DIY Sneak Peek: Paper love!

Filed in THE BABBIES 3 comments

So this weekend I was bored. B.O.R.E.D. and started thinking that, since I’m DIYing most of the paper things myself, I should at least start doing some mock-ups.

 

So I did just that. Last night I knocked out a mock-up of our table number/menu tri-fold, the program and out OOT welcome brochure. Yes, I know, I rock.

 

If you’re a frequent reader of Weddingbee.com (or “The Bee” as the cool kids call it), then you know that Miss Joey posted about her tri-fold lovely table number/menu “thingys“. As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to try and recreate something similar. It’s so practical. Check Miss Joey’s post out here.

 

So here is my rendition of the Martha Stewart/Miss Joey tri-fold.

 

Don’t mind the crease…lol…I crushed it this AM!

I’ve decided to make them a tad larger, but not too large that they take away from the centerpieces. Also, I don’t need to be ANYWHERE near scissors, I suck at cutting straight lines. Next time, I’ll let Kinko’s cut it! Also, all of the projects from my mock up were printed on resume paper (lol- it was all we had in the house), so the next go ’round will be on actual card stock.

Next I did a mock-up of our program. I had already designed it, but I needed to see exactly how it printed out AND how to construct them properly.

There were some slight (lol) alignment issues, but after I master how to put them together, it’ll be a cinch.

I’m not posting a picture of the brochure because I’m just lazy. It’s gorgeous, though.

I’m going to do another post with a tutorial on the table numbers, soon.

So what do you think?

I drop a comment when I appreciate a post on a site or I have something to contribute to
the discussion. Usually it’s a result of the passion communicated in the
article I browsed. And after this post DIY Sneak Peek:
Paper love! | Brown and Bridal Wedding Blogs. I was actually
excited enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Could it be just me or do some of these remarks appear
as if they are written by brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are writing at other online sites,
I’d like to follow you. Would you list every one of all
your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or
linkedin profile?
