How to Make… Colour Pop Wedding Stationery

Colour Pop Wedding Stationery DIY Wedding Stationery

Colour Pop Wedding Stationery…Fresh and fun with a pop of colour

It is so easy to get used to designing in neutrals. But adding a splash of colour gets us really excited. That’s why we have put together this fun and vibrant range of Colour Pop Wedding Stationery. The good thing is you can easily recreate at home. Just change the colours and you create something completely unique to your special day.

This range does require a Sizzix Machine and dies.  It can seem like a large one off expense but if you use it across all your wedding stationery, it will work out really economical (much more economical than purchasing embellishments).  And the best thing about the Sizzix Machine is that you can have fun with it for years to come.

Here’s how we made this eye catching range:

INVITATION

For each invitation you will need:

1/2 sheet of A4 Card in Matt White  BUY
1/4 sheet of A4 Card in Cerise  BUY
1/5 sheet of A4 Card in Pearlised Turquoise  BUY
1/5 sheet of A4 Card in Pearlised Plum  BUY
Appx 20 Self Adhesive Pearls in Pink and Lilac(various sizes)  BUY

 

Other things you might need:

Paper Trimmer  BUY
Hot melt glue gun  BUY
Sizzix machine  BUY
Sizzix Bigz Die Flower Layers with Heart Petals die set  BUY
Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper (rounded)…….this is not totally necessary but it does add a lovely finishing touch!  BUY

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Print your wording on to the Matt Off White Paper and cut down to size.  The finished size should be 12.5cm wide x 17.5cm high.  Remember to keep the wording set in the top half of the page with the bottom half of the page left blank (this is where your flowers will be stuck)

(You should be able to print 2 invitation panels on each sheet if you use a landscape format)

Use your Crop-a-dile Corner Chomper to punch rounded corners on each side of the invitation.

Use your Sizzix Machine and die to make as many flowers as you can fit on to each sheet of coloured A4 card.  To get as many flowers as possible, I like to cut the card into squares slightly larger than the shape of each flower.

Use your glue gun to stick and layer the flowers on to the card until you are happy with the way they look (It’s often useful to lay them all out before you stick them down and then pick them up and glue them one by one).  To add a bit more fun, it’s really nice to layer them as you go along.

Peel off various sized self adhesive pearls and stick them in the centre of each flower.  To add a nice finishing touch, scatter a few self adhesive pearls around the flowers (but beware of using too many!)

So now you’re gorgeous invitation is finished!

TIP……you can use any left over die cut flowers to decorate other items of stationery or for finishing touches on your special day.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Print your wording on to matt white card and cut down to size.  The finished size should be 10.5cm wide x 21cm high.
Use your Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to round the corners of the card.

Cut a strip of card 5cm wide x 23cm long.  Cut a second strip of card 4.5cm wide x 23cm long.  Use Double sided tape to stick the two pieces of card together at the centre. But make sure you do not stick more than a 5cm width. (or it will pucker when you fold it)

Hold your double strip of card across the middle of your menu. Make sure that you have an equal overlap at each side.  Fold the loose edges of the strip carefully around to the back of the menu. Then use double sided tape to stick it together. (Remember to glue the strip so that it forms a wrap. But do not stick this on to the actual menu or you will not be able to take it off).

Use your Sizzix Machine and die to make the following flowers:  1 Large Flower in Plum,  2 Medium flowers in turquoise, 2 small flowers in Cerise and one small flower in plum. I like to cut the card into squares slightly larger than the shape of each flower to maximise the amount I can get from each sheet.

Use your glue gun to stick the large plum flower to the top left of the wrap (you only need to put glue in the centre).  Stick the turquoise flower on top and finish with the small cerise flower.  Add a self adhesive lilac pearl to the centre.

Tuck your medium turquoise flower slightly under the bottom right of the large plum flower to create an overlapping effect.  Glue in to place, stick the small plum flower on top and add a self adhesive lilac pearl.

Tuck your small cerise flower slightly under the top right of the medium turquoise flower to create an overlapping effect.  Glue in to place and add a self adhesive lilac pearl.
