Sponsored post: Minted DIY program challenge

Minted recently concluded their latest challenge, this time all about the wedding program…this in particular was an interesting challenge because they invited bloggers to take part and try their hand at customizing and DIYing the heck out of existing designs.  The only requirements were you had to figure out a way to bind the program, and whatever you wanted to do on the backside was fair game.  Best design wins $1000, not too shabby!

I thought the winners all did an excellent job [you can check out the winning entries here], but I thought I’d share with you some of my favs too…

Victoria from A Subtle Revelry used a cute button to tie the program together, I really loved the ombre stitched LOVE on the back of the program…maybe a little too labor intensive if you’re doing a couple hundred of these, but still an excellent idea!

Ruth from Not So Cookie Cutter played up the ampersand and stripes on this DIY wedding program, and it was a super simple but effective way of tying in a potential theme [easy to do with ampersands or stripes].

Lehan from Lehan Paper Design added some simple black grommets to this wedding program which was completely in tune with my modern tastes.  Im a big fan of grommets, and love that they come in a ton of colors…though I think the black really worked well with the black and white cover.

The little black/white twine tassel that Barnbride came up with was totally adorable and perfectly matched with the striped wedding program.  Maybe a little more time than you’re wiling to spend, but you could always buy ready-made tassels, or start an assembly line with some helpers for a similar look.
