~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
Do any of your selected DIY's make you wanna stab them in the jugular???? I mean, don't get me wrong.. I looooooove crafty stuff.. and honestly, I love posting stuff and seeing that others like it... the satisfaction that something I made...looks good! It's a great feeling! but
OHHHH EMMM GEEEE
I WANT TO STAB MY FAVOR BOXES IN THE JUGULAR!!!!!!!!!!!!
They are the biggest pain in my ass I have ever experienced in my life!!! They're cute! I love their cuteness... but the path I have to take to get them there...bah! royaly ticks me off!!!
I bought 2 boxes of 100 white square favor boxes from Michael's. I'm using a stamp that I bought sometime last year that I based my whole wedding off of.
Where do I start... finding the right ink pad was a b**** and a half! They either weren't black... they were like grayish, or smudged or splattered... So I finally found one that is perfect... but it is hard like a rock!!!! So I have to really use strength to get the ink on the pad... you can see the table shaking from me using so much pressure! lol So the muscles on the sides of my boobs hurt! awesome! lol Then, it's such a big stamp that I can't use it like a normal stamp. I have to ink it, then lay it down and rub the box on the stamp. Oh and in order from me to rub the box on the stamp, I have to make sure to fold the box by surface so that it doesn't make a hot mess and get a part of the next side, and to avoid double stamping and overlapping! Theeeeen that's just the box!
I take green paper that I had left over from my save the dates and wrap around. But since it's 105# paper, I have to be careful to crease it at each edge. Then wrap ribbon around it with glue. And I still have to make the candy to put in it and the labels. Seriously.. for something no one is going to care about.
I've got like 115 or so stamped. About 1/4 of those have the green and blk ribbon, and I need about 160 completed. woe is me...lol
Here's me doing one.. just the stamping.. I've gotten fast but my arms and hands start to hurt and it gets slower and slower.. and there are always mess ups that stamp all uneven and life just happens and I get interupted.... but check this out:
So what's your DIY that you're like.. omg, what the freakin hell was I thinking??????
