And I think it turned out great!
What I’m going to do is handwrite a personal note on the back of the notecard in matching gold ink and then seal it in the envelope (it’s not large). Then punch a hole in the upper right hand corner of the envelope (w card inside) and attach some fuscia curling ribbon to the item/items I’m enclosing in the package to be sent to each bridesmaid like a tag!
I embossed the cards using translucent gold embossing powder and gold metallic ink for some “oomph”. They are really sparkly in real life and just are so cute! I’m sending the ones with the scalloped-edge to my bridesmaids, and the hot pink ones to the flower girl, junior bridesmaid, and to the mom of my ringbearer, who will also be singing that day to “propose” to them also (but the bm’s get the gifts!).

Those are adorable bellenga! I think the flower girl and junior bridesmaid will love them too! Maybe you could get them a little present too so they don’t feel left out?

Oh of course I”m getting them something. One’s my neice (the junior bridesmaid) and she’s getting her holiday present and that at the same time. Her gift is a 50 buck gift certificate to Sephora (her all time fave store). The flower girl is T’s daughter. We’re giving her some more American Girl stuff for Christmas and I’m getting her a flower girl outfit for her doll.

Oh and the ringbearer? I’m getting him a kite so he can fly it at the wedding or on the beach and have fun. We’re seeing them also over the holidays!

I’m just sending the note to my honor attendants though. I’m having 3.
The other people I didn’t think about saying i had gifts for b/c I’m seeing them soon. The bm’s (except for my bff who’s coming to visit in December and my sister) are the only ones who will get their whole package sent to them( the other 2 who live out of town and I’m not seeing for a few months).

Thanks everybody. I got a wild idea to do them last week as I found a little “something somethin’ ” out.
I figured I had best get on the ball with this kinda stuff!

Beautiful. You’re so creative. Where did you get the stamp?

Thanks so much. I think it’s gonna look good with the whole ensemble.
Here’s what they’ll get:
it will arrive in a hatbox (unless you’re 2 of the 4 bm’s that I’ll see in person). Inside the hatbox in a matching expresso color will be tissue paper of both pink and chartreuse and inside it they’ll find the letterpressed notecards and the apron. Attached with curling ribbon to the apron will be my bridesmaid proposal card I just finished diy’ing! (see other post).
That’s the plan stan!
I love embossing. I think its relaxing fun except the embossing heat tool can do a number on your nail polish if you’re not careful.
I got the card btw, at Michael’s. I also think I saw it at Paper Source too though.
