So I bought this woodgrain-embossed paper for my invitations, and I am trying to find ways to use every inch of this paper!
I am doing pocketfold style invitations, so I will be using the woodgrain paper for:
1) Invitations themselves (4.5″ X 6.5″)
2) “Directions” inserts (4″ X 5″)
3) “Additional Information” Inserts (4″ X 4″)
4) Favor Tags (1.5″ X 2″)
5) Escort cards (4″ X 4″, folded in half to be tent cards 4″ wide by 2″ tall)
*Note: RSVP cards will be printed as Postcards, and will not be on the same paper*
Is there anything else I can use my paper for so that it does not go to waste??

Ceremony Programs ?
Curious is the paper printed woodgrain on one side, and white on the other ?
Having a photo (even a stock photo) here would be easier to understand what you are talking about / dealing with.
EDIT TO ADD – Lol, Brielle and I were posting at the same time… great minds think alike !!

thank you cards? (you would probably have to do some more doctoring up, like maybe add some printing or glue on a nice cut-out.)

Oh yes, programs are a great idea. And I thought about Menus, as well!
Here is the paper I am talking about:
Simple white but with a woodgrain texture…
The invitations will be matted on cobalt blue cardstock, and all will be assembled in a dark grey (you can’t see it in the pic, but they are sort of shimmery) pocketfold.
The fonts are dark grey and blue to match…. Here’s sort of the idea I’m going for….
The writing will be in dark grey font, with accent font in blue to match the birds and mat.
The writing will fit around the tree, with the formal “together with their families, (bride) and (groom) invite you….” at the top, and all the details (date, time, location) below the branch with the birds on it.
Our wedding is taking place in the woods (hence the woodgain), and here’s an inspiration board of my color scheme (although obviously the invitations at the bottom of the board are no longer included!)….

Menus? Also if you have a big roll of it, after the wedding you can wrap all your christmas or other holiday gifts in it! my sister did that and i loved how they all coordinated except with different bows and tags! It looked so cute and it didnt go to waste.

GORGEOUS Wedding Looks !!
Does the paper have an actual grain to it (bumpy) or is it just a printed / photo look ?
Another words, can the paper be printed on itself effectively… without the fonts turning out wobbly / faded etc

@This Time Round:
It’s textured. But I brought a sheet of it to the printer beforehand, and I just needed to make all the fonts bold for them to show up.
The tree looks pretty awesome though, since the woodgrain shows up really well thhrough the solid grey tree. 🙂
I’m really happy with the paper and how it prints- it’s perfectly legible, but has a nice rustic sorta feel to it, too, to go with the venue!
