Make Your Own Florentina Laser Cut Invitations with Dior Bow and Crystal Embellishment
I love all the invitations I create but every now and then, there’s one that really raises the bar for me. As soon as I finished work on this design, I knew it was a special one.
This beautiful laser invitation is really easy to make at home, taking only the smallest amount of skill. Mastering the bow is the hardest part but with a tiny bit of practise, you’ll be flying through them in no time!
I adore the Rose Pink against the ivory background and the addition of a rose pink pearl makes the design really pop.
I loved the design so much that I’ve also made it in ivory so that you can see how changing the ribbon colour can really alter the look and feel of this design.
Whatever you theme, you can choose a ribbon colour to match and make this design especially for your big day. You could also change the embellishment or even chose an alternative laser cut pocket to make it totally unique to you.
Why not give it a go?

We used the following fonts….Dover Heights.
If you plan to add a pearl to the invitation panel, make sure to leave a gap beneath the top line of text.
- Print the wording onto your invitation panel.
- Peel off a self adhesive pearl and stick in to place at the centre of the invitation, underneath the top line of text.
- Lift up the top flap of the laser invitation and slide the printed invite inside. Close the flap over the top.
- Cut a length of ribbon appx. 33cm long (just over twice the width of the invitation). Place the ribbon on a flat surface and put the invitation on top so that it sits in the centre of the ribbon.
Fold both ends of the ribbon in towards the front of the invitation and use the glue gun to stick one end of the ribbon on top of the other to form a band. Cut off any excess ribbon.
- Cut a length of ribbon appx. 16cm long. Fold it in half to find the middle of the ribbon. Now fold the two ends of the ribbon in towards the centre. Use the glue gun to secure both ends of the ribbon at the centre point. Once you have done this, you should have 2 even loops.
- Apply glue from the glue gun to the back centre of your bow. Stick it in to place at the centre of the ribbon band, making sure to cover the join.
- Cut a length of ribbon appx. 11cm long and repeat the above process to make the top layer of the bow. Stick in to place on top of the larger layer of the bow.
- Use your glue gun to apply glue to the back of the embellishment. Press into place at the centre of your ribbon bow.
……and you’ve finished! Awesome!!!!
