{DIY} Cootie Catcher Wedding Menus

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.
{Materials}
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.
{Instructions}
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?

  •  Surprised this fella with a solo ice cream date after school today and it was good. The company and the ice cream.   Each one of my kids teaches me different things in different ways. Today this one taught me that two tantrums and a skipped nap do not a bad day make. Because despite his seriously trying my patience today we actually had a pretty good one.
