Next: the creative bit!
Now onto the fun part!
You will need:
- – laser cut outers
- – coloured inlays
- – printed inserts
- – a guillotine (or a cutting knife & metal ruler)
- – thin double sided tape (we can supply this)
- – any decorations you’re going to use (ribbons, diamantes etc.)
- – sharp scissors
- – superglue & tweezers (for diamantes & pearls)
Trim down your printed outers using the guillotine (or knife & ruler).
Fold these in half & stick a piece of double sided tape to the back of the invitation.
Fold your coloured inlays in half & remove the backing from the double sided tape on your printed insert.
Stick this carefully inside the colour inlay.
Using the guillotine (or knife/ruler) trim the edges of the inlay/insert to tidy them up.
Stick another piece of double sided tape to the back of the coloured insert.
Remove the backing from the tape & stick the insert to the back of the inside of the laser cut outer.
Add ribbon by looping it around the invitation & tying it in a small bow at the top of the front.
Trim the ends of the ribbon with sharp scissors for a neat finish.
Add diamantes or pearls using a tiny dot of super glue.
Use tweezers to gently place the decorations on top of the glue.
Leave your invitations out for awhile to dry (make sure they’re not touching each other!)
Write your guests names on your invitations & their addresses on the envelopes.
Pop a stamp on them & they’re ready to send!
