Puzzles and Pop Art


Today’s Inspired Creations Contest concept, brought to us by the team of Bellwether Events, Notable Inspiration, Kurstin Roe Photography, and Two Brunettes, features whimsical and colorful pop art and puzzles!

Magnetic Escort Cards

Together, the escort cards and guest book combine for a fun interactive experience.  A photo of the bride and groom was enlarged, altered into pop art colors using photoshop, and turned into a puzzle, using Joslin Photo Puzzle Company.  Magnet strips were placed on the back of each puzzle piece.  Escort cards were printed on Avery Inkjet Magnetic Business Card paper. Both were printed and affixed to magnetic white boards from Ikea.

When guests approach the escort card display, they pick up both their magnetic escort card and puzzle piece. Once they get to their table, all the table members assemble their puzzle pieces into their table’s pop-art image of the bride and groom. Then the guests heads over, completed puzzle in hand, and place it on the magnetized canvas. Guests can then sign around the border of the pop art they just created with an extra-fine opaque paint marker. Not only is this interactive but it creates a fabulous piece of art for the couple to take home!

To create a magnetized canvas, purchase a large (24 x 36 in) canvas to use as the basis for your guestbook. Lay out the puzzles in the middle and trace around the perimeter to map out the area to magnetize. Put down painter’s tape along the lines and paint the area with magnetic primer. Three coats are recommended for the best hold and each coat dries in about 30 minutes.

To introduce the puzzle and pop art themes to the wedding guests, Carolynn from Two Brunettes designed an amazing invitation and RSVP card set, which you can download right here and print on your home printer.  To create the RSVP card, use an x-acto knife to cut around the puzzle curve and a perforator to trace along the straight lines.  Guests can then separate the two sides easily!

For a fun-filled photo booth, all you need is a Mac computer with the Photo Booth application, which has a built-in pop art option.  The laptop was set on a table filled with fun props, including classic pop art items like Campbell’s Tomato Soup cans, Coca Cola bottles, and masks of famous faces including Marilyn Monroe, Mickey Mouse, the Paul Frank monkey and John Lennon. Putting a spin on the current mustache trend, there is the Rolling Stones mouth too!

The adorable three-tier cake was draped in fondant and decorated with puzzle pieces.  A pop art LOVE cake topper is the perfect accessory!
