“Say ‘I Do’ With Xyron and Anna Griffin!”
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Soft Hues Metallic Paper Kit
- 3D Bouquet Border Stickers
- 60pc Flocked Papers
- Paper Cutter
- Glue Stick
- 9” Creative Station Laminate by Xyron (Optional)
Step 1: Create and print out your own wedding menu, I used Microsoft Word. Print the menu on Anna Griffin’s Soft Hues Metallic Paper. I used the fonts Dragon is Coming and Adorn Copperplate. You can be as creative as you want with the layout of your menu.
Step 2: Use a paper cutter to cut the menu to the shape your think will look best. I wanted my menu to be long and skinny to show off the beautiful paper border.
Step 3: Next take your Anna Griffin Flocked Paper (feels like velvety goodness) and lineup your finished menu with the flocked paper. Use a pencil and a ruler to measure out: A) where you think the menu will look best, and B) how big of a border you would like to have around the finished menu. I wanted a larger border on top, so I measured a separate piece of flocked paper for the top of the finished menu.
Tip: Once you have figured out your border widths, use a ruler and take note of the measurements and sizes so that all of your menus will be uniform.
Step 4: Use your glue stick to glue all 3 sheets together.
Step 5: Complete the menu by taking the Ann Griffin 3D Bouquet Border Stickers and place it on top.
Table Place Setting Card
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Festive Flags
- 20th Anniversary Sticker Kit
- Mini colored clothes pegs
- Metallic Marker
If you are making place card for your wedding, consider a project that is easy. When I saw the package of Ann Griffin Festive Flags I knew right away what I wanted to do with them. I first wrote my guests name on the festive flag with a gold metallic pen and then added a flower. Each flower has an adhesive sticker, so it was super easy to peel and stick. I had mini clothes pegs from another project, which can hold the guest’s name in place on their wine glass at the table.
Remember: when you are tackling DIY projects for your wedding start early and don’t make the project overly complex. If you have a lot of DIYs, the easier the project the better.
If L&L wins I will be giving away a $1000 prize pack to one of my readers!!
