Moss Menus!

Kisha asked me to create some moss-backed menus for Christine & Josh's wedding reception. I love a good challenge, and was so pleased with the final product. 

Each menu has a layer of natural dried moss with a double layered metallic menu attached on top. These are about 4" x 6" and fit right on top of the charger plates. 

The moss gives these a nice dimension:

Small double layered place cards were hole punched to be attached to a decorative board with pins.

Congratulations once again to Christine and Josh!

Here's what we came up with -- light green metallic pocket fold with cream metallic cards, featuring a green design and brown writing.
