- Print the Invitation, RSVP and Front tag document onto one sheet of Pearlised White A4 paper. You will then need to use your paper trimmer to cut each item down to size. You will need to cut just inside the outlines provided on the template so that the finished document sizes are as follows:
Invitation Panel – 9cm x 14.5cm
RSVP Panel – 10.5cm x 8cm
Front Tag – 5cm x 5cm
- Use your paper trimmer to cut a panel of Pearlised White A4 paper 16.5cm x 10.5cm. Print your Guest Information wording onto this panel.
- Use your paper trimmer to cut a section of Blush Pink Paper 18cm x 12.3cm.
Open the flap of the invitation and use high tack tape to stick the blush pink panel to the blank white section of the invitation. When you close the invitation, you should see the blush pink panel showing through the laser cut detailing.
- Use your Paper Trimmer to cut the Blush Pink Card To the following sizes:
17.5cm x 12cm (invitation panel)
17.5cm x 11.5cm (guest information panel)
5.5cm x 5.5cm (front tag panel)
- Use your paper trimmer to cut the silver glitter card to the following sizes:
9.5cm x 15cm (invitation panel)
11.5cm x 9cm (rsvp panel)
6.5cm x 6.5cm (front tag panel)
- Use your high tack tape to stick the largest blush pink card panel to the inside of the invitation. Stick the largest silver glitter card panel on top of the blush pink card, making sure your borders are even.
Finally, stick the printed invitation panel on top of the silver glitter card.
- Use your high tack tape to stick the printed information sheet onto the blush pink card panel and slot inside the pocket.
- Use the hight tack tape to stick the printed RSVP panel onto the silver glitter card panel and slot inside the pocket.
- Use your high tack tape to stick the Small Blush Pink card panel on top of the small silver glitter card panel, making sure that your borders are even. Stick the printed front tag onto the blush pink card.
- Cut a section of ribbon appx. 27cm cm long. Place it onto a flat surface. Close your invitation and place it in the middle of the ribbon. Fold each side of the ribbon in towards the centre and use a small pice of high tack tape to stick one end on top of the other. You only need an overlap of about 2cm so you can try off any excess.
As you stick the ribbon into place, make sure that you leave it loose enough to move but not too lose so that it falls of the invitation.
- Place your front tag face down on a flat surface. Run a line of high tack tape across the centre (horizontally). Lift your tag and carefully place it on top of the ribbon so that the tape sticks to the ribbon but not to the invitation. Position your front tag so that it sits directly in the middle of the invitation.
And that’s it….sit back and enjoy!!!
