After seeing all of those wonderfully charming ways ask to girls to be your bridesmaids, I just had to make some cards myself. I love scrapbooking and my office is brimming with supplies, so this was the perfect idea for me. It was a fun labor of love, and it seems that my girls loved the gesture (I waited until they received them to make this post). I had a set of blank cards and envelopes to start with, and simply built upon those. Here is a step by step of how I did it...
I cut a long strip of scrapbook paper and attached it across the front.
I cut a smaller accent paper and attached it over the top of the last.
I used photo tape, but pretty much any double sided tape or glue will work.
I sketched a dress in purple and traced it in pen, on a carefully torn strip of paper.
I printed up "Will you be my bridesmaid?" four times on regular paper...
... and cut them out.
I attached the strip to varying larger pieces of paper, punched out some small holes
along the sides to put flower shaped brads through.
All put together.
I printed up some personalized messages.
I cut these out and decorated them with stamps before attaching them to
A little more stamp detail on the top.
I added a little stamp detail to the front as well.
Another personal touch on the envelopes, and we're all finished.
