{DIY} Cootie Catcher Wedding Menus

I love these cootie catcher menus for weddings. They add a touch of whimsy to any style of wedding, and a bit of nostalgia too.  And they are really easy to do, if you are a DIY’er.

{Materials}
Paper in the color of your choice
Ink in the color of your choice
A decent printer
     (or just print one and have them color copied on your paper at a Kinkos or other copy place)
bone folder (or similar tool)
A friend to help you fold them (because it gets really tedious to fold fold fold) – if you are having a 300+ person wedding, you may not want to go this route.  I had around 140 people.
{Instructions}
1.  You either need to design a template for yourself, or you can use ones I found here (for powerpoint)
      or here (for Photoshop).  Then personalize it to fit your wedding.
2.  Print the number that you need (plus a few extras) or print one and have them copied.
3.  Then fold them.  Since that part can be tricky too, I found this video to help you!
