Ooh, okay good to know. Go buy some small boxes (I dunno, like 2″ x 6″ by 4″ or something like that) and fill with ring pops with a card on the top “proposing”! Inexpensive and cute! Edit: and um yeah mail them out. Just mail them “media mail” and tell the post office it’s CDs, it should be like $3 if that!

  I used publisher to make a fold up note with a “pull here” tag like children do in grade school. Every time the letter was unfolded more, more of the note showed little by little. I can turn the file Adobe and post it on google if it sounds interesting.

I love reading about all of these fun ideas!  I hope one of my bridesmaids gets married soon and I get asked in one of these creative ways:) Okay, this sounds like a lot of effort but it was really fun and EVERY SINGLE ONE of my bridesmaids has this on display on her mantle/dresser/kitchen counter months later.

 

I made little storybooks.  I got pretty paper and glittery stickers (so not really good quality crafts supplies…the kind of stuff little girls would use) and I wrote a poem with about 2 lines on each page.  It came to about 8 pages total.  To bind the books, I used a hole puncher and some ribbon.  They’re definitely not skilled-looking, but they were cheap and I wanted them to look innocent and playful.  And that’s exactly what was conveyed, because of course we all turned into little girls screaming and jumping up and down and gushing about the big day.

 

Here’s a couple of pictures!

The front cover read “A Love Story, by Julia.”  This is the first page.

Skipping the rest of the poem (the pictures aren’t that great) to give away the ending:

Can’t wait to hear what you decide on!

I chose my bridesmaids for the longest time and now that I have them:

You can make these at Michael’s. I got all the materials there and you just iron on the words bridesmaid on the tote bag and then for the cards, get deck of cardstock and just glue them together and the bottle cap magnets can be bought at Michael’s, I added photos of me and the bridesmaid…

 

I haven’t given it to them yet because I’m waiting for more to create! I got overly excited.

I also ordered from Etsy and it cost me a pretty penny because some were rushed and needed to be express mailed – but greencard as mentioned above wasnt really helpful and its been over a week and no card, with a minor channge  – wanted to take out some verbiage she was going to charge me upwards $11 for one card!!
