    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

    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!!! 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!!

          You have done such a great job and at a better price than ordering the personalized playing cards. I think this is the route I am going to go as well. Thanks for the help!

                Hey, these are great. I didn't even think of personalising our playing cards - until I saw yours!

                      Great idea, those card boxes look familiar, are they the ones from Michaels??
