Bridal Shower Favor, Hawaiian Style

Hello blog friends!
Kristie here today from
Today I'd like to show you a cute bridal
shower favor idea from "Veils and Vengeance"
  In this Wedding Planner Mystery 
Adrielle Pyper plans a wedding in beautiful Hawaii.
Chapter 10 begins with a fun bridal shower favor.
"Using ribbon, tie a bottle of finger nail polish to 
a pair of flip-flops with a personalized note
from the bride.
Example:  I'd flip without friends like you.
Thanks from the bottom of my toes!"
Here is my example to show you how cute 
this idea is.
I used 3 different fabric flowers and held them together
with a large brad.  You can find a wide variety of brads
in your local craft stores.
There are a many choices for flowers.
You can purchase them at a craft store, packages specifically
for craft projects.  Or you can purchase stems of flowers and
take them apart.  Depending on the type of flower, color and size
you want to use, you can purchase them at your local
craft or discount stores.
Once you have assembled your flowers, they can
be adhered to the flip flops with strong adhesive
or thread.  Just be sure that they will be comfortable
for the recipient.  Example: don't use wire or a rough
thread like jute.
The tag I made was simple.
I printed out the sentiment on white paper from my
computer, cut it down and adhered it to a piece of card stock,
then I added a small flower with an adhesive crystal
in the center.
I happened to have a little "Thank You" charm and added
that to the ribbon tied around the nail polish.
These types of charms can usually be found in packets in
the bridal section of your craft store at a very reasonable price.
I added the tag to the ribbon with a piece of thread and it was
done.  Very easy.
I did all my components in purples, but you could use 
whatever colors you'd like to coordinate with the 
wedding colors.
Here are some flower examples that I made with 
other colors and types of flowers.
These are a much smaller flower, you could add one
to the flip-flops or a few.
It's your favor, so do what you like.
I think these make an adorable favor or thank you
gift for a shower or for the brides attendants.
How cute would they be for a beach wedding?!?!
I've been to a few weddings where the bride and her 
attendants change from their shoes to flip-flops
after the ceremony, it would be cute to have
matching flip-flops for the wedding party.
There are lots of possibilities, use your imagination
and make them however you like.

Thanks for stopping by today,
I hope you like Adrielle's cute flip-flop and
nail polish idea.
