Plan Your Event the Crafty Way!
I don’t think many people associate party planning or wedding planning with crafting. However, as the cost of party favors, wedding invitations, place cards and the like have gone up, it seems more and more people are taking the do-it-yourself approach.
Here you will find ideas and patterns. If you look at some of the results pictured in these articles you will see that you can obtain professional results with a little effort.
Also the major computer printer manufacturers have tried to make this easier by providing free patterns and templates for all sorts of party goods. Visit Computer Crafting Articles for more information.
