Hello there! Only 5 days til the big day! I wanted to share the gifts we're giving to the bridesmaids. I thought the Tag A Bags and Boxes would make fun packaging and would work for the whole wedding party. We ran into a little snag, but worked it out. It would have been much simpler if I had found a candle to fit into the boxes before I ordered them, but with a little reconstruction they turned out fine.

Emily got the girls a gift certificate for a manicure or pedicure and the brand new Envelope Punch Board worked perfectly to make coordinating envelopes. It's can make envelopes in 26-I think, different sizes!

I bundled and saved 15% by adding the Accessory Kits to go with the bags/boxes. So much fun mixing and matching everything!

I used the Morning Post Alphabet to monogram each girl's gift. I cut out the letters and popped them up with Dimensionals.

The colors in the kits are Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Gumball Green, Smoky Slate and Tangerine Tango. I used the DSP from the Paper Stacks except for the Gumball Green design which is from Birthday Basics.

The Accessory Kit includes the tags, baker;s twine and clothespins. I added the little flowers made with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and added some Basic Rhinestones to the centers.

I tied the tags around the candle lids using Bermuda Bay 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. Then I wrapped the entire box with Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon.

I used the stamp set Lots of Thanks for the sentiment.

I filled the bottom of the boxes with truffles and shredded paper.

You probably don't need to see all the boxes, but in case you want to duplicate 6 different gifts, I've done the thinking for you:)

I'll work on the flower girls gifts tomorrow and be back to share those with you as well.

I'm still waiting on the groomsmen gifts, but once I get them I'll show you the bags I made for them.

And last but not least...

Make sure to stop back for the other gift ideas and updates on the wedding. Thanks so much for stopping by!
