How to Make...Lily Laser Cut Wedding Stationery

Make Gorgeous Lily Laser Cut Wedding Stationery

Although we love all our Laser Cut Invitations, the Lily Laser Cut Wedding Stationery has to be one of my personal favourites. So imagine how excited I was when we received a delivery of laser cut panels to match the invitations. The beautiful panels are a great (not to mention low cost) way of creating coordinating wedding stationery.
The best thing about our blank laser cut ranges is that even if you are not that creative, you can still make really striking wedding stationery that will blow your guests minds. This range is a perfect example of what you can achieve.
I love the contrast of the Navy against the matt off white. But if Navy doesn’t work for you, just change the colour of the card and ribbon...simple!

So Here Are The Instructions……


INVITATION

You Will Need:

1 x Lily Laser Cut Invitation  (click here)
1 x Matt off white insert  (click here)
1 sheet of pearlised navy A4 card  (click here)
1/3 sheet of matt off white A4 card  (click here)
1 x Alexis  (click here)
appx. 70cm of 16mm Navy Satin Ribbon  (click here)

 
You Will Also Need:
 
Paper Trimmer
Tape Runner or double sided tape  (click here)
Glue Gun  (click here)
Scissors


 

Instructions:

  1. Firstly print your wording on to Matt Off White Card and Cut to size. The finished size should be 15cm wide x 9.5cm high. You should be able to fit 3 panels on each sheet of card if you lay it out carefully.
  2. Secondly put a piece of Pearlised Navy Card 18cm x 12.5cm. Stick this on to the inside panel of your laser cut card using double sided tape (or your tape runner)
  3. Cut a second piece of Pearlised Navy Card 15.5cm x 10cm. Stick this on top of the larger navy panel (make sure that all the borders are even)
  4. Stick your wording panel on top of the Navy Card.
  5. Cut a length of navy ribbon appx. 40cm long. Lay it on a flat surface and place your invitation on top of it. The ribbon will need to match the centre of your card.
  6. Fold the edges of the ribbon in to the centre front of the laser cut invitation. Hold down the left side and use your glue gun to secure the right side on top. Make sure that you do not spill any glue on to the laser cut invitation!! The join should be at the front centre of your card (it will soon be covered with a bow). Make sure that you don’t pull it too tight as you secure it. You need to make sure it’s tight enough to stay on the card but loose enough to slide off.
  7. Use the remaining ribbon to tie a neat bow (I like to use the bunny ear method). Carefully glue your bow on to the front centre of the ribbon, making sure not to spill any glue on to the laser cut card.
  8. Lastly use the glue gun to stick the Alexis embellishment on to the centre of the bow.
