Wedding Gifts

Last week I showed you the horrible job Bed Bath & Beyond did of wrapping Steven's niece's bridal shower gift. I ripped it all off and wrapped it myself. Isn't this so much better?

Within an 8-day period, I have 2 bridal showers and a wedding. I made a card to go with each gift. I used colors that were prevalent in each bride's registry just because I thought it would be a nice touch to make cards in colors I know the brides like.

The cards are very basic, but the ribbons dress them up a bit. They came together quickly, which is good because I've been pressed for time! I've been making some things to help save money on gifts. More on that tomorrow!

Wow! Two showers and a wedding, all in just over a week? Good for you, making the cards. That sounds like an expensive week! Plus, I can tell you from the card you sent me, your homemade cards are beautiful and look expensive. You use really nice paper!

Awww, thanks, Beth!

Yeah, the multiple wedding thing is pricey! For Steven's niece I bought off the registry and spent quite a bit more since she's family. The others I'm saving a bit on. I'm posting on that tomorrow. I'm all about looking like I've spent a lot!
