I just got engaged a couple of months ago, and so far my fiance and I are planning an October wedding...three years away.  Tongue That's when I'll be finished with grad school and he will be finished with his bachelor's, and even though it's extremely early my mom and I are actively planning things, and we need lots of help/sanity support. So I figured I'd rope my sister and a couple of roommates from college into this, but I wanted to ask them in a memorable way. I saw very very cute "will you be my bridesmaid?" cards on etsy, and I figured I could do something similar, while stubbornly doing it myself. A few hours later...



   Nothing too impressive, I know, but I forgot how to use spray adhesive and killed quite a few brain cells in the process. I also decided to make little birdsnest necklaces, and further injured myself with wire and pliers.

  

    This one wound up being tossed because I left the bar code showing...but you can see the inside, and that's what's important.

   So I know they're not great, but I think my sister and friends will like them, and if they don't, I had fun making them. I want to make a lot of things for the wedding, (hopefully better executed than these,) but it was my first craft for the wedding, and it made me squeal.

   Thanks for looking!

I think they are really sweet!  :-)  If they don't like them the best part is...it's YOUR wedding BUT I bet they will love them.  :-)

Yes! I was trying to post a picture but my computer is being quite silly.   Angry

   Here is the inside of the card with the necklaces in place!
