DIY Project: "Just Married" Sign
Forget the traditional "Just Married" signs of the past-you can make your announcement cute and chic!
What you’ll need:
- The Just Married Template, which can be downloaded here.
-11×17 printer paper in the color of your choice
-A thin piece of cardboard or illustration board
-Cutting tool (scissors, a box cuter or a paper cutter)
-Decorations (Fake flowers, shells, buttons, feathers, lace, millinery anemones, pom-pom millinery etc.)
Step 1: Print out your template onto a piece of paper. You can print on any color paper to customize it a bit.
Step 2: Glue your paper to a piece of scrap cardboard with spray mount.
Step 3: Trim out your sign. I used a t-square & box cutter, but you can use scissors or a paper cutter if that works better for you.
Step 4: Using a hole-punch cut two holes in the top of your sign where you can add ribbon. I pulled my ribbon thru, tied it in knots and glued it. Then I just added a suction cup to the top of the ribbon and glued a flower on top of it. Most suction cups come with a hook so you can hook your ribbon on. This will give your sign the appearance of hanging from a ribbon when you attach it to your back window.
Step 5: Add ribbon & vintage millinery flowers using a hot glue gun. This is where you can get creative and throw in colors you are using for your wedding. Instead of flowers you could use shells, lace, feathers, buttons or just about anything else that will stick and won’t be too heavy.
Step 6: Glue your suction cups to the back of your sign. I like to use super glue gel to put them on. Once the super glue has dried I reinforce them by going around the base of the suction cup with the glue gun.
Step 7: Attach your sign to the back of your car window or the back of your car. The suctions cups will hold to either surface.
