Hive, here’s another
DIY project completed by yours truly!
This DIY really is destination wedding specific: this is a holder for your room key and tip money while at the beach or pool (or heck, while you’re out anywhere outside of your room.) I totally
stole borrowed this idea from the DIY section of the Best Destination Wedding Forums.
Because I get excited, and am proud of this project, here is the finished product:
These were a breeze to make. I found the template on the BDW website and just tweaked it to fit my wedding details. The edges read: “To have and to hold my room key and tip money, from poolside to bar stool, when tipsy or sober, in heat and humidity, until I depart”.
I printed them on Avery 5390 Badge Inserts and used resealable badge holders (which had a ziplock edge. This was the worst part of the project, getting the zip locks open the first time kinda sucked. Some were stuck together).
I bought multicolored wrist coils (with whistles attached) (1 doz for $4) and mini flashlight key chains (1 doz for $6) from Oriental Trading Company. I used mini flashlights because someone on Trip Advisor had complained about dark paths at night, with poor lighting at the resort. I don’t want any of my guests to trip and/or fall. That would suck.
The assembly line:

I decided to remove the whistles from the wrist coils because I feared
drunk tipsy guests might get inappropriate with them at all hours of the day and night. I then added the flashlight key chain, and attached the badge holder.
And… VOILA! Totally cute, personalized holders for our guests to keep their room key(s) and/or cash. This project was pretty quick too. I did 3 dozen in about 90 minutes (2 episodes of Four Weddings.) I am going to include them in the OOT (out of town) bags.
I love how they turned out and I hope our guests find them useful.
