I did numerous searches on this, and couldn't find anything.

I remember downloading a template someone posted, but i can't figure out how to use it. I'm only sort of computer savy.

 

So, does anyone have specific tips for DIY CD labels? Online, the are looking to be about $1.30 each - so I might just have to go that route. At least it saves the headache, right?

buy a pack of Avery CD labels and put the number into word. Then you can copy and paste your monogram or whatever you want on it. I just did a TON of these for work and it's pretty simple. PM me if you need help.

I got the avery labels, but I guess I'm bad at formatting what I want on the template?! I typically can figure things out.

How do you write at the bottom of the template (for the songs)? Do I need to create a text box? I have to admit, I'm close to just buying labels already done because It's taking me way too long.

it can be tricky...but I'm sure when you're done it'll be well worth the effort to know you did them yourself.

You do have to enter a text box over the picture send the picture to the back so the font shows up.

Doing a google search might help too!

So, I read through this thread: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t39336

And I've been working on this, but when I use a text box, it leaves a black square around it. I'm sorry if this is the simplest thing to do, and I swear I'm normally pretty good on figuring things out, but I just can't seem to do this. I'm trying to place a palm tree sort in the background and then at the top put our names and date and then at the bottom list the songs - not too complicated.

If there is any step by step instructions out there, please send them my way!

Thanks for all the help girls!

When you draw a text box and you don't want the outline...go to "format" and then under shape outline select no outline. A grey dotted box will show up while you edit it but then go away as soon as you click away from there.

Once you have the background in place remember to send your text to the front. If you have publisher I find it's a bit easier than word because it's made for editing.

Good luck! You sound like me when I tried to do a monogram...definitely wound uup paying someone to do in the end haha.

hey! I completely forgot to tell you (and I wish I would've because it will make your life easier) there is a program online for Avery -google: Avery design and print online. It has templates, designs, and step by step directions. It'll make it a breeze to get these done!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
