I am beyond thrilled to be a guest blogger for Brides Magazine today! This save-the-date project I created is so easy, it almost feels wrong! With the same concept, you can make menus, escort cards and place cards stamped on nearly anything. Think vintage hankies, napkins, kraft paper, … any flat surface will do (be sure to buy metal/glass ink pad if you’re stamping on hard surfaces).


With a stamp kit from Staples (about $25 with ink pad), I created this simple save-the-date card using vintage postcards I found on eBay. Craigslist is a magical place for postcard lots if you have time and patience to wait for a local listing. There you can find large lots for next to nothing!

Alternating between the large and the small fonts, I placed the letters on the stamp with the help of the tweezers that come with it. Luckily, you only place the letters once – once that’s ready it’s a breeze! You can also use the smaller stamp for your return address on the envelopes. It will match the font on the save-the-dates and give a crisp vintage vibe! See the entire blog post here.

And while we’re at it, stay tuned for our second annual DIY Contest — coming soon!
