30 before April 30 Project 4 Completed!

Monday, January 10, 2011

A list of 30 items to complete for your own wedding day is no laughing matter - and think of the other details! But when you gather three amazing minds on a single day, many things can happen. One is the party favor for my bridal shower hosted by my mom. She is an amazing woman but somethings, you just need to take upon yourself. So with the garden theme that I'm pushing her to recreate, a party favor of flower and vegetable seeds was the choice.

The tag design is my own with a little help from the Wedding Chicks and their custom designs. The talented Michelle was on hand to cut the fabric and I sliced the paper. A fold over the seed packet and a quick sew across the top finishes the favor. Everyone will go home with a new plant if they take the time to give it a little love to grow.
