Two out of three of the ladies I’m asking live out of state, and I want to ask them all pretty early so they can save for travel and their dress. Well, that and I’m excited to ask them. I came up with an idea that’s really pretty simple, but time consuming.
First, I got several different colored papers from Michaels. Well, FIRST I designed a template for all the pieces I’d need to cut out, THEN I got the papers. Anyway. I cut each girl and myself out of paper and pieced them together like a paper doll. Here’s a shot of the process. Note the pieces to trace in the background and the miscelaneous paper scraps.
And here’s a couple shots once they were all pieced together [that’s a couple hours of work right there, haha].
Next, I printed out paper with the wording I liked, and a note to each girl on the back. After that, I glued each doll to the paper.
Here’s one of the personalized notes. I figure I don’t need to post all of them.
Ok, looks good? Not quite. This is a step I didn’t photograph. I bought some fake flowers from Michaels, also. I pulled two of each one off the stem, and glued them, along with a rhinestone in the center, to the girls like a bouquet. Here’s the end result.
And one close up for better detail.
Finally, I didn’t have envelopes to fit these [of course] so I whipped up a little template and made my own. It was a gruesome process, since I’m terrible with numbers. I finally got it though. Addressing their envelopes was a chance to put my practice to use. I’m absolutely terrible at cursive, so I’ve been practicing so I can address our save the dates, RSVPs, and invites. I didn’t want to put their adresses online, so I made a little mock-up using my name. Not too shabby, in my opinion.
All in all, a lot more work than I anticipated, but they also turned out better than I imagined. What do you ladies think? Will they like them?
