A long, long time ago our Save the Dates went out to our guests. Soon after, Mama Seashell got a flood of phone calls and word from friends and family that they’d received our magnets in the mail. (And of course, heard that everyone was so excited for the Seashell wedding.) After a few weeks we also deduced that a few people hadn’t received their Save the Dates. Oh no!
First, don’t even get me started on my anxiety about our actual invitations getting lost in the mail. Those suckers aren’t going to be cheap! Second, where had they gone? That whole “lost in the mail” idea wasn’t making me too happy. And third, what to do?
Fortunately I had extra gold envelopes and magnets. I figured I could Sharpie on (in pretty letters of course) the addresses and throw them in the mail. However, the sheen of the envelopes made for a poor result. I searched my desk.
What do we have here? Cute little circle labels that have nothing to do with our color scheme? Ah, heck these people are technically getting their second Save the Date. Beggars can’t be choosers.
And matching return address labels that I’d already had from a previous project? Not too shabby!
The final result:
It’s no wrap around label with perfectly matching custom stamp, but for a last minute “make these things look half decent” project I think I did alright!
Did you have any unanticipated DIY projects? Do things “getting lost in the mail” hopelessly freak you out too?
