The Hang of It

Martha Stewart Weddings, Winter 2008

Get a handle on introducing out-of-town guests to your wedding locale with simple-to-assemble hanging welcome packets. Inside each, include a note of greeting, along with such items as an itinerary of events, a detailed map, and a list of places to visit. Then ask the hotel concierge to hang them from room doors so that when guests check in, they can check out all the local attractions. Calligraphy by Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls.



Tools and Materials
Legal-size (8 1/2 by 14 inches) card stock
Craft knife
2 1/2-inch circle craft punch
Bone folder
Round label stickers

Welcome-Packet How-To
Print the word welcome (or have your calligrapher script it) twice across the top of a legal-size sheet of card stock. With a ruler and craft knife, cut the card stock in half lengthwise; punch a hole in the bottom of each piece with a 2 1/2-inch circle punch. With a bone folder, crease each card-stock strip 4 inches from the top, and fold to form a pocket. Fasten sides with round label stickers.
