DIY Printable Wedding Medallions
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Printable templates <– download
- 8.5 x 11 card stock, in color of your choice
- 2” round punch
- 3/8” Glitter Ribbon – or use ribbon of your choice!
STEP 1: DOWNLOAD + PRINT THE WEDDING MEDALLIONS
Pick a medallion style and download the template. Open the file in MS Word and enter your text. The fonts I used are listed below and can all be downloaded for free by following the links, or use your favorite font.
- Scroll medallion: Trajan Pro and Bickham
- Roman medallion: Imprint Shadow
- Mod Dots medallion: Futura Medium
Print the file on white or colored card stock.
STEP 2: CUT THE MEDALLIONS
Each print out yields 12 2” medallions. Cut the medallions lengthways down the paper. Each strip will contain four circles.
STEP 2 ALTERNATIVE: USE A CIRCLE PUNCH TO CUT
Punch out each circle using a 2” circle punch. Flip the punch upside down while punching to make lining up the circles easier.
This step can also be done with scissors, but trust me, the circle punch will be your new best friend if your wedding guest list is 200+ long!
STEP 3: EMBELLISH WITH RIBBON OR TAPE
The DIY Printable Wedding Medallions are now ready for embellishing in a way unique to your wedding. I used double-sided tape to attach mine to some gold glitter ribbon around an invitation, but the possibilities are endless. You could create dreamy watercolor paper and then print the medallions (check Pinterest for tons of DIY watercolor tips and inspiration). You could embellish with paint pens or stick on decals. Add a bow, punch a hole and hang them with a cute photo booth picture of the two of you. I really could go on and on. And don’t just think invitations. The medallions can be used on napkin rings, favors, candles, and more.
We hope you love this fun printable template and tutorial!
