We all know the proper gift for a wedding is money, in hopes of helping the new bride and groom pay for their big day that they graciously invited you to attend.

It easy to pick up a card, write out a check or stop by the ATM and get some cash. But as a guest to an upcoming wedding for one lovely lady that has always been the person to crack me up, she is super out going and just really loves life to the fullest, I knew a plan card wasn't going to be enough.

I did some research on money origami, practiced a few different ones and after cashing out at the bank with a bunch of $5 and $10, I came up with this fun flower bouquet display to wrap up in a pretty box with a bow to give to the new Bride and Groom.

Who doesnt love a guy who can bring you
flowers to show his love!
I am sure at some point she will be cursing, with all the twist ties that hold the flowers together but I know her well enough to know she will be laughing her a** off the whole time.
Happy Wedding Day to Gen and Tim!!! 09/23/12

WE MOVED!! Cards

My sister and future Brother-in-Law just moved into their new house in Ellington, CT. She asked that I create a note card to let friends and family know that they have officially changed their address.

Katie wanted to use a moving box as an idea to create the note card with the new address. In my mind, wasn't sure what I was going to do to make that all work out.

So with a few sheets of label paper to print duct tape on and use it to seal the 'box' shut and print out the Fragile sticker, some brown recycle cardstock and some creativity. Ta-Da!!

We came up with a one-of a kind card design that her family and friends will love.

Outside of the box, peel back the duct-tape printed label.

Inside the box, ghosted pots and pans behind the address

Katie and Matt decided to include an invitation for some of the address change recipients to a House Warming Party, what a better way to work with the Moving Box theme...than a Moving To-Do List. Printed on a simple piece of cardstock, placed inside the box...what a fun way to announce the big move!

Fun way to invite your family and friends to a party!
