I was inspired by this picture of my friend Mandy at her wedding last May. Her and her now husband met at Syracuse and she had the cutest Syracuse Garter at her wedding.

Unfortunately Wagner College, where Chris and I both went, doesn't sell such things, so I had to improvise. I got a fun green and white garter at a bar I was at for Saint Patrick's day a few year's ago. They were handing them out for free, and it said the name of the bar on it. I still had this stored away in a pile of stuff and thought..."Well, why not make this work?" So, I covered the bar name up with a blank mailing label, and cut the excess off around it.
Then, I used word to type Wagner College and added a picture of the school's crest below. I had to print it a few times to get the right size. It was harder than I thought to line this up onto the oval piece because I was working with a large rectangular label. But, eventually I was able to center it as best I could, and again, cut away the excess blank label. The result:
Are you doing a garter toss?
