Looking for a way to add some pizazz to your printed materials? Consider one of these crafty techniques for your save the date cards, invitations, programs, menus or anything else to want to make extra special.

Backer cards are an easy way to enhance your entire suite or simply emphasize an important piece. They are perfect in accent colors and various textures.

Pocketfolds come in handy when you have multiple pieces to an invitation suite. They keep everything neat and orderly and look great too!

Envelopes liners also work well with accent colors and can also incorporate a special design or icon.

Edging is a sweet technique to add a pop of color around the “edges” of your paper goods!


Rhinestones, shells and other beads can add an extra dimension and are great for menus, programs and other single piece elements. That’s my own engagement party invitation in the bottom right. We added a sparkle to each invite!

And our most commonly used “extra touches” are ribbons and belly bands.
