A lil' DIY token of thanks!

I knew I always wanted to do something "different" when it came to gifts for our hostesses, wedding party and out of town guests but just wasn't quite sure what until two things occurred:

1. I realized that Sutter Home wine's logo (SH) is my future initials


2. I came across a gem of a website. (
*No-I am not being paid to blog about them. They just have great stuff. Period.

I put the two of them together and have the most precious little token of thanks to give my bridesmaids and shower hostesses!! These were so incredibly inexpensive (mayybbeee $2.50 each) so it was just a little "extra" I was able to throw in without breaking the bank!

Happy Thursday girls!! I can smell the weekend already!!!
