Finding fun and unique ways to personalize your big day is our specialty! Today we have a lovely DIY from the talented ladies of Smitten on Paper showing you how to put together a sweet ceremony kit and a ribbon wand everyone will love! Now whether you’re a DIY bride or not, there’s something in this for everyone. :)
Get your pencils together and draw hearts or the shape of your choice onto the eraser. No need to be perfect! Grab your x-acto knife and carefully (and slowly) cut away at the eraser until you have your shape. It’s nice to try different eraser sizes so you have a mixture. You can even leave the pencil as is for polka dots!
Ink the top of your eraser and start stamping your candy bags. You can get some of these kraft candy bags from our Paper Shop. Use a mix of shapes and sizes, you can even try monogram stamps.
Next, get your straws and ribbon together. We cut about 18″ for these wands and used 3 different colors.
Fold the ribbon in half, wrap around the top of straw and pull the ends of the ribbon through the loop formed at the top. Add a little bit of glue to secure them.
We love the colors of these! This DIY was inspired by our Vintage Banner invite … blues & golds are just so dreamy.
You can either create a mix of custom printed bags or stamped kraft bags – they look so cute either way. Place the ceremony bags on the chairs for your guests to pick up when they arrive or attach them to the back of a chair. Your guests can wave their wands in the air when you and your beau say I Do and I Do Too!
