My mother and sister designed our wedding programs and used a twig of cypress from the trees surrounding my parents home on each program – isn’t that so neat?! Kudos to Karen for coming up with the idea. We made way too many (especially considering our ceremony + reception was the same venue so guests didn’t take the programs to cars like most weddings) and I knew I had to get creative – I couldn’t just let these beauties sit here until they were eventually tossed.
I also had a few extra save the dates, designed by Rock Paper Dove.
We’ve all seen these ornaments on Pinterest — and they’re just so stinkin’ cute that I had to make some for both of our moms too!
Step Two: Roll the strip around your finger – giving it some shape so it creates a prettier visual in the ornament. Drop it in the ornament ball.
That’s it! Easy peezy. I used the ribbon that secured the cypress twig to the program to tie around the top of the ornament and secure a sparkly snowflake, also purchased at the craft store.
I’m still working on the part two…stay tuned! Thanks for reading – XO –
