At Bride Buzz, we love our readers a lot. And we especially love them when they send us tips about their favorite finds and DIY projects. Afterall, it's all about YOU, right?! So when a faithful reader and bride-to-be Rosie Dulyapaibul—owner of the impeccably appointed Chicago boutique Roslyn—sent us her amazing wedding save-the-dates, we knew we had to share. Why? The adorable sheet-moss filled boxes, the classic pencils, the kraft paper, the custom photo stamps: it's an ingenious and unexpected Save-the-Date that caught our eye. And it's bound to catch yours, too.

We immediately called Rosie up and had her dish her finds as it was too good to keep to herself. The list of materials is simple, affordable and wrapped up all together, makes for a most memorable wedding momento. Here's how she pulled it together: What You'll Need

1. Custom Pencils from Write On Pencils—with the adorable message 'Pencil It In' followed by the couple's name and the wedding date.

2. Twine and Tags from Office Depot

3. Custom Rubber stamp made at A&E Rubber Stamp—this is a Bride Buzz approved resource! They actually make all the custom stamps for Paper Source, but at a fraction of the price. We LOVE that!

4. Sheet moss from Save-on-Crafts.com

5. Boxes from U-Line

6. Kraft Lables from KraftOutlet.com—and Rosie printed them and used a scanner to make the 'Please Deliver To:' outline.

7. Custom Photo Stamps from Stamps.com—the image is from their gushingly cute engagement photo session by photographer Pen Carlson
