I am starting to stress just a tad about these menu’s that we have to print out for the dinner. It is a order when you arrive type of dinner and I need menu’s that are 4″ by 9″ exactly because the menu is so extensive and FI doesn’t want to cut off any descriptions.. If we use anything smaller, then everything looks so crushed in there together and very claustrophobic. ..Here is my problem:
I can’t find ANY DIY pre cut printable paper/template that is 4″ by 9″. I have found things on weddingpaperdiva but I would spend $300.00 if I use that site….
Here is the menu…does anyone have any ideas for me?? ( p.s… I started stressing and it was FI’s idea to go to the bee for help…so cute! )

Could you have a placard on display with the full descriptions and then a simpler version for each place?
You also need to go back through this menu and think critically about your capitalization. It’s all over the place. Why is it “Spinach” but then “roasted vegetables” for example?

Get really fancy cardstock from your local craft/scrapbooking store OR from Paperandmore.com (they have great stuff) borrow a paper cutter (or purchase a cheap fiskars one for like $30…
In a microsoft word document create a 2cell table the cells can be 4″x9″ Arrange your menu inside with 1/4″ maragins.
Cut off the extra. If you wanted to go the extra mile fiskars has some SUPER cute scaloped edge punch cutters that are to die for. You can see all the options here http://www2.fiskars.com/Products/Crafting/Punches/Border-Punches
p.s. if the cutting thing is too intense for you, paperandmore.com will custom cut any of thier card stock to your size needed.

@mrsSonthebeach : Love the idea for the placard…didn’t even think of that! Also, with the grammer and such, it came directly from the reception hall and I didn’t even look through it! Whoops! 🙂 Good catch!
@ globalmargaret : I WISH I could cut paper straight…Maybe I will give it a try, but I will contact paperandmore ( Omg, I never even heard of them!! ) to cut everything for me!!
Thanks ladies!!!! 🙂
