Aisle Runner Completed!

The aisle runner is finally finished after hours of tedious painting!

I realized that I forgot to post the pictures of the finished invitations. They took forever but I'm glad I decided to do them myself. I gave myself a little credit by putting a 'handmade by' stamp on the back. The little rhinestones took forever and some fell off in the mail. The post office was not supposed to put them through the machine which is why I spent 98 cents per stamp but they did anyway. I blame the rhinestone mishap on them!

Aisle Runner

I bought 20 yards of muslin and my mom helped me hem the edges. It turned out really nice. I then blew up a monogram at Kinko's for a few bucks. I traced it onto the runner about 10 ft. from one end. I started to paint it black. It's very tedious! I think it'll turn out nice though.

Damask Website is a great site. It has lots of different boxes/bags in damask prints. I am liking the damask cello bags for the candy buffet but am deciding whether it is worth the money.
