Make Your Own Luxury Laser Cut Invitations With A Triple Dior Bow
This beautiful laser invitation is really easy to make at home, taking only the smallest amount of skill.
We often use Dior bows in our designs because they create such a sense of elegance. But for this invitation, we’ve really pushed the boat out!! We’ve added a TRIPLE Dior Bow! And wow! What an impact it creates!! Adding a small pearl and crystal embellishment is the perfect finishing touch.
The enclosure style of Lavish Laser Cut invitation means that you can also easily add additional guest information or RSVP cards with ease.
I love the neutral tones of this invitation but you can always spice it up by changing the ribbon colour, insert colour or even the embellishment. You can even choose an alternative laser cut invitation and apply the same decoration.
Why not give it a go?

- Print the wording onto your invitation panel.
- Take the end of your 25mm satin ribbon and apply some tape from your tape runner. Fold over and stick in to place on the ribbon appx. 2.5cm along. Where the ribbon joins, run a little more double sided tape and fold the opposite side in towards the middle, sticking it down on the tape. As you do this, make sure that each end is even (you should have appx. 2.5cm each side of the centre. This will form the first loop of your bow.
- Turn the bow so that the front is facing you. Following the line of the bow, press your ribbon against the loop until you come to the end. Fold the ribbon towards the back, allowing an overlap of about 0.5cm (this should form your second loop).
- Holding everything in place, turn your bow back over so that the back is facing you. Run a line of tape across the middle of your bow and press the ribbon against it until you come to the end of the bow.
- Turn the bow back around so that the front is facing you. Following the line of the bow, press your ribbon against the loop until you come to the end. Fold the ribbon towards the back, allowing an overlap of about 0.5cm (this should form your second loop).
- Repeat this process until you have 3 loops each side. On the last loop, you will only be taking the double sided tape and ribbon half way across to finish evenly. Trim off any excess ribbon.
- Turn the bow so that the back is facing you. Run 2 lines of double sided tape along the top centre and bottom centre of the bow (appx. 2cm long. Stick the end of the ribbon onto the bottom line of tape. Fold the ribbon over the front of the bow and back around, sticking the loose end onto the top line of tape. Cut of any overlapping ribbon.
- Open up your laser cut invitation and place your printed panel inside.
- Hold one end of your ribbon at the front centre of your laser cut invitation. Pass the ribbon around the back of the invitation to form a loop. When the two ends of the ribbon meet back at the front, allow an overlap of about 3cm and cut off any excess. Use the tape runner to add 2 lines of tape to stick the ribbon together to form a loop around the invitation.
- Apply two lines of double sided tape across the back of your Dior Bow. Carefully stick in to place on top of your ribbon band (at the front centre of your invitation). Adjust so that it sits exactly in the middle of the invite.
- Use your glue gun to place a small amount of glue on the back of the pearl and crystal embellishment. Carefully stick this in to place at the centre of your bow.
And you’re finished….don’t you feel proud of yourself (I definitely do 😉 !!!
