D.I.Y. Love Monday's!

Not only is it D.I.Y Monday again, but today is the first of August! I chose Monday's for this portion of the Events By Ashley blog mostly because it is the day of the week that most dread, so I wanted to give people something to get excited about!

Today's D.I.Y project is pretty simple, but I thought it was super cute and creative. Most of us have gone to the hardware store to look for paint samples and come home with a bunch of sample cards that end up laying around, or taped to the wall for a while till we decide what color we like best! I am guilty of I decided to use the fun paint samples I collected and complete this fun little bookmark!

Paint sample card bookmarks

So....I love this idea because again, it can be used as a wedding/event favor or simple thank you gift! So choose your color palette that goes along with your wedding/event and then get to work! You can stamp them, draw your own design, even put your wedding logo or monogram on them to give it more of a personal flare. Super cute, unique and personal.

Things you will need:

Paint sample cards
hole punch
brads (silver hole cover as shown in picture)

Your choice of either/or:
stamps, pens, markers, any material you can think of to use for your special design!

Please post pictures if you choose to do this fun little project. I would love to see what you come up with!


  1. What kind of stamp did you use? I love it!

  2. Gracie!!! Go to Michaels or hobby lobby and look through the stamps! Sorry for the delay in answering you!
