DIY | Will You Be My Bridesmaid Card

Friday, January 30, 2015

This printable DIY card will definitely wow your Bridesmaids and Maid of Honor! Inside the card is an accordion style printable that pops up when the card is opened.  Such a fun way to pop the question don't you think?!! The printable card is offered for sale in my shop as an Instant Download.  I'm going to show you just how easy this card is to assemble.

•Printable PDF File purchased HERE
•Computer printer
•White card stock paper
•Hot gun or double-sided tape
•A2 size envelope for each card

Once you've downloaded the files, print as many copies of the card as you need (Page 3 of PDF.)  Next, print out the pages that show the "Will you be my Bridesmaid/Maid of Honor pretty please?" (Page 4 & 5 of PDF.) Now take the printed pages & flip them over.  Place each page back in your printer & print the page that shows the chevron/polka dot pattern (Page 6 of PDF.) This is creating the front & back of the accordion style pop-up--see the image below. Repeat this step as many times as you need to print out enough for your bridesmaids/maid of honor. (If the front & back patterns of the accordion aren't lining up then you need to flip the paper in the opposite direction before printing the backside.)

Cut out all of the items. Fold the card in half & make a nice crease by using the back of your fingernail or the side of your scissors.

Now you're going to fold the accordion pieces.  Make sure the side with the font is facing you.  Fold the heart down so it completely covers the words "Will you."  Continue to fold the paper back & forth.

Place hot glue or double-sided tape onto the bottom of the accordion piece (bottom should be the polka dot pattern); then firmly press the accordion piece down onto the center of the card.

Yay!! You're all done!  The card will fit nicely in an A2 size envelope which can be purchased at craft or office supply stores.
