Default Yikes..2 bridal showers...gift ideas PLEASE..

At work, we are having a bridal shower for two of our staff. Does anyone have gift ideas for me, that are papercraft in nature, that will work on a tight budget? I'd really appreciate any ideas you'd have for me!

You could always do thank you cards the bride could use for after her showers/ after the wedding!

I agree with both the suggestions on cards...the Monogram idea is especialy nice because it's so personal I think.

Maybe decorate one of those tin boxes to match (they are only about $4 I think) and then they have something to keep even after the cards are used up...or maybe to store their wedding cards in...etc.

You could make them tile coasters, too. There are tons of these in the gallery and they would make a great wedding/shower gift!

Name frame with the couples new last name.

I always do monogram stationary as well. It usually goes over very well.

Packs of thank-you cards would be much appreciated. Also, you could make cute little "advice" books out of chipboard, then have party guests write their advice for a happy marriage.

If you do thank you cards, it is nice to add pre addressed return labels that you can make on the computer and a roll (or sheet, to save $) of postage stamps.

You could also do one of those bobunny name books that say LOVE, FAMILY, etc. They are adorable decorated with places for the new bride to put her pictures.

Great ideas posted. I also started to make a 6x6 scrapbook for the bride/groom using the Simply Scrappin' Kits from SU!
