It’s 5.21am here in Dubai and I have not slept, I suffer from insomnia, but never this bad. Since returning from the UK I just cannot sleep, so I have decided to stay awake all night and go to the office at 7am, exhaust myself and try and fall asleep by 10-11am tonight.
Anyway, to keep my insomnia company, Iv’e decided to make a start on my wedding DIY. This week I have been to Daiso (Dubai Mall) and Creative Minds (Al Barsha) to pick up some supplies. My first project is making my wedding confetti. Below is an image I found for inspiration on etsy.com.
After considering buying some from Etsy, but finding out how much buying them +shipping to the UAE would cost, I thought I’d just make it myself, no way am I going to spend $65 just for 15 bags of confetti! I’m not making a bag per person, I’m simply placing bags on the last chairs nearest to the isle, so the people closest to us can throw, they can even share the confetti if others want to get involved, plenty to go around
Anyway, tomorrow I will post the step by step guide, but below is what I have managed so far, nine more to go! Each confetti bag I am making is unique and different, and I have incorporated my wedding colours into the mix. They dont look as top notch as some of the bags I have seen, but thet will do 🙂 I am getting a friend to write calligraphy on the labels “SHOWER US WITH LOVE”.
