Ask Your Bridesmaids with Ban.do! (Free Printable!)

It was really really important to me to do something special when asking my maid of honor and bridesmaids to stand by me on the big day. None of them are local and I didn’t really just want to do a phone call, mail is much more my style! I knew I wanted to include a little gift within it, and that’s why the bobbis were so perfect! They did double duty! Ban.do was on board and when I asked Nicole of Floating Specks to my printable vision into a reality, she was game too! And MAN did she deliver!!!! We came up with an accordion folded card that held the bobbis and slipped right into a little matchbox. Perfection! So if you’re gettin’ married and want to do the same, check out the how-to and download the printables below!

1. Download and print the card. Using a ruler and bone folder, score along line where the different colors meet. Then use your x-acto knife to cut small slits in the first, third and fifth card for the bobbi pins. I recommend laying the bobbi pins on top first to measure where you want the slits, then cutting!
2. Slip the bobbi pins through the slits.
3. Now get your matchbox ready. Cut a piece of your wrapping paper so it is the width of the matchbox, and long enough to wrap around the entire matchbox sleeve, with enough to overlap about a half-inch at the end. Then use double stick tape to adhere it to your match box.
4. Fill the inner box of the matchbox with confetti and fold up your card, accordion style, inside of the box. Slip it inside the re-covered outter sleeve. If mailing, slip it inside another box with some fun colored tissue and send it on it’s way!
