Kaitlin & Mike's Blue Ceremony Program Booklets

What You Need:

•  8 1/2" x 11" navy blue card stock
•  3" x 3" light blue invitation liner paper
•  2 1/2" x 2 1/2" white paper card stock printed with your monogram
•  20" to 30" light blue ribbon (about 1/4" thick)
•  *7 1/2" x 10" paper printed landscape-style with the ceremony info
                                                                                    •  Mini hole puncher
                                                                                    •  Glue or spray adhesive

How to Make Them:
•  Fold the sheet of navy blue card stock in half width-wise.
•  Glue the light blue paper square onto the middle of the folded navy blue card stock. Let dry.
•  Glue the monogram-printed white square on top of the recycled paper square. Let dry.
•  Fold the inner page(s) width-wise and tuck into the inside of the blue program cover so that the pages come together like a booklet.
•  Close the booklet with the pages still inside, and punch two holes exactly on the fold line and 2" to 3" away from the program's top and bottom.
•  Open the booklet and loop the light blue ribbon through the holes. Close the booklet and tie a bow around the outside to bind it together.

* Tip:
Don't have 7 1/2" x 10" paper? Use an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet for the inner pages -- just set the print area for 7 1/2" x 10" and then trim the edges after printing. Print pages 1 and 4 on one side and pages 2 and 3 on the other.
