Stationery is one of those sneaky costs of weddings. Most couples begin planning with a few hundred set aside for invitiations invitations and don’t realize that it also can includes escort cards, name cards, menus and more. And while it may cause unplanned for costs, it’s also one of the easiest to DIY (simple, but also time consuming, so plan accordingly). Tanya Costigan of Bowties and Butterflies Event Planning shows us how to create these beautiful DIY-friendly menus in five easy steps.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Double sided adhesive tape roller
Printer (any home printer will work)
Stop at your local craft/paper store (or online) to pick your favorite cardstock. I chose this amazing glittery, gold pinstripe cardstock.
(This one is 12″ x 12 “)
Cut to the size you want.
Tanya cut hers into four 6″ x 6″ squares.
Print your menu on vellum paper. Vellum is a transparent paper that you can print on. You can get this at your local office supply store. Use your favorite font and make sure you keep the text within the measurements of the size of your cardstocks. You should keep the text centered, and leave enough room on the edges, and top and bottom for a more appealing look. Tip: you can download free fonts from www.fontsquirrel.com
Cut your printed menu to the size you need.
Using the adhesive tape (found at local office supply store) around the edges of the vellum, center and secure the vellum to the cardstock however you’d like.
