Program and Menu Templates

from Martha Stewart Weddings
invite

Template uses Adobe Acrobat Reader. It depicts the information and tree in green. It is a great "filler" page for a program. Prints on 8.5 x 11 sheets

 

Info from MSW...

Branch out beyond typical wedding programs by adding a touch of Druid fun and whimsy to them. "What Tree Did You Fall From?," a Celtic version of astrology, is the perfect distraction for those awaiting the Wedding March.

Find your birthday and its corresponding tree; see if the personality traits listed match yours. If you're an apple tree (December 23 to 31), are you flirtatious, adventurous, always in love? If you're a fir (July 5 to 14), are you sophisticated, moody, industrious? Let guests read up -- and let the conversations bloom.

Tag, Label, and Misc. Templates

from Martha Stewart Weddings
invite

Template uses Adobe Acrobat Reader. The labels, which you can download, are sized to fit atop 3 1/2-inch-diameter round acetate boxes. Print labels onto the paper of your choice. Cut carefully down the center, from top to bottom, to separate labels into two strips (if you can, use a paper cutter, a paper trimmer, or a craft knife and metal straight edge). Place a 3-inch circle craft punch upside down, and slip label into punch (turning the punch upside down will let you see the image through the opening, making it easy to line up your cut, regardless of which manufacturer's punch you buy). Center label in opening, and squeeze to punch it out. Attach to acetate boxes with double-sided tape.

 

Prints 6 labels per 8.5 x 11 sheet. You are able to edit the text.
