Ok, girls … what did you do when you were younger when you had a piece of paper and a pen handy? Write a note? Scribble a drawing? Make a cootie catcher? I can be accused of doing all three, but I can remember loving it when one of my friends would come up with a fun cootie catcher … there were always fun surprises laying under the flaps. (If you need a schooling in the world of what on earth I am talking about, there is a great explanation here.)
When I saw these cute catchers from Darling Girl Paper on Etsy, I did a “no way” because not only did they remind me of grade school, BUT I also think that they are one of the most clever, fun ideas!!! I hope that you will agree. These would be so entertaining at a reception! A table can play together, or just a few people can join in on the fun.
There are several different kinds to choose from, and I am just highlighting a few of Darling Girl Paper‘s creative ideas. I also included the links (highlighted) so that you can read more details about what exactly is inside of each catcher.
Lucky in love! This wedding program is sure to keep your guests happy before the wedding no matter how early they arrive. The center of the catcher reveals the order of events for the wedding. How cute to be able to pass these out as guests arrive!
What a creative way to thank your guests. Leave these on the table, and when they play the inside is opened to reveal a sweet note of thanks.
This one is a photo scavenger hunt catcher. It asks all sorts of questions about the bride and groom, and then the guests can have fun taking the requested photos.
Here is one that doubles as a place card … what a creative idea!! I can just picture guests milling around together, or someone can even play the game by themselves as this one gives all sorts of personalized information about the bride and groom. What a great way to test the knowledge of your guests and have them on a quest to find out trivia about you.
See? Adorable, aren’t they? These are completely customized, and Darling Girl Paper is able to offer choices of both font and color in addition to adding the personalized questions and text inside. What a unique thing to have at your wedding! Also, when you place on order for a catcher you will receive a PDF, so it is up to you if you print off one per table or one per guest. That is part of the beauty of it!
Be sure to check out Darling Girl Paper because that is one of the requirements of this contest. Your first comment must be about your favorite cootie catcher (or set of catchers).
