Bridesmaids Gift Ideas | Inspirations & Creations I may be a bit biased, but I think my bridesmaids scored some sweet SWAG for being a part of our big day :) One thing I knew I wanted to do for sure was to make them something… because everyone just loves handmade goodies right?!? I saw this awesome diy doily bag on Design*Sponge. {image via Design*Sponge} After reading through the full tutorial on Ashley Ann Photography’s blog I got to work on making one for each of my bridesmaids! It took me a few trial/error bags but I eventually got the hang of it (the more spray adhesive the better!) For the initials I just printed off a letter in the size/font I wanted…carefully cut it out and then used the stencil that was left over to paint on each initial. The next thing I got for each of the girls was a pair of gray J Crew flip-flops (to match their J Crew BM dresses of course) to wear at the reception. {above 3 photos via author’s personal collection} Then I figured I should probably get them something pretty to wear and remember the day by.
