Soft Touches: Program Jackets

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2000

Wide moire taffeta ribbon becomes a beautiful jacket for a wedding program. A narrow brown ribbon tied in a simple bow holds the finished booklet closed.

Program Jacket How-To
You will need: scalloping shears, 4 1/2 -inch-wide moire taffeta ribbon cut to 7-inch length, program printed on 6 1/4-by-4 1/4-inch paper, paper clips, thin satin ribbon 18 3/4 inches long, pins, and sewing machine.
1. Fold program in half; crease. Fold wide ribbon in half; iron to crease. Center open program on unfolded ribbon; clip in place. Center narrow ribbon on outside of wide ribbon, perpendicular to fold, and pin close to the crease.
2. With booklet open to center, sew through all 3 elements along the fold. Tie off thread and trim excess. Remove clips and pins.

    I love it! I think I would like to use this idea for my vintage wedding. I am going to look and see what is out there in terms of wide ribbon. I probably could decorate with lace and trinkets to give a little 1920 ish style

    I found a great online store www.romanticflowers.com that has wider ribbons. HTH.
