When designing the programs for my wedding, I started with the must have elements: Burlap. Stitching. Vintage patterned paper. The design evolved from there and the final product turned out to be the perfect memento for our garden wedding. Keep reading for a brief how-to!
To make, I began by printing 2 pages per sheet, front and back. By printing 2 pages per sheet, I was able to save a ton of paper and reduce the overall cost of the project. I then followed up by cutting each sheet directly down the center margin with my paper cutter. For the back cover, I used recycled Kraft cardstock and a collection of different vintage patterned papers for the front cover. The final layer was a piece of scalloped edge burlap fabric, which tied in perfectly with burlap cones filled with hydrangeas we used for the aisle decor. To hold all of the individual layers together, I machine sewed down the left margin with a running stitch in a chocolate brown thread.
