By the time you read this post, I will be out of the office and getting ready for my wedding. I hope you enjoy this post while I enjoy my honeymoon.
When it came time to start thinking about making wedding favors for our wedding, my fiancee and I thought for quite some time before we came up with what we wanted to do. We wanted something handmade and personal; something that would mean a lot to us and to our guests.
Last year for the Spring TNNA trade show, Schacht made little flowers from Zoom Loom squares and a little pin button.
We decided to personalize our flowers by using our initials and wedding date, and by adding a little magnet to the back to create a fridge magnet for our guests.
We used Melange from Blue Sky Alpacas in three colors that coordinated with our wedding colors. We broke out our Zoom Looms and started weaving the hours away.
"Are we done yet?"
Over 100 squares later, and a lot of help from the Schacht office staff, we were ready to assemble them.
I started by making each square into a flower, then attached the pin to the center of the flower, and glued a magnet to the back of each flower using a low-heat hot glue gun.
The greatest thing about this project is that it can be done in a relatively short amount of time, and you can customize the colors for your own wedding or event. (It also gets your loved ones weaving!)
