so far in our wedding invitation saga we have:

but wait, there's more!

i realized that it would be a good idea to direct guests once more to our wedding website. i decided the best way to do this would be with a tag that had the website on it. using powerpoint and our signature font i came up with a quick template. 

I printed this off on craft paper and sliced it up at the local copy shop, leaving me with 100 informative, but boring, tags.

back at home I used a leaf motif stamp on the blank side.

then I trimmed the sides,

punched a whole at the top,

and affixed a leaf to the unstamped side above the website using my spray, stick, and tap method.

then came time for the ribbon decision. at first I thought about using some twine we had on hand to save myself a trip but decided it was too rustic.

so I went to one of my favorite east bay fabric stores: stonemountain and daughter. boy did they have options! after some time i narrowed it down to four choices:

after some serious contemplation i ended up with the second one and purchased one roll or 50 yards. once home i cut the ribbon into 11 inch lengths and had victor thread it through the tags.

he did an excellent job.

seriously phenomenal. I should marry this boy for his ribbon threading abilities alone.

next up: the finishing touches!
