DIY Bachelorette Itineraries!

Just got back from the bachelorette party in Vegas! So, as promised, here is the DIY project I worked on to make the itineraries for the weekend:

Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of and really love fabric invites and save the dates, so I decided to go that route for the itineraries!

    
    

    
     Here’s the DIY process for creating these itineraries!

  1. I went to JoAnn Fabrics and bought some fabric in the colors that I knew my friend was doing for her wedding..
  2. Then I bought some paper to print out the actual itinerary for the weekend on. This bamboo paper at Paper Source is so lovely..and easy to print on! I picked out a fun font and printed out the itineraries.
  3. Then, I cut the printed itinerary and glued it onto another sheet of shimmery paper that I also got from Paper Source.
  4. After the 2 pieces of paper were glued together, I cut the fabric to fit the size of the pages. It was easier to just cut all of the fabric for each itinerary at once to save time later.
  5. Once the fabric was cut and lined up with the paper, I cut a slit down the center of the fabric to make sure all of the text would show up in the “window”.
  6. Then came the tricky part! Here’s where your Mom or Mother-in-law can help out - we used a sewing machine and picked a contrasting color thread to sew the fabric to the paper. Make sure you keep a straight line for the stitching!
  7. And voila - you have this fabulous fabric-stitched itinerary! My Mother-in-law wants to do this again for invites - so fun!


Here’s the inspiration - it was from a NY Fashion Week Show invite a few years ago:
   
A great project to work on if you have some spare time, and something your friend will love!

It’s Wedding Week! We had an itinerary and this custom map created for our guests to help them out with directions to our events, and to excite them about what to expect at our wedding!
