So Here Are The Instructions……
- Use your paper trimmer to cut your Pearlised Ivory card to the following measurements: 17.5cm x 12cm 14.5cm x 9cm
- Use your paper trimmer to cut your pearlised navy card to 15cm x 9.5cm. (you should be able to cut 3 panels out of each sheet)
- Download the INVITATION TEMPLATE. Type your wording in the printable areas. (We used the following font……..Edwardian Script).
Print onto the Smaller Pearlised Ivory Card Panel.
- Use your tape runner to stick tape around the outside edge and across the middle of the navy card panel. Stick this in to place on top of the larger pearlised ivory panel, making sure that the borders are even.
- Use the tape runner to stick the printed invitation panel on top of the pearlised navy card.
- Open up your laser cut invite and place the completed printed invitation panel inside.
- Cut a length of ribbon appx. 70cm long. Place the ribbon on a flat surface. Position your invitation face up in the centre of the ribbon.
- Pull the loose ends of the ribbon in towards the centre of the invitation. Tie a neat knot. Tie a second knot over the top so that you have a double knot. You can now tie your bow. This may take a little fiddling but essentially you are just using the same method as tying a shoe lace. If you are struggling, watch the video tutorial above.
- Now all you need to do is neatly cut off the loose ends of the ribbon.
It really was as easy as that! You now have a beautiful invitation ready to send out to one of your special guests. It’s time to get excited!
