We’ve got another family wedding approaching soon, and that means BRIDAL SHOWER! We haven’t even met Tyson yet, but Nicole’s family has told us all about him, and it sounds like they are a match made in heaven……a perfect pair!
So we were inspired to make a shower gift that reflects a lot of “Perfect Pairs.” With a little help from Pinterest and a trip to Target and Bed, Bath & Beyond, we were ready to shower Nicole with all kinds of gifts that go together…just like her and Tyson.
First, we bought a tote…we chose “pear” green, and printed “Perfect Pairs…inspired by Nicole and Tyson” on a full sheet label to apply to the front of the tote.
We used glossy laser labels to print all of the stick-on labels pairs. To match the green tote and Nicole’s red kitchen, we chose the Kiss Kiss Collection from Studio Flergs as our clip art graphics.
Next…we started matching and wrapping up our Perfect Pairs, tying ribbons, bagging in cellophane, and applying the labels….. Some of our perfect pairs were pancakes and syrup, cake and frosting…
Milk (flavor beads) and cookies, Hugs and Kisses……
…..chips and clips, peanut butter and jelly…..
….pen and paper (a menu planning and grocery shopping pad), macaroni & cheese….
….salt and pepper (in snazzy grinder/mill), spoons and fork….
….cheese and crackers (aka Ritz Bits!), oil and vinegar…
and a paring knife and cutting board. I also made this sign to go with it…I loved the message when I saw it several years ago, and thought it made a perfect accompaniment to the Perfect Pairs basket.
I painted a 6″ x 12″ wood a charcoal black and let it dry.
I typed the sign using “Old Press” font (slightly eroded and distressed, but still legible). I made the background charcoal and the lettering off white, then trimmed it to within 1/16″ of the size of the wood piece and mod podged it to the wood.
Here’s the tote, all loaded up and ready for the shower! Nicole and Tyson….we are excited for you and really believe you are the PERFECT PAIR!
