For our wedding, we combined the program and the favor into a cardboard folder case containing a mix CD that we created for our guests. Another idea would be to create a special movie, slideshow or film clip collection and burn a custom DVD.
Needed for this project:
Cardboard CD cases
Inkjet Sticker paper
Cardstock or heavy paper
Photo Tape or Rubber cement
Publishing software (such as Adobe InDesign or MS Word)
Step 1: Prep
There are three main components that need to be set up:
- The disc case art/contents label
- The program to be attached to the case
- The CD/DVD and label
Step 2: The Case
For the cases we chose white cardboard sleeves.
Case art is all printed on sticker paper. For the exterior art we did a narrow decorative strip - this allowed us to print multiples on one sheet and save a bit on paper. Two music listing panels could fit on one sheet.
After printing, peel and stick to the cases.
Step 3: The Program
The program is a double-sided b/w print on inexpensive white card stock. After being trimmed and folded, the programs are glued into the sleeve with photo tape or rubber cement.
Step 4: The CD or DVD
Create a music playlist or movie and burn your CD or DVD. Set up your label design and print; attach the labels.
Step 5: The Finished Product
Distribute to guests before the ceremony! And, congratulations.
