For those of you that are following my wedding journey you would know that Dylan and I got engaged this past June. Since then, I have been posting some of my DIYs and events here on my blog to share with all of you but to also have as a keep sake for me, so in a few years we can look back and re-live it all.
One of the first things I wanted to do was ask my bridesmaids if they would be in m bridal party. All over Pinterest I saw the cutest “Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes”, and I knew right away I wanted to do that. So I picked my colours and started creating these boxes.
One of the first things I put in the boxes, were these bridesmaid proposal info card. These cards just included details on what our wedding was going to include, our colours, the other girls names and how we met, etc.
I made these cards out of pink card stock. I printed the details on them, and then made a easy DIY folder for them. And I am going to show you how easy these mini folders are to make!! I can’t take credit for these, I saw similar ones one Pinterest but remade them my own way!
Here is everything you will need to make these cuties:
- Card Stock Paper
- Ribbon of choice
STEP ONE – Type up and print out your cards
Make sure you use a printer that will not jam your paper. I had to use one of the printers at my moms office because mine kept jamming the paper.
You can also download some fun free fonts and really make your cards unique!
STEP TWO – Cut your cards to make a rippled effect
Really plan out how to cut your cards so the title of each card can peek out. I did this by cutting the cards in half (I put two cards on one piece of paper in landscape), then line the titles up and cut off the bottom so they are all in line.
STEP THREE – Cut your mini folder
Place the the cards on another piece of paper and line it up so that it can fold around the cards. Make sure you have enough left on the outer edge to wrap around the cards, as you can see in this photo:
Secure with tape! I found this just held better then glue.
The front should look like this!
Then add some decorative ribbon around the folder and tape or glue it in place and your done!
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial on how to make these bridesmaid proposal info cards!
