Wow, those look great! I am so excited to try this myself. I just bought the same cards from Michaels too. The sales lady looked at me as if I was crazy for buying 50 decks at one time, but thought it was a cute idea when I said what it was for. I was originally going to splurge and buy personalized ones from a website, but then decided I really needed to make almost all of my items under $1 if I was going to be doing around 50 bags and figured there had to be a way to DIY. Thanks for posting the template!

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:

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
