Cut out the hearts along the pencil markings.

Step 4: Paint

Picture of Paint
Coat the cardboard hearts with a layer of red paint.
Leave them to dry completely.
(I used acrylic paint as it dries faster.)

Step 5: Write "I DO"

Picture of Write
Use a pencil to lightly draw “I” and “DO” on the hearts.
Or if you like, write your name initials or any meaningful symbols/letters.
Once you’re happy with the design, go over the pencil markings with black permanent ink.

Step 6: Attach stick

To finish off, tie a ribbon bow on each stick just below the heart.

Done! These props will look great for your wedding shoot,
wedding photo booth or home decor.

I'm not really terribly familiar with weddings, but finding a renewed interest in the subject lately.

Please explain more about the role these signs play in the proceedings. Are they merely decorative, table centre type things to be surrounded with flowers and such, or is there a part of the ceremony where one needs to wave a sign? I can't say I've seen it, but then I only recently learned about "Wedding Sand" and I've never seen that done either.
Very cute! I look forward to seeing the other wedding ideas you come up with :)
