  • Wedding: March 2008

We DIY’ed our invitations and all the printed material for our wedding (programs, jar labels, etc.). This is my cutter and I wouldn’t trade it for the WORLD!!!!! It has literally been my right hand! I highly recommend it!

I also have a couple of punches that have been awesome for making our monogram labels. I have one that is the "push down" style and it’s a pain in the butt! The one I prefer is the squeeze kind. Like the one below. It makes it possible to see what you’re cutting as your doing it. So it’s perfect for punching out monograms and such.

A corner round is awesome! It’s super easy and really adds something to simple cards printed on your printer.

And finally, double stick tape will most likely become your best friend! I know it is in my house. The kind that they sell at mygatsby.com is wonderful and supper cheap. The despenser is expensive, but I just used the tape without the despenser and it worked great. Scotch double stick will work too, but this stuff is super cool!

Hope this helps and good luck! With less than 2 weeks to go, my best advice is never think it’s too early to do anything. I did so many things way "too" early and I’m so thankful I did. It’s making the few weeks leading up to the wedding so enjoyable!!!
