Ayra Natasha must be one lucky baby.
That's what I thought during the process of making these goodies. Ayra's mum wanted specially made goodies, and handpicked each items carefully. And my task was to design the paperbags, wrap each goodies carefully and later tagged them with hand-made tags.
This is my first bulk order, so I'm very meticulous with the outcome. At first the order was for 50 goodie bags, then was later increased to 100. I think she wanted to order more, but due to time constrains, I have to stop at 100. It's been very tiring, but I think it's all worth it once I've seen the finish products.
Let's start with the invitation cards to the Majlis Aqiqah (she only wanted two for her husband's boss and office):
The cards came in two colours, and they're made with similar design concept for the whole Aqiqah event - pink and white. (p/s Ayra's parents were in the blurry background frame on the the top pic). Here's the close up for the flowers and the invitation:
As for the goodies, these were what's inside the paper bag:
(this is how the original lollipops looked like)
Cute Pink ladybird (or was it a bug) saving(s). I totally forgot to take the aftermath pics for the saving, so it's a bit sad that I can't show how it's done here. But at least you could see the bug, right? The bug was wrapped in a tulle, and was also given a tag similar to those of lollipops.
And here's the paperbags that I made:
Altogether I've done:
100 medium-size tags (for the paperbags)
100 medium-size flowers (for the paperbag tags)
300 small-size flowers (for the lollipops, marshmallow packets and the bugs) and 200 small-size tags (for the goodies)
*Pat on my back for finishing all of these on time haha*
This should be how the goodie bags looked like once all the three items were arranged inside (sorry the pic was a bit blurry - I was in a hurry!):
And last but not least, after seeing Ayra Natasha's name for the 102nd time, I finally got to meet the lucky girl:
Such a lucky cutie! (LOL for the picture-spam entry haha)
Footnote: Aqiqah is an Islamic event done to welcome a newborn baby to the world, by sacrificing animal(s) and the cooked meat were served during the occasion. Aqiqah is also known as a baby announcement event where families, friends and neighbours were invited to celebrate the blessed occasion. And sometimes during the event, (where it's more like culture-related) the newborn would have his/her first haircut.
