Paris: Advice on Love-Guest Sign In and Banner

 I'll be posting lots of details from the Paris themed shower we threw two weeks ago, but here are some of the paper products.  I made the above banner using book pages I inked the edges of with pink ink.  I mounted them on black paper, and added a crepe paper ruffle, then tied them together with tulle.  You can see our work zone that day, so....lots more details to come.  On each letter, I tried to add a different detail to give it color. 
A got an Eiffel tower stamp and some pink sequins. 
 I made a magazine flower thingie for d....
 O was pinned with an old earring I found. 
 R got some bedazzled pink flowers.
 E got a scrap of lace. 
I also bought an Eiffel tower stand, and made little cards we bound together in a little book for the bride to keep from all over us with advice on love.
 I decorated each page with Eiffel tower stamps, and this french script stamp I have.
  I still have no idea what it says, despite too many years of language to be able to tell you about without an extensive level of shame, but it looks pretty. 
I had printed off Advice on Adore, stamped the page, and then sliced it up into the shape of tags. 
 I added a ring and some ribbon. 
 I used the same two stamps to decorate some plain pink cups.  Champagne was the drink of choice, but we also had some cups for the non-drinkers, which includes me.  I made a sleeve using a coffee sleeve template, stamped it up.  Heather taped them onto the cups for me, and then I added a little black strip of tulle.

BEAUTIFUL job. This looks like a fun project that I'm sure the bride to be will treasure! Looks like you had fun with it!
