Ah so, yesterday I went on a little field trip to Michaels. I was looking for items to jazz up my invitations a bit with belly bands and maybe some other frill. How about it turned into a two hour deliberation fest! I went down every single aisle at least twice. I walk a fine line between classic and kitsch and yesterday I’m very sure I nearly crossed over to kitsch. After being talked away from extra bright floral paper for belly bands by Tresvant, I ended up with some nice 65lb weight paper in a hot pink that matched the accents on our invite. Then I went a lil cuckoo and just had to buy a decorative punch because I obviously think I have way more time than I do to get these invites out…lol! Here’s my cart at Michaels though. Notice the flower…guess who decided to make herself a lil frill for her hair?! I also picked up a great mason jar because I’m about to go mason jar crazy on my reception tables.
Anyway, today I spent my lunch break cutting up my belly bands and punching out some frill. I’m so super excited about how great this is all going to looked and maybe a little too self-satisfied.
Take a look at my test run. Isn’t this beautiful from the front? Well take a look at the back? FAIL! I can’t even be mad…looks like I’m either going to just belly band the RSVP card/envelope or scrap this whole retarded project. LALALALALALA. It’s less than 60 days til my wedding yall! :0(
Let’s end on a positive note though…here’s my easy peasy possible hair flower. All I did was pick a frilly flower that I liked, take it apart and glue it back together without using the filler so it’d be flat. I added a some beading I already had at home (most likely will make it more ornate) and then glued it to the comb. The glue that I used wasn’t the best, I’m going to have to reglue the comb but again…positivity…here’s my hair flower (maybe). I know I can’t be the only one to have Project FAILs all over the place…I hope.
