One of the best things about being a crafter during wedding planning, is having left over supplies from past projects. I love making cards and if I see a really great sale at Paper-Source, I'll pick things up, even if I'm not sure what to do with it, because I know eventually I'll get good use out of it.
Our rehearsal dinner invites were great proof of this. Awhile back, Paper-Source had a huge sale on sparkly red rick rack cards. At the time I was dreaming of a lobster bake rehearsal dinner or using them for Christmas cards, so I bought them without a clear vision in mind.
Fast forward a year and I needed rehearsal invitation materials quick and I turned to my paper drawer and had these waiting, along with left over envelopes and 4 bar white paper. I decided to include some ribbon left over from our oot bags to jazz them up a bit.
They don't really go with the rest of our paper products, but I didn't have to spend any more money to make them, so I was satisfied.
Did you create any wedding projects using materials you already had or leftover from other projects?
