I’ve been lurking the boards here on Wedding Bee for about a month and I’ve finally decided to register and speak up. I have found so many wonderful ideas here and it’s actually the wonderful group of creative women that frequent these boards that gave me the courage to attempt my own wedding invitations.
I’ve decided that I want to make a Mad Lib for the RSVP card, and I have the whole thing planned out but am having trouble with one particular aspect of it. I want the blanks to have the word underneath them…. like this:
Except, you know, not on the next line. I’ve driven myself crazy trying to figure out a way to do this but I know there have been some people who have posted who have done this so I’m hoping that someone takes pity on me and helps!

How were you envisioning the RSVP? Have you figured out the wording or bought the supplies? I have an idea but it may be more complicated than you’re looking for. If you have a piece of paper over the top of the actual RSVP, you could print the word on that cover sheet and cut out the blanks where the words are supposed to go. (Hopefully that made sense, haha.)

I was hoping to be able to do it on the computer, preferably in Microsoft Word as that’s what my current RSVP is formatted in. I’ve played around with text boxes and line spacing, but so far no luck. I’m just hoping I’m missing something!

If you’re using MS Word – type out your main text first, and then set that paragraph to double space. Then create independent text boxes for each of the Mad Lib bits (verb, noun, etc.). Make sure the text boxes have no fill and no line, and then position them under the appropriate blanks.

you can do what studio.ariadne suggested above, or you can play with your paragraph spacing (set it to almost non-existant), but you’d have to change it for each line.
PM me if you’re having a lot of trouble with this, and I’ll give you my email address and help you out. 🙂
