DIY Polka Dot Cards

I've been looking for some thank you cards for Alice's birthday - something pink, something polka-dotty (obviously). I wasn't having any luck until I came across this blank box of shimmer cards. I've always been a big fan of blank cards. It's nice to have them on hand when an occasion arises so that you don't have to run out and spend $5 on a card. I found the cards at Wal-Mart for a whopping $8, not bad for 40 cards. I then strolled on over to the next aisle and right into these neon label stickers.

Blank cards + bright circles = insta polka dot cards. Done and done.

Now follow along with me, this is pretty tricky...
Step 1: buy blank cards and circle labels.
Step 2: stick labels to card.

That's it, you're done!!

I love the contrast between the neon and neutral colours. It's a bit hard to tell in the photos but the cards have a really nice subtle shimmer to them. They'd look nice and pretty even on their own.

I can't take full credit for this project, I was inspired by a gift wrapping project I saw on Project Wedding here. So many options with these stickers, my wheels are turning!!

So that was quite possibly the easiest, fastest DIY ever, just the way I like it.

  7. What adorable cards! I once did something similar to an envelope, although I used cardstock circles and glued them on. Stickers are even better, and the neon is oh-so-trendy ;-)
