I am obsessed with the idea of "branding" our wedding, so this time it's a sticker label to put on the playing card box/container that we will be including in our OOT gift bags for our guests. I saw a similar idea on a website but was shocked to see how much it would cost to order personalized playing card stickers -- so of course when you're cheap like me, make it yourself cheesy.gif

 

I used my wedding colors -- canary, latte, terracotta, and red -- for the symbols. You can use whatever cute saying you'd like -- mine say "Two of a Kind" and "Lucky In Love", I also like "The Perfect Pair".

 

IMPORTANT TIPS or MUST DO'S:

 

1) Use a paper cutter to make sure your labels are cut straight -- you will be able to fit 12 to a sheet.

 

2) Do lots of test labels on regular paper to make sure they fit before printing on full sheet sticker paper, which can be bought at staples for about $10 for 30 sheets

 

3) The fonts I used are "Freebooter Script" and "English" -- if you use my template, first you need to download these for free at dafont.com or the template will not show correctly.

 

4) The template is designed for stickers that fit perfectly on the cards w/container currently being sold at Michaels OR the playing cards sold by the dozen on the Oriental Trading Company website. If you adjust the template, the margins and dimension will start moving so fix accordingly.

 

It's a super easy project that gives your cards a fun, personal touch!!! wink.gif Here are the pics:

Those are SO cute! You truly are a DIY queen, I remember looking at those back when I was getting married and after I saw how much $$ they were, I forgot all about them! You did a great job and your guests are going to love them!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
