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.
