did I tell you about the gifts i gave my maids and other female members of the wedding party? probably not, since i wanted it to be a secret...but i was just bursting to show them to somebody since i was REALLY pleased with how they turned out.
in most weddings i've been in i've gotten jewelry to wear on the day of... but since i wanted my friends to dress like themselves for the ceremony, this wouldn't work. and i wanted to make sure that i gave them something that said, 'you are important to me, i made this just for you.'
so i made them each a silhouette.
the best part was that i got to think about each of my girlfriends and our friendship as i made them and remember why i'd asked them to be a part of the day and how they were special to me.
let me know if you want to know how i did it... but basically it's a piece of cake with a good photo, a sharp exacto-knife and a steady hand.
here's to hoping the girls liked them as much as i did and will know how much they mean to me!
