our diy place-cards
I don't think I can call this project "diy" because I bought pre-made place cards from Joanna's Fabric...and just printed them out on my computer. But....they took me forever so I'm totally taking all the diy credit I can.
Originally, my mom was going to hand write all of the place cards...she studied Calligraphy in school...her penmanship is just divine. Now, the poor thing has carpel tunnel and I just couldn't bring myself to have her do it! Especially, since printing them sounded easy and fuss free.
Oh. I'm sure they could have been fuss free. But I couldn't just pick any normal font...oh no. I'm ridiculous and had to download a BETTER font... from Dafont. Seriously? Yes. Seriously. I spent like 2 hours trying to figure out how to download fonts...doy.
I first saw my fun font here, at iDiY and attempted to follow the instructions provided. I ended up having to watch a YouTube tutorial because my computer skills are totally lame. BUT...now I know how to do that...so I will most def pat myself on the back. I selected the Odstemplik font.
They turned out prettttty!
*note: we bought the cards at Joanna's, 100 cards for the same price as 80 cards from Michaels...just so you know....and use those coupon codes to make 'em cheap cheap!)
