Flower Girl’s Butterfly Net and Ring Bearer Bug Box
Two fairy tale design details…
that will capture the imagination of even the youngest members of your wedding party.

You can do these months ahead of the wedding and simply add a few blossoms, ivy or Chrysanthemum petal and palm leaf butterflies before the wedding, as I did here.
The designs are quite durable and will endure scrutiny by curious little hands even though they may look delicate and fragile.
