Hi All, I need help. Having got inspiration from some wedding books and other bees in the beehive, I initially decided to make my menus into cootie catchers. After designing and prinitng and cutting each of the printed sheets into a sqaure, Mr. Stressball says that the Menus look good and unique as it without folding (which would save me a ton of time and effort)!!
I have attached the picture of both, what do you guys think? Would it look weird if it lays flat on the charger plate and the guests needs to keep on rotating it from side to side? Which one looks better?
Love to hear from all the bees…open to all ideas and suggestions.

I voted "fold" and I think it’s a really cute idea, especially if it goes with the tone of your wedding. I can also tell you put a lot of work into them! I think that would be fun to have on the table, unless you’re going for a very formal, traditional feel.
If you choose to leave them flat, I’d really consider using a different design. I don’t care for them unfolded at all, just my opinion.

Folded! If left unfolded, I think it might be confusing for guests who aren’t familiar with "cootie catchers."

Fold it! If you don’t fold it I think it would be really confusing and kind of a pain to read.
I LOVE this idea! I might steal it for my cocktail menus for my guests to "toss around" or something like that! Can I ask where you got it?

Fold, fold, fold, fold, fold! The cootie catcher is so cute. I think unfolded is just all over the place and some people just may not get it.
Great job though!!

I would say fold some and leave some unfolded. I think that some of my older guests wouldn’t know what to do with the game and get frustrated and pout. This way it would cut down on your stress 🙂 and everyone would be wowed and happy.
