This is a fantastic DIY idea for cocktail hour, or even a wedding shower. You can put fun little facts on these about the bride (at a shower) or the bride and the groom (cocktail hour or reception). The best part? It gets your guests involved (in a small way).
All it takes is little cards, which you can create using printer paper and cardstock. Just print out the fun little facts on pieces of paper and cut into small pieces. Then attach them to the cardstock.
To make the “scratch off” part, just mix two parts of metallic paint and one part liquid washing soap. Use a craft paint brush to paint over the image or fun fact on the paper.
It takes about two coats to fully cover the text/image on your little scratch off’s. Be sure to let them dry between coats. Once all of the coats are dry, you are good to go, so grab your pennies!

The Pilot and I probably are not going to include an icebreaker (I just don’t have the DIY spirit in me), but we may find another way to get our guests mingling. Although, I honestly don’t think it’ll be a problem. My side of the family are talkers!
Are you doing any ice breakers for your guests?
