I used my scrapbooking corner rounder thing for little cards for late night snacks, double sided tape for things, paper slicer.. basics like that. You’d probably do well buying some cream / orange / brown cardstock b/c if you don’t use it for the wedding, you’ll use them SOMETIME. Thank you notes, etc. Even little gift tags. Get a hole puncher to run ribbon through things? I used all of my old school supplies to DIY my face off. Gluesticks, rubber cement..

Definitely invest in some paper crafting basics: Paper trimmer/slicer, bone folder, adhesives, nice craft scissors, and a hole punch are a good start. I use those things everday for my paper crafting projects. If you see some nice cardstock or papers in your wedding colors, snatch some up. If you don’t use them for your main stationery (invites, sdts, etc.) you can always use them for little accents like tags for your favors or for your place/escort cards. Other than that, everything else is up to you and how well you can resist the impulse to buy EVERYTHING 😀

A good paper cutter.  We put together our own invitations. Great, but we needed lots of paper cutters and extra blades.  It was nice to have a few styles of cutters for the various types of paper and so my husband and mom could help at the same time. 

We also used lots of glue sticks to mount our invitations. 

Think about maybe something for table numbers?  Wooden frames? Picture Frames? Chalkboards?

We used brads for our placecards and I bought a little hole puncher tool (more like a pin hole).

My favorite craft items that I used for the wedding are my paper cutter, Zots glue dots, and corner rounder.  I bought plenty of paper and ribbons in our colors, too!
