Hi Folks,
My sister-in-law gets married next week and a few weeks ago we hosted a bridal shower/hen night for her in a local hotel. The theme was pink & black - naughty or nice. I had the exciting job of decorating the venue and co-ordinating gifts and games etc. In traditional bridal shower fashion everyone in attendance received a goody bag which i made using the template Sarah from Sarahs little snippets gave me.This bag was made using 2 sheets of a4 black card This was embellished quickly with pink & white pearlised card cut into strips. The wording was printed on using Lucinda Handwriting. The little image is from a set of stamps by Smirk, stamped with staz-on black ink and coloured in using whispers brush pens. The scalloped circle is a woodware punch. 3d foam pads were used to attach the image to the bag and pink organza ribbon was used for the handles.
Lots of little goodies were popped inside for the attendees and proved a lot of fun on the night.
I had to make a larger bag however to accommodate all the essential items for the bride to be this required two sheets of a3 card. To decorate this bag i used a large strip of pink pearlised card and using my cricut cut out the letters "bride to be" in black card and attahed them with foam pads. I dont have a picture for this sadly.
They were fun to make! (Just as well as I had 13 to do!)
Thanks for looking
