DIY Project - Bird's Nest Favors
October 31, 2008

So sorry about all of the technical difficulties yesterday...what a mess! But, we are back in full force today, with fun DIY projects that will definitely leave you inspired. The first is simple and pretty, a lovely favor for any wedding!



Mini Bird's Nests

Jordan Almonds

4-bar Flat Cards in Butter from Paper Source

Hole Punch

Blue Ribbon

Tulle, cut in large squares

Bird Stamp and Thank You Stamp

Brown and Green Ink


1. Buy mini bird's nests from Beau-coup (3 sets of 12 for a total of about $35).

2. Filled them with 5 baby blue jordan almonds to look like robin's eggs (I got the Almonds off The Knot wedding shop, with regular shipping they are a total of about $20 for two bags or about 200 almonds).

3. Wrap them in tulle (I bought mine at a fabric store, 3 yards at $1.99/yard).

4. Using blue ribbon, (mine was from Paper Source in "bluebell" for about $4 for 10 yards) tie the tulle together.

5. Cut your 4-bar cards into 4, then stamp them with the green birds and brown thank you.

6. Punch a hold in the corner, then tie the ribbon through. Voila!
