Creating Your Own Bookmarks

book011.promiseIf you like to read, it may have crossed your mind to get a bookmark. They are pretty handy when it comes to keeping your place in a great book, no matter what the topic!

Creating your own bookmarks is pretty simple and you can come out with one looking very professional, if its done right. The best place to start is by getting yourself a template with a pretty background. In this way, everything is pre-measured for you and there won’t be much guess work on your part.

I, personally like doing it this way better because I can customize it to my heart’s content! OK, so I am also a little bit of a control freak and like to be able to put things where I want them and this allows me to do so!

You will find a plethora of different types of templates for bookmarks for various occasions. Select one that you can fully edit. Once you have the template, you can create bookmarks for giving away as favors for any time of celebration. I’ve seen them distributed at school events, birthdays, baby showers, and even memorials.

I like to finish the bookmark off by laminating and adding a satin ribbon. This little extra step helps make a great finishing touch. When searching online, try the term “bookmark templates” and you should be able to pull up a large selection of online resources.

You can purchase some preprinted cards virtually anywhere and then there are now thank you cards that come in the form of templates. A must have for those who would rather print them whenever they want to.

This photo on the left is an example of a thank you card that was created from a template. Some designs are actually much more beautiful than those that come preprinted and can be purchased at any drug store.

You can also write your own personalized message on the inside so if you have to send out alot of them, it prevents writer’s cramp too! These are basically the two types available for creating thank you cards.

You can match the card design with any funeral programs you created yourself. This will help keep the theme consistent so it is carried on throughout the whole event. Using funeral program templates can be a good idea because often retailers who provide such templates will also have a thank you card template to match.

The Necessity of a Guest or Registry Book

guest booksGuest books may seem like a small detail one can go without when having a party of big event but on the contrary, it is quite the essential item! Guest books allow the host to be able to collect the names of all the attendees or guests that came to the party!

It can be a way for you to obtain addresses and emails from your family and friends. Often when you are hosting a party, its not always feasible for you to be able to talk to everyone, let alone get their address or phone numbers! The guest book enables you to be able to do this all in one simple step! Just placing the guest book at the entrance of an affair will make it a given for people to know to sign in.

Nowadays you can get a guest book virtually anywhere and the web is flowing with different designs and themes for a guest book. Some are very inexpensive and others are quite the keepsake item. You can even make it yourself, if you feel so inclined!

So for your next party. Do not go without having one of these. If its a small, intimate party, you can still have one and maybe get your guests to write a personal note or momento instead of a gift. You can be as creative as you like, let your imagination go and i’m sure you’ll find a thousand uses for one of these!
