Now that title sounds funny.

 

I had a hard time finding a STD that I liked because I wanted something personal and not too formal. That's just the kind of people we are. So I decided to DIY.

 

Here's what I concocted.

I wanted a postcard, so I designed this one myself and printed it off.

Designed the back and simply printed on the backside of my 4x6 photo paper. I did have to test several different brands to make sure that the ink didn't bleed when printed on the back. I loved taking the picture for this. We ordered a 48oz margarita that was so good.

I decided that the postcard was not elaborate enough, so I found some cheap shells at Michaels. They had a bundle of 48 on sell for under $2. I have also seen these bundles sold in the Dollar Store. For the shell on the right, I simply hot glued the magnet to the back. For the clams, I had to find a way to stabilize it's weight so it would hang on a fridge. I did this....

The Dollar Store had tiny little popsicle sticks on sale. There was probably 100 in the bag, but I only used maybe 10. I cut the popsicle to the desired length for the clam, glued it, then glued the magnet on the back.

We are going to hand deliver most of the STD since it's close friends and family. We don't have to worry about mailing them, so I found these bags and tags at Michaels. I also picked up the little "Fiesta" rubber stamp for $1 because I thought the margarita was appropriate for our STD.

 

It looks cute hanging on our fridge, but now that I created these I have the self-doubt. Are these too cheesy? Ahhh.....I double think EVERY decision I make.

You did a great job! I always double think every decision too (especially DIY projects). But, don't doubt yourself on these - they are fantastic!
