You may remember that the Equally Lovely Denise, Mother of the Bride (and The Lovely Laura) made a huge box of gorgeous glass beaded bracelets a few weeks ago to give to all the ladies at the forthcoming nuptials as wedding favours …. well .... after that we were stumped as to how to present/wrap them …. aghhhhh, what more wedding fiddlefart do I hear you cry???
I gave it an awful lot of thought, (most of it lazy, looking for the easy optition), but in the end I knew the inevitable had to happen and I would have to dig out my old Silhouette machine that hasn’t seen the light of day for well over two years ….. as I knew that I had the perfect template to make the favour boxes …. http://www.silhouetteonlinestore.com/?page=home
….. only trouble was, I had completely forgotten how to use the blessed thing ….. however, I persevered … and the template, altered to the size I needed, cut perfectly first time!
I glued the bags/boxes together, pinked across the top and punched two holes to thread the ribbon through, attaching a charm to the bow as I tied it, simples ….. and at minimum cost …. to wit one pack of 140gsm white card for 99p from The Works! Marc had given me the charms as a present a while back and the ribbon is surplus to the Lovely Laura’s wedding requirements …. Each favour box will have a mix match of one of the ten rainbow coloured ribbons and a brass or silver charm ….. done and dusted! Bring on those wedding bells!!
