DIY Sun Print Wedding Escort Cards


Clary Pfeiffer recently sent over this gorgeous tutorial around sunprints. Remember the sunprint inspired cake Joy Thigpen designed a couple years back on Once Wed? Clary used sunprint paper to create the most delightful place cards. The full tutorial with instructions is below. Thanks, Clary!

acrylic sheet
a tub full of water
object to print

1. Arrange transparency with names and queen anne’s lace, or object you want to print, out of the reach of sun on the sun paper.

2. Place the acrylic sheet over the object to help sharpen the edges between the blue and white of the final print.

3. Take the sun print out side and lay in direct sunlight for 2-5 minutes until the paper turns light blue.

4. Rinse the sun print in water and watch the white turn into Prussian blue.

5. Hang or lay the sup print to dry.

6. Cut and fold sun prints for display.

      Hi Kim! It’s simply on transfer paper. You can use any texted/font or write directly on the transfer paper. Place the transfer on top of the sun print paper along with any other object (flowers, lace, botanicals, etc.) you would like. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any other questions!
