I made mine multi-layered and sewn along the top. I designed them to match our invites. I put a grommet in the top left corner, and then put a string through the grommet to hang it from our chiavari chairs. They weren’t SO bad to make, although they were a bit time consuming making sure the pages lined up properly. Here’s a few guest photos for you.

Sorry I think this got a bit trampled/dirty, but it shows the grommet and string the best 😉

I haven’t completed mine yet, but they are going to be booklet style using a combination of parchment paper and vellum and they will be tied with a ribbon. And I will be punching the corners with a paper punch.

@PinkPinstripes: Your vision seems really nice. I was going to use the same/similar velum as you but I decided on just using clear/translucent vellum because I could get a 50 sheet pack for $5.99 at Joanns. It was much less expensive. It was on sale yesterday, but if you use a coupon, you could probably get it for the same price or less. I used this bee link for inspiration. I am going to punch a couple holes in the center fold of the program and put the binding ribbon in there from the inside out, then tie it in a bow. I am using the $1.99 sheer ribbon from Joanns. It comes 10yds to a roll. If you are using ribbon, make sure you do a mock up with a scrap piece you already have and put it on your program the way you want and then measure it and then multiply it to get how many inches you will need, then divide that amount by 36, so you know how many yds. Armed with both measurements, you should be able to purchase the correct amount of ribbon to do all of your programs.

Oh, and if you don’t like the sheer ribbon, the best way to purchase ribbon at Joanns is by the yard, if you have a coupon. You can use a coupon for one cut of ribbon and then cut the lengths you need later.

Mine were very simple, just scored, folded and ribbon! I used 8.5 x 11 cardstock, cut down to 10 x 6.5 and folded in half.  I didn’t want the typical “paper folded in half” look.
