After spending 50+ hours prepping, crafting, creating, stressing, and mentally cursing... the wedding was here. One of the things I wanted to do from the start, after finding out my mom and I were in charge of the Wedding Luncheon, was the Wedding Wishing Tree. This project was one of the most labor intensive I did for the wedding.
It doesn't seem like it would take very long, but here is a break down to create the 225+ Wishing Tree Tags
*Hand cut the pearly gold paper to the proper 2"x 4.25" size
*Use a decorative corner rounder on all 4 sides (that equals 900+ Carpal Tunnel inducing punches)
*Hand punch the ribbon slot
*Stamp the word HAPPY on each tag
*Stamp the word TOGETHER on each tag
*Attempt to draw 5 straight lines on each tag
*Thread ribbon through each tag and tie a knot on the way to and from the Temple Ceremony (because I am cool like that... I get it from my dad;)
Here is the sign I used for the Wishing Tree. I found some ideas from different sites online, as to what I wanted it to say.
It will be neat to see how many tags they get after their Open House in Idaho this weekend. I had Andrew choose the phrase he wanted on the tags, and Andrew and Whitney really are so Happy Together.
