- Wedding: March 2011
Will you be my determined, authentic, nerdy, intelligent, exquisite, lively, loving, eloquent maid of honor?
I made one for each of my girls using words starting with each letter of their names that described their personalities… the hardest part was finding all the adjectives. Especially since three of my girls have 7, 8, and 9-letter names! I was stoked when I got to my 5-letter bridesmaid. 🙂 I “cheated” with google once I ran out of my own ideas.
I made the card in Word. I picked out two different fonts I liked (Fleurs De Liane and Gino School Script) I used a table to get the first letter of each word to center correctly with the rest. Then printed it on a scrap peice of cardstock.
Then I went into Format>Borders and Shading to get rid of the lines. Then I printed it again onto the front of a 5×7 card. I folded the card open and printed onto the inside.
I used the outlines as a guide to cut out the letters from the scrap peice of cardstock. The longer the name, the smaller I had to cut the squares around the first letters. I had to do some trial and error. But once I got them the size I needed I glued them to some left over Bazzill Swis Dot “Irish Eyes” card stock then cut them out again with a cardstock border around each. Then I stuck them on top of the card with pop dots, using the printed letters as a guide, and… ta-da!
