Add a touch of gold to your wedding lunch or dinner with these name cards. Save some money with some simple DIY wedding elements like this.
My sister recently got married and I begged and pleaded to do SOME sort of DIY element for her. We settled on name cards because they’re a simple little DIY but are obviously super important.
I wanted a subtle gold touch on these cards because I didn’t want them to distract from the other decor but I wanted them to coordinate.
How to make Gold Foiled DIY Wedding Name Cards
- Transfer Foil
- Laser Printer
- Glue Tape
- Paper Cutter (optional, but I used this to make sure my cards were all the same size.)
Print your cards using a laser printer. This is what the foil adheres to so is very important! If you only have an inkjet printer, most print shops print using laser printers. That’s what I do!
Now I crinkled up my transfer foil so that it had a brushed look to it.
I used my glue tape to make a single strip and pressed the gold foil against the sticky portion. It made it look like I swiped gold foiling on it! I used the same gold sheet for quite a few of the cards until the foil was mostly used up.
I did this for all of the name cards but did a different swipe on each one so that they were all unique. They turned out so beautiful and looked super classy.
I think every wedding should have some sort of DIY element because it makes it more personal in my opinion.
