We had some goodies to give to our dear guests. They had all travelled from the other side of the world (like MS and I) to attend our wedding! We are so grateful that they were there to make our day extra extra special. So it was a MUST that I put effort into making the gift presentable.
PART FOUR – BOMBONNIERE ENVELOPES
I had a stash of cameo print paper. They went nicely with the actual cameos I used for the table number cards. I also had ribbon buckles and stick-on diamantes ready! And square envelopes I bought…yes you guess it right, 15 years ago, again. Same shop, same stash. Cristina Re
Printed names onto grids onto opalescent paper, double-sided tape the back and cut out…I can do this in my sleep now.
Grey ribbon and square buckle for the gentlemen; White ribbon and round buckle for the ladies.
Diamante-time! Pink-lilac-silver for ladies, and blue-green-silver for gentlemen.
These lay relatively flat, so transporting them to Rome wasn’t too bad. Although I had to be careful not to compress them, as the thickness of the gift inside and the buckle on the outside can cause creases.
So, the problem with not being physically there to set up the tables and to make sure the papercraft was ok, was ~ the buckles can move position, like this one…
…Or creases not smoothed out, like this one.
…but I think no one but me cared :P
For the photos, we also went to Capitoline Hill and other places too.
