We are going to do bookmarks and keychains. But not just any bookmark and not just any keychain. We have decided to cross stitch our own bookmarks and key chains. I picked up an actual bookmark template from Michael’s last night. 9″ x 1 7/8″. Now that seems incredibly long to me. So if I were to cut 3″ off would that be long enough for the bookmark and keychain?
i.e: bookmark- 6″ x 1 7/8″ Keychain- 3″ x 1 7/8″
Have you seen this done? What are your thoughts on this?
The initials will be on top while the date will go under.

I don’t have any advice for you, I just wanted to say wow, that’s a huge task! How many people are going to be at your wedding?

I think it is a cute idea but A LOT of work and I just want to give you a heads up that most people don’t want knick knacks with other peoples initial’s and wedding date on them.
Check out these previous threads here and here.
I don’t want you to spend a lot of time on something that people may not appreciate.

Wow, that sounds amazing. But I am a VERY.LAZY.PERSON. Good luck.

That is a wonderful idea, if not a lot of work ahead of you!
I do have to ask though, are you committed to including your monogram/date? Lots of polls on wedding websites suggest guests are less likely to use/take home something with someone else’s monogram on it.
Do you have a theme? Perhaps stitch something related to you theme on them, instead?
We ended up screen printing tote bags for our favors, but with a tree silhouette, as we had a rustic themed wedding.
Just a thought… love the idea though… good luck!

I wouldnt do anything with you names on it. I cant say that if someone gave me a keychain with their name on it I would be inclined to put it on my keys. I just dont want you to go through all that hard work for someone to throw it in the trash! A bookmark would be ok though!

yeah, just to be completely honest, I wouldn’t carry a keychain with someone else’s monogram or wedding date
