I had a blast planning the casino party for the hubby and his friend! I spent hours looking for inspiration and made lots of DIY touches to give the party a little something extra and wanted to share them with you. You can also check out the pics in the party post to see how I put it all together.
These poker hand cards were by far my favorite DIY for the party (I even made sure there were enough left over to keep by the poker table at our house!). This was originally inspired by this pin on Pinterest, but the source was no longer available and I couldn't find anything similar searching. So I decided to design my own. I designed the text, then printed it on white cardstock post cards. I finished it by wrapping a piece of black ribbon around it and adding one of the personalized poked chips.
I turned this into a pdf printable that you can download and print here: Poker Hand Printable (pdf)
I also made these cute dealer buttons for the games. For these I printed the "Dealer" on red cardstock, cut it out, and popped it into a 3 inch button form (you can get these at the craft store).

For the dice favors, I bought red dice in bulk on Amazon. I used clear cellophane treat bags and placed in the number of dice for the game (5 for Liar's Dice, 2 for Craps). I found rules for the games online and printed them on tags I found in the scrapbooking section of the craft store. I folded over the top of the treat back and used an 1/8" punch to punch a hole. Then I threaded black and red curling ribbon through the hole in the treat bag and the tag, knotted them, and curled the ends.
I thought some custom poker chips would be a fun keepsake for the guys, but all the ones I could find were crazy expensive! So I bought cheap plastic chips in bulk off Ebay and picked up the printable stickers that go on the bottom of Hershey kisses from the wedding section of the craft store. I printed out the stickers and stuck them to chips. Super simple! (I did it while watching TV and it went really fast).
If you try any of these ideas for your party, let me know! I'd love to see how it turns out =)
