How to Make...Eye Catching Floral Wedding Stationery


MAKE THIS GORGEOUS RANGE WITH OUR STEP BY STEP GUIDE
Our new Alyssa Paper is so vibrant and eye-catching, we couldn't wait to put it to the test.  We wanted to show you how you can make this gorgeous eye catching floral wedding stationery yourself. It didn't take us long to design and make this simple but really effective range and we're sure it won't take you very long to replicate it.
Personally, I LOVE the overall look and feel of this range but I get that these colours may not be your thing.  So if you love the design but the colours don't work for you, it's not a problem....just change the backing paper and away you go.


 

HERE’S HOW WE MADE THIS RANGE:



FLAT INVITATION INVITATION

1/2 sheet of Alyssa Paper  (click here)
1/3 sheet A4 card in Plum  (click here)
1/3 sheet of Matt off white card  (click here)
appx. 1.5 meters of orange hemp or jute string


Other Things You Might Need:

Scissors


Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of Matt Off White Card 13cm x 18cm.
  2. Cut a piece of Plum Card 13cm x 18cm.  Use your tape runner or double sided tape to stick this on to your Matt off White Card.  (This will make the card more sturdy)
  3. Cut a second piece of plum card 13cm wide x 7.5cm high.  Stick this across the middle of your card.
  4. Print your wording on to Matt off white card and cut down to size. The finished size should be 6.5cm high x 13cm wide (we used the fonts Parisienne mixed with Mrs Eaves Petit Caps).  Stick the printed panel on top of the plum card making sure that the top and bottom borders are even.  Your invitation is now finished.  You just need to add a bow!
  5. Cut a piece of cord appx. 1.5 meters long.  Fold it in half.  Place the folded cord on to a flat surface and place your invitation in the middle.  Wrap both ends of the cord around to the front of the card and tie a bow in the middle (just like you'd tie your shoe lace!).
  6. Cut off any loose ends.  It's as easy as that!!!

  10. Pull the loop tight enough to hold the loose ends in place.
