DIY Week #1 Print Your Own

The biggest trend this season is DIY. It's a movement that's been in the making for a couple of years now, and the credit crunch was the tipping point. Crafting is booming! But what if you're not that good with a glue gun? Worry not, there's loads of DIY projects out there for the beginner, and all this week we'll have features to get you going.

So let's kick off with invitations. If you're super-creative you'll design your own, but there's plenty of templates out there in the blogosphere for free, and even more available on Etsy to buy, personalise and print at home. But what printer should you use? Fab blog DIY Union has the answers. Graphic Designer Leslie recommends the Epson Stylus Photo R280 Photo Printerand has hundreds of print-hints on paper, ink and lasers.

Right, now you've got the know-how, it's time for the fun bit. Choosing your template. Check these out for size.....and the best thing? They're all FREE!
