Make Your Own Label

I got the amazing idea to make my own labels for my wedding from two different places.

First, I knew I wanted to use bubbles for our send-off from leaving the reception. I was searching through The Knot, and this is what I stumbled upon.

Cute, huh?

Then, I realized I didn't want to have to spend all of the extra money on labels and for someone to design one for me. That's why I used Darby's tutorial.

Then, I decided I would make my own. Then, I saw that I could take her tutorial one step further. I could explain how to make those circles just the right size, so you can punch them out with a handy dandy....

Circle puncher outer?

Yep...I bought it from JoAnne's Craft Store. Okay, so it's technically not called a circle puncher outer. It's really a Fiskars X-Large Squeeze Punch.

I put my skills to work, made 3-0-0 labels, punched them all out, and made this....

Aren't they cute?

It is not perfect by any means. Do not blame me for your troubles. Please let me know if you have find any problems though, so they can be fixed immediately.
