If you are a crafty-sort who enjoys creating beautiful things that reflect your personal style, you’ve got to check out Martha Stewart’s collection of templates and clip art. You can download all sorts of gorgeous things, such as tag & label templates, place card templates, favor packaging templates, deocration templates, programs, menus, and stationary templates!
Here are some of my favorite ideas…
Just Married Signs
This is perfect for your reception decor or getaway car (or carriage)! Definitely classier than smearing “Just Married” on your windshield with lipstick!
Create your own photo booth with an oversize canvas backdrop. Download this design and take it to a copy center that can print the large file (like FedEx)
Paper Magnolia Centerpieces
You can create these stunning centerpieces all by yourself! Download the petal template to make the perfect crepe-paper magnolias.
To make these sweet luminarias, inspired by a cake-decorating stencil, download the template and print onto 11-by-17 paper. Fold the paper like an accordion or wrap around a glass cylinder.
This project is a piece of cake to construct, and also incredibly budget-friendly. Print the clip-art borders (use text-weight paper) and cut them to fit an assortment of round boxes and lids.
Flower Girl Parasols
Pile on even more cuteness! Instead of having scattering blossoms as they amble down the aisle, your flower girls can be the blossoms by carrying these petal-topped rice-paper umbrellas!
Floral Paper Fans
Keep your guests comfortable at outdoor weddings with these lovely handmade fans. They features a floral motif on one side and a quote from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet on the other. After you download the template, you can have a calligrapher add a monogram, then print onto medium-weight paper and cut out. Glue a wooden ice cream spoon between the two sides, and tie on a pretty ribbon.
