wedding projects

In my quest to have a mostly DIY wedding- there are many projects that I have been collecting that I want to do. One is tissue flower napkin rings. I think these are so great! and seem relatively easy. Thanks to Martha- she has proved step by step instructions to make this project a breeze. I have ordered the tissue paper from papermart, (and it arrived the very next day) and hope to get started on these gems this weekend. What do you think- worth it- or way too much work?

Here are step by step instructions
1. Stack 4 sheets of tissue, cut a 10 by 5 inch rectangle going through all of the layers. Make 3/8 inch wide accordion folds.
2. Fold an 18 inch piece of floral wire in half, slip over center of tissue and twist to secure. Trim ends of tissue.
3. Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time
4. Bend wire into loop to fit around napkin and twist to secure
You can also do other floers and tissue paper bouquets, check out Marthas page for inspiration- enjoy!
