Too Cute...DIY Bridesmaid Cards

>> Wednesday, August 26, 2009

I have mentioned Once Wed on this blog more than once because they have endless Do-it-yourself projects that are both easy and affordable. They have been such a huge inspiration for me while planning this wedding. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to share with you these SUPER CUTE and UNIQUE Will You Be My Bridesmaid? Cards (if I had not already made my cards, these would definitely be on my DIY list of things to do)::

Directions provided By Anna of Rifle Design


{Supplies} 1. craft paper (for clothes & hair), 2. paper for bodies, 3. envelopes, 4. ruler, 5. scissors, 6. pencil, eraser & a glue stick

{Directions} First, be sure that your chain will fit in the envelope you chose. I decided to make my chain about 6 inches tall and 3.5 inches wide to fit in an A7 envelope. Draw tick marks every 3.5 inches (or whatever width you chose) on the top and bottom of the paper for how many people you want to cut out (I chose 6).

Cut out your rectangle and score the paper vertically between each set of tick marks. This will make folding easier and more accurate. Then, fold the paper accordion style.

On the top of the stack draw the shape of your person. Be sure to draw the arms and legs to the edge of the paper so that they will be attached into a chain after you cut it out.



To complete the set I wrapped a band of paper around the chain and information card and wrote the name of the person I was to be sending it to.
