Am I speaking your language yet??
Bags? Monograms? Pinterest?
Yep, I thought so!
Sooo... since our wedding is now over, I can share all of my Pinterest projects with y'all! YAAY! Watch out Saw It. Pinned It. Did It.
When deciding on gifts that I wanted to get my bridesmaids, I wanted it to be something they would get use out of after the wedding & something special & meaningful from me.
*Side note - the original site is in Polish so, I winged it!*
What You'll Need:
1. Iron each bag flat along with the handles. Once all bags are ironed, place your doily & stencil in the bottom corner of the bag ensuring the doily gives enough room for the stencil to fit evenly.
2. Once the doily is in place paint the outside to make the outer pattern. Be sure not have too much paint on your brush as you don't want it to bleed other places on the bag or through the doily.
I obviously had not discovered the "iron bag before you begin painting" idea
3. Repeat the same process with the opposite side of the doily, on the opposite side of the bag. Let all of the paint dry & then you have bags for...
6 bridesmaids, 2 aunts, 1 future mother-in-law & a sweet flower girl!
VOILA!!! Saw It. Pinned It. & DID IT!
To add to my bridesmaids gifts I picked out these adorable burlap koozies from Ginnie Macs Etsy Shop.
Nicole was great to work with & the turn around time was very quick! Check out her shop for some great, inexpensive, personalized gifts!
Finishing out the bridesmaid gifts, I ordered all of them matching necklace & earring sets from Alexandrea's Jewels Etsy Shop.
Maria was also wonderful to work with & turn around time was very quick as well! These necklace & earrings were the perfect touch to the girls outfits & I'm so happy that they can be worn for more than just our wedding! Win win in my book!
Hope these ideas help get your brain movin' when it comes to different gift ideas for your bridesmaids or any other special people in your life!
