DOWNLOAD and PRINT this adorable ‘Will you be my Bridesmaid’ card and tag for FREE! Each sheet has one card and one tag… if you aren’t into the pink and red, simply set your printer to ‘black and white’ and it will print these in a grayscale!

Maid of Honor   ///   Bridesmaid

Once you have these cute designs printed on sticker paper (or white cardstock) write each of your bridesmaids names on the tag area. Write their names before you cut the cards out – just in case you mess up the name.

Using either a paper trimmer or scissors, whichever you are more comfortable with, cut out each card along the black line.

If you used sticker paper, peel the backing away and press onto your cardstock. Then cut leaving about a 1/4″ boarder of the cardstock. Do both the card and the tag… and again you can use scissors or a paper trimmer to cut these out.

I chose to make the ‘maid of honor’ card a different color than the ‘bridesmaid’ card…

Now we will be attaching a beautiful David Tutera Bridal broach to the card as a little gift to your bridesmaids, which would make great wedding day accessories. They could wear these in their hair, on a clutch, on a belt, or even in their bouquets! With your card sitting on a folded towel, using a piercing tool or a thick needle – pierce two holes in your card about a quarter inch away from each other.

Then thread your broach pin through the card and close the clasp.

Now place your darling finished card inside your mailer box and add other little gifties!

David’s new line has these cute bubble wands that would make a great addition to your box, add a little color coordinated bow and your good to go…

Diamonds are a girls best friend… so add a few diamond charms to the box as well!

Your friends will be forced to say “Yes!” …not that they wouldn’t have…

Now for the tag and bling for the front of the box. Apply 5 or 6 glue dots to the back of your tags and adhere them to the front of each mailer box.

Aren’t they just darling little gifts!!??

Now the best part, an adhesive shimmer sheet of rhinestones to seal the box! These sheets are very tacky and they hold extremely well. I cut strips of 12 rhinestones long (you can get three strips out of each sheet) to seal each side. Peel away the backing and apply evenly!

I’m in LOVE… and your girls will be too!

I've always admired card-making from afar, but been nervous to make them myself. You make it seem almost easy and I'd love to try it out!

What a great idea! The card and printable is adorable, and I love how you incorporated all of the fun bling into the project. This is such a fun way to surprise your friends with an invitation to be your bridesmaid. (P.S. I love your photos!)
