here's a pic (but a bad one) of my menus, eyelets at top of both. wound up using design at right, and put dark raffia between eyelets. then stuck one glue dot at bottom so that part stayed attached.

Has anyone tried the spray on glues? I'm thinking it would be easy, and wouldn't bubble like regular glue, but I'm not sure it would stand up to much heat, humidity, etc.

Spray on glue gets pretty hard and won't bend much after it dries. When you try to bend it the papers usually separate.

cheese_diva - Did you have a placecard for each person vs. couple? If for couple, what happened if they ordered two different entrees? I should probably ask my venue what they need from me in this regard.

Just to add my $0.02 to the glue debate (late, of course, but thought it might be good for posterity/anyone doing a search): when I made my invites, I asked the woman who sold me the DIY kits and she suggested fabric glue, such as "Fabri-Tac".

 

I have to say, I was surprised by how well it worked! It doesn't get paper wet, like most glues do; it doesn't bubble; it lets you slide the pieces around slightly to readjust orientation (unlike tape); it dries really well, and if you get a bead on something you didn't intend to, you can just wait a couple of minutes and it peels right off.

 

We were duly impressed. =)

How long did it take you per invitation out of curiosity? I ended up just going for getting them done professionally, but I'm wondering for any other projects I have, how long it'll take per piece, since I have so many freaking guests...

Angela, great idea color coding the entree selections! I'm a compulsive color coder, I'm surprised I didn't think of that.

 

Bre - I used the scrap book glue from Michaels. No problems with bleeding/bubbles but both of my pieces were cardstock. I also just glued the outside edges, making a perimeter, with nothing in the middle.

Sorry I missed this.. we did one per person.. We asked for menu choice on the RSVP cards.
