...especially when you have a cute 'tears of joy' packet to use! I was undecided about whether I'd add this project to my list or not until I was wandering through the aisles of Hobby Lobby with my mom and found damask tissues. And they were in the wedding section, meaning they were 50% off. I'm pretty sure it was a sign. I picked up like 7 or 8 packs and a couple aisles later found the perfect little packages for them:
(Coincidentally also 50% off!)
Each pack had 10 tissues, so with the help of BM S, I put 3 tissues in each packet. They were just a bit too long for the packet, but we just folded them over a bit at the top - No one will even notice! I designed some cute labels for them and printed them on a sheet of label sticker paper. It ended up looking like this:
And less than an hour later, I had this:
I ended up with about 25 packets for 300 guests. I'm debating if I should make more, not because I think that many people will be overcome with emotion at my wedding, but because I have a feeling my more sentimental friends and relatives will take one just to keep. And I know my mom and I both want one to keep too. Maybe I should double the amount?
If you made tears of joy packets, how many did you make in relation to the number of guests you're expecting? If you're already married, how many were left over? Or did you run out?
