I know, I’ve been on a long hiatus. Ever since I got back from Australia I felt the pressure to start finalizing things for the wedding. I guess you can say I was in a wedding rut. I became so frustrated with trying to please everyone to meet their expectations that I began to loose sight of why I was planning this wedding. It felt like I was planning a really big party for everyone else. Of course, with my Type A personality, I dove right back into wedding planning to check off the remaining boxes on my to do list. We’re down to the nitty gritty tasks like picking out songs, working on DIY projects and planning out the seating arrangements.
I enjoy being crafty, but at the same time it can be stressful. My DIY projects becoming a fail is always a fear of mine. I knew I wanted to make personalized wedding favors, but the task of making over 400 favors seemed daunting. After reading wedding blogs and browsing through Pinterest, I settled on making little wedding baggies to fill with treats.
I purchased a personalized stamp from Esty (All Things Ink by Exquisite Squid) and used gold paint to stamp all the bags. I have about 100 bags done…300 more to go. So far it’s been pretty painless to make. Just be sure to wipe down the stamp every now and then to prevent the paint from clumping. I’m satisfied with how they came out. Not every bag came out
perfect, but it adds a nice rustic, personalized touch.
