In honour of #DIYFriday I’ve decided to share with you all one of my latest card DIY projects. i really had fun with this one, so I hope you guys will too!
I was recently in charge of organising a Hen party/Bachelorette weekend in London, and once I’d gotten everything planned I decided that I wanted to print each girl a copy of the weekends’ programme along with a little gift or hen party favour. I needed something that could fit in the envelope with the programme card and the personalised magnet badges are the perfect size with a diameter of just 5cm.
This DIY idea can be adapted across all occasions. Add a magnet to birthday invitations, or baby shower invites. Personalise thank you cards for babies or weddings with a photo magnet or badge or create wedding favours for each of your guests.
Choose your card & favour:
Luckily at Planet Cards you can personalise any card for any occasion. I quickly found a wedding invitation with an illustrated London cityscape – perfect for any event taking place in London town! But you can browse cards form wedding to baby, until you find what’s right for you. We have a lovely selection of little personalised gifts and favours, you could attach anything you liked to your card.
Personalise your card:
It doesn’t take long to modify the text on the front and add your own details to the back. The colour of the design and fonts can also be changed to suit your colour scheme. QUICK TIP: remember to leave enough space on the front of your card to attach the magnet.
Create your magnet:
Choose a magnet and then personalise it with your photos, colours and message. I then created my personalised badge in the same design and colours as the hen party programme to make sure it matched perfectly. If you can’t find the design you’re looking for in the magnet section let us know and we’ll have it made up just for you.
Putting it all together:
Once you’ve received your personalised cards and magnets all that’s left to do is to put everything together, ready for the big event.
Using sellotape, glue dots or even double-sided sticky tabs, carefully attach your magnet to the front of your card by pressing down firmly. Then insert your card and favour into its matching envelope. You’ll be ready in minutes.
Another advantage of a personalised card or invitation with its own magnet is that you can stick your card directly to the fridge without even removing the magnet. Keep yours on display so that you don’t forget the upcoming occasion’s date. You then get to keep the magnet as a cute little keepsake.
