Wedding Programs

Here's a fun project if you are looking to make some classy yet affordable wedding programs for your wedding.

What you will need:
• Cream-colored legal size copy paper (1 ream = 500 sheets)
• DMC floss in two colors (light pink and chocolate brown)
• Pads of 11"x17" 50 ct. Vellum (makes 100 programs)
• Paper Source "half moon" enclosures (luxe blush)
• Watercolor paper or luxe cream paper (for sashes and for monograms)
• Cream-colored satin ribbon
• 2 monogram rubber stamps (bride and groom's initials)
• Ink pad (brown)
• Double sided tape
• Small hole punch
• Laser printer/computer

You will simply need to print your programs on the copier paper lengthwise, 2 per page. In other words, if you cut the paper in half the long way, you will have 2 program pages, each approximately 5" x 14" that you can fold in half to booklet size. The final booklet size will therefore be 5" x 7". You can also print your title page on the vellum for a soft effect. Once all of your bookelts are printed and folded, bind each booklet with the DMC floss.

Next you will need the program holders: For this we used the Paper Source's blush luxe half moon enclosures with watercolor paper or luxe cream cover stock wrapped around the middle. This is secured with double sided tape. For quick results I recommend the 3M kind that comes in a dispenser. The mongrams were stamped on cream cover stock as well using a monogram rubber stamp for each of our last names and chocolate brown ink. Holes were punched in the corners of the mongrams and tied around the whole program. Slide the booklets into the folios and there you have it!

I know this was put on here ions ago but I am just wondering where did you find your monogram rubber stamp? I have been all over and can't find one that has the flourishy stuff around the letter. ANY help in that regard would be ever so helpful, you may email the info to me at
