In honor of “Engagement Week”… it was only fitting to finish it off with a darling new “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” gift idea! Asking your besties to be by your side on your special day has become quite a big deal (which we love!) and so today I’m sharing this fun, unique and inexpensive way to – pop the question!

Have your fiancé, friend or photographer… take super fun pictures of you holding these signs! I did these against a gold sequin tablecloth, with simple 8.5″ x 11″ cards printed from my computer. The font used is: Lavanderia via LostType.com

Next, upload all your darling pics to Instagram – or maybe even make a secret account so no one can see them – and order these amazingly cute and super cheap ‘Tinybooks” from Printstagram. They are only $10 for 3!

Make sure to create a sign for each gal… don’t forget your Maid of Honor and maybe even your flower girl! To fill the book which can hold 24 photos… take a few extra silly or fun pictures of yourself celebrating your new bling, maybe even include a few of your favorite pictures of you and that bridesmaid. If you’ve already done your engagement session, you could include a couple of those as well! No matter the images you choose – they have to be Instagramed to order these tiny books!

Tie a miniature engagement ring charm onto this tiny book by threading eyelash yarn (or ribbon) through the hollow book binding and tie a knot.

Place into a cute round kraft box, or any box you’d like. Make tags for each gift and wrap them up sweet… maybe even include a few extra gifts for your gals!
