A Wedding on the Beach

Please forgive the background! I was so anxious to use my new photobox, I totally forgot to put the background in there...UGH!

This project is a wedding day survival kit I made for bridal shower gift. The lovely couple have planned a wedding on the beach in June. Doesn't it sound divine?

I took a new 1 gallon paint can (Lowes) and removed the handles. My DH then drilled larger holes where the old handles were attached. The rope is knotted on the inside of the can. I used the Luxury DP from DCDW and attached it with Scor-Tape. The rope and shells were attached using hot glue.

I printed their names and the date with my computer then cut it out with the Label die from Spellbinders. Inside, is a scroll that describes the contents of the can plus a poem I wrote. There is everything in there from a First Aid kit to deodorant, to ...CHOCOLATE...about 40 items. They're in travel sizes so they can be taken on the honeymoon as well.

Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your comments. You never know when I may pick someone from a random post for some blog candy! (wink)

Blessings and Happy Stamping,

Charlene
