Hey all! I wanted to update you on all of the planning/applying! Since my last post I have officially applied for about 8 more open positions at various school districts, but no phone call yet. :(
I have been very busy with wedding plans however! :) I am very excited to show you what I have made for my amazing moms and bridesmaids!
This idea started out while my future mother-in-law and sister-in-law went with me to try on my selection of bridesmaid options. My future mother-in-law was carrying around some papers that I had given her about the wedding as well as a printout picture of the dress she might be getting. Me, being Ms. OCD and DYING to do a craft soon, got an idea!
I went to Wal-Mart, and purchased some folders in our wedding colors:
|Simple 3-prong folders in our wedding colors: teal and yellow|
I then went to my mom's work (and family owned/operated sign business) and printed out some vinyl lettering. This was a surprise for all the girls, so keeping my mom out of her own office was fun at times! :) I then took these letters home and applied them in the secrecy of my bedroom.
Before I post the final pictures, I want to apologize for the bad quality of pictures. The folders really are a lot more bright and true colored, but the camera and lighting I was using to take these pictures was not good!
|All of the folders I made!|
So, what do you think? I made the mom's folders in teal with white lettering. I made my MOH folder have teal with yellow lettering. Then, all the bridesmaids are yellow folders with teal lettering!
I then put 8 page protectors in each folder and stuck a "cover page" in the first page protector with our names, wedding date, and ceremony/reception location!
I am seriously thinking about selling these to other future brides. I am even in the process of making Groom/Groomsmen folders that will be given to them the week of the wedding, with bridal party contact information, schedules of the week and most importantly, the ceremony information. As for all my girls, they get them now to keep their dress order information in and any other wedding goodies I might find for them!
Please spread the word on these to any other future brides you think would like this for their wedding party. The folders come in TONS of colors and the vinyl comes in literally hundreds of colors in every shade! They definitely helps keep everyone organized - my favorite!! :)
