, you should like song titles....they lead to soo many options.

Another good idea! I'll probably end up with several different versions, which is totally fine. And might even be a better idea so people will want to read the others!

Thanks for the ideas!!

Couple of questions -
Are these going to be your favors?
Did you write the words on there or did you print them from a computer?
What are the options for each little fold? (I could see all the words on the outside, and 1 love, 3 dogs, white, pink and 2 people but not the rest.)
Ehh the fortunes I could come up with are lame like "You'll have a fantastic time at Laura and Andy's wedding" or if you have a lot of single people coming, "You'll meet the love of your life at Laura and Andy's wedding"... but then again, I'm lame haha.

lol - then I'm just as lame as you b/c those were a couple fortunes I thought of too!! :-) I printed them on the computer.

These won't be the *only* favors, I'm a freak for "making stuff" so we're doing a candy buffet with some personalized labels probably as the MAIN favor item, and I'll be doing out of town bags including custom label candles, hmmm, what else am I doing...? I'm thinking of doing "Kiss the Bride" lip balms too.

Anyway, this is what they say:

Outside:
Laura
Andy
Meckly
Wedding

Inside 1:
1 Love
2 People
3 Dogs
4 Ever

Inside 2: (wedding colors)
Black
White
Pink
Orange

Now that I've got all these fun ideas from everyone I'm going to do several versions so I can use all the fun quotes & phrases! Not sure how well they'll go over with the adults but I'm sure the kids will like them...even if they don't like/get the fortunes!  Tongue
