    Finally finished the womens favours!! took 2 coats of blackboard paint!

    My H2B got all the butterflies made in work (well we needed 50... they made about 130 lol)

    Then just sprayed with blackboard paint.... which I did end up with a full hand covered in paint... not the best look!! ha ha

    Ribbon was a pain to get through the holes, as we didnt make them big enough but all done!
    Then put some chalk in a little organza bag!

    just the mens to do now.... bottle opener keyrings, should be nice an easy lol.... nothing like leaving it all to the last minute!! :D

    Hi ,

    After posting this I never got time to reply with finishing off wedding bits and bobs and then finally the big day. Then away for a few days for our honeymoon. Then my contract running out and not being extended on my job (so now out of work and looking) I have been without a laptop! Finally am back online searching for a job and bored out of my mind.. lol

    Anyways im rambling on.......


    wedding went fab thanks few hicups (dress and mother in law).... will get round to doing a report and some pics soon.. have the discs of the pics but without having a laptop havent even looked at them yet!!

    Any ways.... Thanks these butterflies were made in my husbands work.. on a cnc machine. So i just printed out a butterfly cut it out, put holes in for the ribbon and they made them. They were made out of just MDF they sprayed a primer on for me... however not much so when it came to doing the blackboard paint i used a spray one which took about 3 tins and 2 coats on each side that was about 50 odd.... as well as spray painting my whole hand blackboard paint colour ... which isnt always good a few days before the wedding.. thankfully came off in time lol

    I do have some of these left some painted (not many) and about 56 unfinished. My mum has listed them on ebay in groups of 7 i believe, so if any one wants to look at these I will post the link for you. :)

    Hope everyones planning is coming along well :D
