• {DIY} Cootie Catcher Wedding Menus

    DIY cootie catcher wedding menus via Oh Lovely Day photo by Jennifer Roper
    I love these cootie catcher menus for weddings (maybe I’m biased, since these are from my own…)  They add a touch of whimsy to any style of wedding, and a bit of nostalgia too.  And they are really easy to do, if you are a DIY’er.
    Paper in the color of your choice
    Ink in the color of your choice
    A decent printer
         (or just print one and have them color copied on your paper at a Kinkos or other copy place)
    A bone folder (or similar tool)
    A friend to help you fold them (because it gets really tedious to fold fold fold) – if you are having a 300+ person wedding, you may not want to go this route.  I had around 140 people.
    1.  You either need to design a template for yourself, or you can use ones I found here (for powerpoint)
          or here (for Photoshop).  Then personalize it to fit your wedding.
    2.  Print the number that you need (plus a few extras) or print one and have them copied.
    3.  Then fold them.  Since that part can be tricky too, I found this video to help you!
    *The thing this video doesn’t do is use a bone folding tool to really get the folds done well.  Trust me, for wedding menus you do want to use the tool.  It will help the menus stay folded how you want them.
    After all of your hard folding work, you will get something like this:

    What do you think?  Love cootie catcher menus, or prefer something more traditional?  I think menus and little details like that are a great place to let some fun and personality shine through.  Has anyone else made their own cootie catcher menus?

      This is a super cute idea!

      I think this can be a great idea for any wedding. It can be for the more sophisticated weddings and for the fun ones. It all depends on how you create them, which font you use, which color scheme, etc. It’s such a unique idea that really brings out the child in you. This can also make a great activity for your bridal party to help you out with before the wedding day. Grab a bottle of wine with the girls and while you are all chit-chatting you can create these cute little menus.
      A great unique idea!

      I would love to use the template from powerpoint for my wedding! How do you print the template without the fold lines? How do you print the template so it fits on more of the page? In other words, I’m having trouble editing the template on powerpoint! Help is appreciated! Thanks so much!

      Just completed my own version of the cootie catcher menu. Thank you SO much for the time-saving template for Photoshop. Worked like a charm, and they are sure to be a hit!

      I am using this format for my wedding ceremony program and was curious as to the type of paper you used. I trialed cardstock and printer paper but found the cardstock is too thick and the printer paper too thin. I plan on taking my template to OfficeDepot to have them print the programs and my printer is not that great. Thanks!

      s world, technology has revolutionized and positively raised the
      benchmark when it comes to sports betting and sports odds,
      online. I’m not sure it’s worth the price of five additional copies of the game and five first
      months’ subscription fees, but I’m betting there probably is
      someone out there who is. The no cost wager is the
      bait as a result of which probably large gamblers are lured into the orbit of the sportsbook.

    •  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨  And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood
       You know what is a great motivator? Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo  There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice!
