AdvertisemenWhat a great DIY project to make for your out-of-town wedding guests! Created by designer Suann Song of SIMPLESONG Design for The Bride's Guide and photographed by Kate Headley, the project and the photos were too cute not to share with you. But check out the full post here.
I started with a simple wood box and lined it with Martha Stewart paper, both found at my local Michael's craft store. I then gathered things I thought would be useful and enjoyable for out-of-town guests, including a weekend schedule and list of local attractions, Metro passes, a Metro map, French macarons made by a local pastry chef, and M&M's in the pink and copper wedding color theme. Everything was pulled together with glassine or cellophane bags and custom labels (see template below). When completed, the finished box not only looks elegant, but only costs about $15!
While the project may be a little pricey for a ton of out-of-town guests, it would be a great welcome for a smaller guest list or if you only have a few out-of-towners. Next week I'll do a DIY welcome bag post that is very budget friendly as a second option.
