Yes, I designed my own program and used the tutorial from ayleebits.com to print them out!

Yes! Ours are in the shape of a sand dollar…what else? They are book style and on the cover I used chalk used for rubber stamping/scrapbooking to add a sand dollar detail over our logo (the “star” shape and slits). I then used some jute to tie them together.

Unfortunately they are packed away at my parents house and I don’t have a picture on me. If I remember to grab one tomorrow I’ll post it.

Here is the cover, I don’t really have a picture of the inside.  (I designed the inside in Photoshop and had it copied on resume paper at Office Max.)  I tied off all the thread ends, they aren’t dangling like they are in this photo.

And full disclosure here: I got the idea to sew the binding from Martha Stewart Weddings!

We did.  The cover artwork was based on the design of our ketubah (Jewish wedding contract), with the permission of the ketubah artist.

Because we got married at a private estate, we needed to include a map and some extra information, so I ended up designing ours instead of ordering them.  This is just one of the pages spreads, but the front two spreads had a welcoming statement from us as well as the ceremony details.  We had a destination wedding so we needed to put a lot more info in there. 

They were actually really easy to make though… I did the design in Illustrator and then mass printed, folded, and spray mounted the band with the embossed leaves.  This strip actually held everything together so I didn’t have to do any binding.  DIY programs are the way to go.  The invitations took SO much longer.

I did my own as well. I did all the design in Illustrator, then printed, cut and sewed them together. It was an endeavor but I loved them! Sorry I don’t havea  professional picture yet, this is from guests 🙂 I’m too tired to blur out my name. Oh well.

this was ours.  disregard the stuffed animal lemur – he was a prop for this silly guest’s photo! 🙂

wish I had a photo of the inside but eh. it was pretty standard written in the same font with the wedding party, parents, names, order of events.  The back said in rememberance of passed relatives with names and thanks to our parents as well as a message saying cocktail hour will begin on the patio after the ceremony.  I did it really simple on word printed on my home printer on basic card stock.  I printed 2 per page back front using 8.5 x 11 sheets.

Here’s the front of mine. On the back, I had either a word search, crossword, or “wedding libs.” However, I don’t have a picture of that.

bakerella Those are awesome!

heres ours… I designed them myself using microsoft publisher fonts Freebooter Script and Indypimp

Its done on just plain A4 paper, so I could manage to fit two to a page to save paper 🙂 Had to blur out names for internet sake but you get the picture.
