Save the Dates and MORE Save the Dates!!!

So...funny story...I decided to make my own Save the Dates for my wedding. Which is great because I sell Stampin' Up, which is great quality paper, matching ribbon, embellishments, stamps, ink, etc!
So I calculated how many guests we would have, I purchased all the paper and ribbon and went to town a couple weeks ago. Even my in laws that were in town helped! I got a picture of my future father in law (Galen's Step-dad) Harry. Isn't he the cutest? He was so eager to help knock out these Save the Dates! Galen even decided to help, I had to get a picture of THAT! :) He even looks like he's having fun!

Here are all the finished Save the Dates in the box! Stuffed and ready to go!...But wait, what are all of those on the right that are not stuffed? hmmm EXTRAS?! Yes, that is correct. When I said I counted all the guests, I did...every man, woman and child. I came up with 100 when I really only needed about 50. DARN! LOL! Sooooo I do have 50 extras that I have no idea what to do with them. I suppose I'll take off the ribbons and salvage them and the heart die cuts too. (they won't go to waste!)
Hey, anyone making a project and need 50 real red hearts?? ;) Too bad Valentine's Day is over...well I guess I can save them for next year! :)

Package of 50 embossed hearts in real red with "Love" tag attached w/silver heart brad = $10
