mexico workshop 2013 with jose villa

i have been meaning to post these photos for some time... i am so thrilled and honored to have contributed my paper designs to this project of such mega talented proportions. 

first, i designed paper pieces for the welcome box. each box had a small square booklet with the activities for the week. i stitched each booklet spine with silver thread to hold the pages together. 

a wide belly band was letterpress printed in olive green with my mexican inspired hand drawings. the belly band was wrapped around each hand made box. oh the details... a little round window was cut from each belly band to reveal the hand written name of each guest. the belly bands were sewn at the corner seams with silver thread to secure. 


for the invitations... in tones of agave and soft gray green with pops of silver. agave lettering, hand embossing and sterling silver leaf details on each piece. the invitations were presented in vintage celadon silk pouches with agave envelope. the whole suite was then insetred into a larger mailing envelope with hand embossed and silvered belly band address application. 



the programs were simply coordinated with hand embossed and silvered leaves and spine. simply written in tones of agave. 


the menus for the place setting had a simple hand embossed and silvered dotted border with agave text. i love how they mirror the border on the plates and chargers. 


little details for a gorgeous tequila bar... hand written tags with silvered hole reinforcements. 

and the sweetest detail... a burro to carry the wedding packages.
