Hi, it’s Anna Skye here again from Download & Print with another gorgeous free printable exclusive to Boho brides. This is an Accordion Wedding Program and I’ve made it nice and easy to customise in your wedding colours. See the tips below for my tricks on how to do this. The nice thing about this program is that the template prints in black and white, which makes it hands down the cheapest way to print your own stationery. But that doesn’t mean we forfeit style in this DIY project! The other nice thing about this program is the accordion style folds small enough to fit in a purse, which all the ladies will love you for. Now enough with the small talk, lets get crafty…
STEP 1) Download the template files and open in MS Word. Customise with your details. The scrip font used in the example is Parisienne and the information text is written in Trajan Pro, both of which are available for a free download. Print the files on A4 cream card stock. I recommend printing one program first to check for typos, before sending them all to print. You can also take the file to a copy shop for reproduction, but print one copy at home first just to be on the safe side. If you decide to use a copy shop, take along this release letter stating that you have permission to print the file.
STEP 2) Score along the fold lines using your scoring tool or the back of your utility knife and a ruler. Do not cut! This will give you sharp creases and help the program fold flat.
STEP 3) Accordion fold the inside pages and trim along the cut lines using your paper cutter or scissors. You will be able to work more quickly with a paper cutter and will get a straighter edge, but scissors will work fine if this is what you have on hand.
STEP 4) Again, using your scoring tool or the back of your utility knife, score the fold on the back cover to a sharp crease. Trim along the cut lines. You should end up with two pieces, the front cover which is a single panel, and the back cover which is a double panel.
STEP 5) Attach the front and back covers to the inside pages using double sided tape. Tape works better than glue and is less messy!
STEP 6) Close the program in an accordion fold. Tie ribbon in your accent colour around the program and trim the bow tails to the same width as the program.
STEP 7) Step back and admire your work.
Thanks so much to Anna from Download and print for this gorgeous downloadable DIY Tutorial. Anna will be back in a months time with another FREE download for you.
