More DIY: Petal & Layered Programs

Once upon a time, a brand shiny new Micheal's Crafts opened it's doors in a land not so far far away...

Strolling through the aisles, I can across a some products that I've received numerous requests for, Petal Fan Programs and Layered Programs. In the past I've tried to steer clear of taking on these projects, they are amazingly time consuming to create from scratch and as you can imagine, the more components to an item and the longer it takes to cut, print and assemble the more expensive it becomes.

DIY Petal Fan Programs

Once again, Gartner Studios to save the day! They have partnered with Brides Magazine to come up with an exclusive line of print at home wedding accessories, not just invites, but wedding programs, chair signs, favor boxes, even letterpressed (looking) place cards sold exclusively at Micheal's. Usually, I'm not a huge fan of craft store wedding products, to much painted plastic and tulle for me, but I think Gartner really hit this mark this time. Their designs are modern and sophisticated, including everything from whimsical soft pink dots to elegant black damask designs (p.s. you'll be seeing much more damask in the coming months). It's an inexpensive, or should I say, less expensive, way to add all of those extra details to your wedding without having to take out a second mortgage.

Some others fun things from the collection:
