DIY Birthday Series: Postcard Bunting

June 10, 2013

Unknown

For this DIY Series, we’ll teach you how to use products from our site to add the perfect, personalized touch to a birthday. 

First, using postcards to make birthday bunting. 

Bunting’s all the rage and you don’t need a lot of resources to pull it off in time for a birthday bash. “Bunting,” for those unfamiliar with the term, is usually a decoration with a number of flags sewn to rope webbing.

With the proper postcards from Zazzle, you can easily spell out a special birthday phrase, name or message.

Step 1: After receiving your personalized bunting postcards, cut each postcard according to the decorative edge of the template.

Step 2: String an appropriate number of mini-clothes pins to match the number of cards.

Step 3: Attach postcards to clothespin.

Step 4: Spread the cards evenly on the twine (feel free to add a knot after each clothespin to secure the card’s placement).

Step 5: Cut the twine at the desired length and display on a wall in the center of your party.

You’re done!

In our next DIY Birthday Series, we’ll show you how to make cupcake wrappers with flyers.

DIY Baby Shower Series: Scratcher Postcards

May 12, 2013

For this DIY Series, we’ll teach you how to use products from our site to add the perfect, personalized touch to a baby shower. 

First, scratcher postcards for a “gender reveal” baby shower.

Is it a boy or a girl? Turn an ordinary baby shower into an occasion to announce your baby’s gender with family and friends.

Gather everyone and have them participate in an interactive game, where they’ll have to scratch a card to find the answer.

Supplies: 

1. Gender reveal postcard (this is a template product, so feel free to include the messaging inside the balloons).

2. Silver acrylic paint

3. Dish soap

4. A plate

5. A paintbrush

6. A coin

Unknown-2

Step 1: Personalize the scratcher postcard with the correct gender.

Step 2: Pour three parts acrylic paint and one part dish soap on a plate.

Step 3: Mix the paint and dish soap together.

Step 4: Paint inside the balloons to cover the answer, using 2-3 coats of paint. Let the paint dry between coats and repeat until you can no longer see the text.

Step 5: Let dry. (It might take up to an hour to dry).

You’re done!

Provide the finished scratcher postcards to your guests and hand them coins. Have them guess the gender and scratch to see the answer! Whomever gets it right can get a special treat.
