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
Ruler
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.

    Try and incorporate the wedding color scheme into the design of the hanger. We also suggest using recycled card stock, it is better on the planet and your guest will appreciate it. http://www.jampaper.com/PaperCardstock/ParchmentRecycledPaperCardstock

    Have you checked out www.rippedsheets.com? They supply sheets of card with door hangers already precut - and in small quantities. You might want to use one of their templates

    www.paperworks.com has legal size card stock, it's about $16.00 a package plus shipping (250 sheets per pack) It ups the price of this project and chances are if you are not making a bunch of these it might not be cost effective and you will have a lot of cardstock left over.

    I have your solution ladies. I made a word version of the "welcome" with the page set at 11x17 size, I made 3 table columns with the word welcome in the outer 2 at the top of the page and a third column in the middle was twice the width of the side margins (so when cut in half they would be even). Turn that into a pdf, and submit it online to Kinko's. Select card stock in the options, and select to be cut in half. You pick it up 2 hrs later and they are PERFECT!!
