Making your own Wedding stationery - Part 2

Hey there, it's Sara. This is part 2 of my guide on how to make your own wedding stationery. IF ou haven't seen part 1 yet, you can find it here.  I wanted to show you today how you can make place names and menus using the logo and invitations we used on part 1.

Supplies needed:

2 LABELS Design (ID #143087)
AUBREY FONT font ( ID #122828)
White card paper
card paper
Glue dots
Swarovski crystals


I have chosen here to work with cherry blossom as they are a classic and elegant flowers for weddings. 

Start with using the same label shape as we did on the invitations. Ungroup the file and delete the other shape.

Resize it to be about A5 size.

Create an offset shape of the label, that will be the background paper for the menus.

Put the offset design on the size and now we can start working on the menu design.

First I used the rhinestone effect to create some cutouts on the top and bottom of the menu.
Make a small rectangle and then choose the rhinestone effect using Linear Fill.

Release the rhinestones (step 1), resize the middle circle to 20ss (step 2) and the two on the edges to 6 ss (step 3). 

Now you can group them together and copy the design to have in the bottom as well.

Now you can add the text. For the text I used Aubrey Font and Times New Roman.

Resize the page size to printer size, and add registration marks.

Print and cut your menus and cut your background for the menus.  

Use glue dots or normal glue to glue them together.

An elegant wedding menu, you can also add rhinestones if you like instead of the cutouts in the menu as I have done in the main picture in the beginning of this blogpost.


Here I am using the same label shape as the above.

Remove the color and resize it to about A5 size.

Using the Outline cutting tool, cut the top of the label shape.

Keep the top part of the shape and delete the rest of it.
Create a rectangle that is about 10 cm tall and 9 cm wide.

Now add your cut label shape to the middle of the rectangle.

I copied the same cherry blossom design from the invitations and added them to top of the label shape.

I set the page size to my printer page and added registration marks. 
Then you will see on each page you can have two place cards. You can now either add the names of the guests using the Aubrey font, or print them out blank and handwrite the names. 

End result is a full wedding stationery, which you can easily use same layout and steps to make your own guestbook layout and more.
