Purple Picnic

Here is another little idea I did for Project Wedding. I was just trying to show how cheap and easily you can brand a wedding. The designs on the bags were just printed directly on the bags with my desktop printer (put it through the envelope feed). Everything else was just printed on label paper. Go here for more pictures and directions.

    What an amazingly adorable idea! I love it. :)

    Pray tell what printer you have, because adorable things such as this never turn out so lovely on my printer at home. The always end up with gross black ink smudges, or get caught in the feeder and become all crumpled. I think I need to invest in a printer that you can brand a wedding with.

    You can also put tracing paper through your printer and use it to wrap things up. It's so fun to have special tissue paper for gifts, sandwiches and such.

    That is fantastic! I had no idea you could print directly onto bags! This opens up a whole world of possibilities! Beautiful, as always!

    Oh my goodness…darling! And I can do this too on my desktop? I've got to give label paper a try. This is putting me over the edge…

    p.s. on Thursday night for Enrichment I'm serving each person an individual picnic dinner in white gable boxes. If only they were to be as cute as these :)

  • Alya says:

    Fantastic and amaaazing idea. You always seem to outdo yourself every single time :)

    By the way, I've got a pair of pearl earrings to give away on my blog. Come check them out :)

  • jen jafarzadeh says:

    I love the concept behind this Jordan — so sweet to see an affordable way to do some fancy labels and packaging! any thoughts on favorite printers? I'm in the market for a new printer/scanner. My free HP printer that came with my Macbook a few years ago isn't cutting it.

  • Bri says:

    Wow, nice work!

  • jessica says:

    I love this! I love the consistency with the color, but the mix-matched patterns and designs. The branding makes the food look even better. Love it!

  • Chris says:

    Very charming!

  • Katie says:

    I think I'm going to have to try this out just for a super stylish picnic sometime, thanks!
