Bridal Party "Swag" Boxes

Well, hello there! I am excited about my first official "real" post. :) The previous posts have simply been "re-posts" from my personal blog. I am very excited about this new venture that I am taking on...and I hope you will love it, too!

So, you know from my previous post that my sister was getting married. Well, the Big Day has now come and gone. It was a beuatiful weekend up at Tenaya Lodge near Yosemite.

As the matron of honor, I decided that I wanted to put together a fun little box of "swag"...or goodies for the morning of the wedding. Here is what I started with:
- rhinestone tank tops
- striped pajama pants
- personalized tumblers
- mini bottles of champagne
-lint rollers
- nail file
- hand sanitizer
- bandaids
 I made the tank tops with the help of my Silhouette and hot-fix rhinestones.
I also used my Silhouette to make these adorable tumblers...the perfect cup for our mimosas!

I got larger gift boxes from Michaels and gift shred from The Dollar Tree. I used small, clear, take-out boxes from Michaels to hold the travil-sized goodies.
*I also got individual cartons of orange juice that I brought with me...I didn't want to put them in the gift boxes because they wouldn't be refrigerated.*

Then I wrapped some burlap around the box, hot glued a flower on top, along with a wooden tag...and here is the final product...
And here is a cute pic of us girls in our tank tops!
