View Full Version : Printing on 12x12 vellum? Can you do it?

My DSIL requested I do something with two big picture frames that she and my DB got for their wedding. The frames are really nice matted frames with a 15 x 15 (or so) opening in the mat. She thought putting their wedding vows in there somehow would be awesome. So here's my idea...

I found a fabric that matches their bedroom's bedding very nicely and matches the mat. I thought I would put this as the background and print their wedding vows out in a really pretty font onto sheets of 12 x 12 vellum and put a satiny ribbon at the top of the vellum (picture those ribbons tied through wedding invitations/homemade greeting card, etc).

I really don't want this to LOOK homemade or very "crafty". Any suggestions?

My main question is this: Does anyone know how to or where you can get a 12x12 piece of vellum printed nicely without much cost? Would a printer cost a lot for just two sheets of writing?

Any other creative suggestions are quite welcome...

BTW, I have to kinda do this quick since it's her Christmas present.

I don't know where or if you can, but if the mat opening is 12x12, you could make the fabric 12x12 adn do a smaller sqare in the middle with their vows, maybe 8x8? YOu could print the vellum on 8 1/2 x 11 and cut it to size. Or you could do a nice paper that matches the fabric.
