Favors for the Royal Wedding
I borrowed this idea for wedding favors and made them for a group of us who are "attending" William and Kate's Royal Wedding via TV at an ungodly hour, at least in the East.
These spool favors were based on creations by Becky Shander and were featured in the Apr/May/June 2011 issue of Somerset Life. Becky talks about how she made her Altered Spool Place Cards with things she had around the house, and kept them "quiet" using only delicate colors.
In order to use what I had on hand, I replaced her beaded dangles and flag nametages with bouquets of cloth flowers and nametags attached with little note holders.
Each spool is wrapped with lace or rick rack which is secured in the back with a pearl-topped pin.
A little something to take home after all of the wedding festivities are over. Nice.
