If you're thinking of business cards or return address labels, vistaprint has some great deals.

What about doing something using loteria cards?

My husband and I are moving overseas (to the Middle East) for two years. Furnished housing will be provided, but it's very plain and somewhat ugly. I'm looking for some ideas on what to bring with us to help decorate- we can't paint the walls, and have limited weight allowances. Oh, there's also an Ikea there, which is a great plus, but not the end-all and be-all of decorating, by any stretch.

Some ideas I've already had:

-Photos. Lots and lots of photos from home.

-Raserbate some cool images, to cover up wall space. But what images?

-We have three gorgeous saris from our wedding, which will make good tablecloths or curtains.

-Bring a large jar of ModPodge, to decoupage ugly second-hand furniture or super-plain IKEA stuff

Any other ideas?

If you do the wedding wishbowl, you could use a plastic trick-or-treating pumpkin to hold all the cards.

Thanks for the ideas! We were travelling all summer, so we haven't done much planning, but here's what we've come up with so far, in case it would be useful to anyone:

Decorations: we're using papel picado and cheesy but cute paper garlands. The hall is a folkart space as it is and doesn't need much decoration.

Tables: we're using origami cranes and paper hearts the way many people use rose petals- sprinkled around the centerpieces. We've made 160 cranes so far...840 to go! (we may end up having a 'come drink beer and fold cranes' party sometime in February if we don't get them done in time).

Guest Book Table: I haven't decided what we'll use for place cards, but we might do paper cocktail umbrellas with people's names on them. We're also making wedding cootie catchers and putting them in a big glass vase for people to take one as they come in.

And of course, we'll have a crafty table for people to decorate their guest book page!

Hi y'all. I'm getting married in March, and since I love the look of Mexican papel picado, and we want to make origami cranes for good luck, we've decided that maybe a paper theme is the way to go. (Uh..b/c what else do they have in common? Not much!)

 I've already read the paper flower thread below, and am thinking that might be a way to go.  We've been brainstorming a little, and we were thinking that we could make paper-bag luminaries for the guest book  table, and maybe a paper-chain with love quotes? But frankly, I know y'all could help us do better.

We're getting married in a funky art-space, so we don't need tons of decorations, and it certainly isn't going to be very formal. That said, I don't want it to look like an elementary school dance, either.

Any ideas?

Ooh, lovely. Was the paper and vellum for your invites pre-cut? Were those inserts layered like that, or did you just spread them out for the picture?

I'm thinking of doing something similar for centerpieces for my wedding- using those tall candles that usually have Saints' pictures on them. (They have blank ones at the dollar stores around here). I have a Xyron sticker maker, so I was going to make vellum stickers and put them on the candles, probably of famous quotes about marriage.

Your stuff is cool! Keep it coming.

Actually, the Value Village in the Heights closed.

How about like a sultry pinup girl  on the 'dirty' side and a fresh-cheeked maiden on the other? (A virgin/whore kinda thing?) Or a Bicycle for clean vs. an SUV for dirty? Or the same image of a naked woman (or man) with her bikini drawn in w/black sharpie on one side for "clean" and not for "dirty". (Like those pens w/the disappearing bikinis).

It's in the 'Anything Goes' section.
