Wedding DIY Series: Bridesmaids Love/Thank You Frame

In an effort to give personal thank yous to my bridesmaids, I was thinking of ways to create something that had significant meaning. I wanted more than just a simple “thank you” card. 

One day, I was scrolling through Instagram and came across Jen from Made By Girl. She sells these really pretty prints! Well, Linh at ABeautifulRawr created a gift for her best friend’s bachelorette party and I fell in love immediately! {Swoon} It was so easy yet very effective…I was inspired. Even though Jen’s prints are very affordable, I opted for the DIY version since I was going to make 8 of them. {1 maid of honor, 5 bridesmaids, 1 hostess, 1 scripture reader/MC} This is what I came up with:

1) I spray painted some dollar store frames in my favorite gold color {See the tutorial here}

2) I was going to hand-write the note but I didn’t like the way my handwriting looked in the frame. So, I chose a font that was pretty but looked almost handwritten. I wrote a different note to each girl. {Side note: I only have 1 sister and 5 best friends. My circle is tight and I’ve known all the girls for 8+ years or more}

3) I printed the note on 5×7 lightweight card stock using Microsoft Publisher. I had to arrange the many text boxes just perfectly so I could achieve the slanted look I was going for.

4) After, I found a cursive font and printed the word LOVE on a separate sheet of paper. I put the LOVE print on the back of the note and traced the letters with a Metallic Gold Painters Marker.

ET VOILA! Personalized Perfection! I put this in the Bridesmaid Thank You Gift box that I created.
