JenGirl:  Omg. I knew anthropology was expensie, but $68 for a stick with a bottle tied to it?!

All your DIYs look amazing, btw! Your bottle on a stick looks a lot better than theirs. Haha.

allyfally:  My bottle tied to a stick costs $150.

But seriously, free tobacco sticks, free wine bottles/corks, dollar store tissue flowers and dowels. Super cheap!

ginae1255:  Thanks so much for the feedback! I only need to make 25 sets thankfully.. They’ll end up doubling as a photo frame when you turn it over and mount the standing legs. Fiance wanted either to send our guests a post-it note invitation or go all out to make something that our guests will keep.. so voila, we have this!<br />

The design, illustration, material sourcing and laser set up process took a long time (40-50+ hours) but now that it’s done I can finally start pumping these babies out.. Probably 2 hours each. We have a Destination Wedding so this is about as crafty as I can get without lugging tens of kgs half way across the world!

amy.d-y:  I didn’t buy them, I made them. It’s vellum paper and a flameless candle. I designed them on the computer.

Inspiration (BHLDN Dewed Vines hairpin $145 for 2)

Execution (~$55 for supplies and I have enough material to make about 5+ pins). I only need 2 so I’ll probably sell the others. Labour’s not too bad as long as I don’t make a mistake because the wire is fragile so once you twist it, unwinding it isn’t really an option.

I plan on replacing the navy flowers with a pink flower that resembles the flower in the inspiration pic. 

Sorry for the giant pics
