:: Wedding Favours ::
I've been wanting to show you these happy, smile-worthy paper fasteners that were personalized by a bride and groom to thank their guests.
Both the bride and groom are christian ministry workers and the bible certainly is a key part of their lives. So it wasn't surprising that they chose to include the bible reference to the bible passage that was preached at their wedding as a key part of the final design. To tie in with their gorgeous wedding colors, they chose designs in sunshine yellow and shades of blue.
I thought you might like to know how they managed to hand-make all these paper fasteners. They made 300 wedding favors for their guests in all. Sounds like a lot but the bride tells me she was surprised at how quick it was to make them.
This is how she did it:
First, the bride asked a couple of girlfriends to help her with gluing the glass pebbles onto the paper. It took 5-6 girlfriends less than an hour to glue on the 300 glass pebbles.
Secondly, she organized for another group of friends to help her with cutting and sticking on the glass pebbles. Although she was apprehensive about asking, her friends turned out to be really happy to be involved in the wedding prep. So she arranged an afternoon where they met and quickly finished gluing them on. (Now they were meant to cut the glass pebbles out but being the ever-efficient bride, she had cut out all the glass pebbles with her groom-to-be one one morning.) Even the groom was surprised at how easy it was!
