Make Organza Polka Dot Wedding Stationery

When I started work on this design, I had big plans to add some printing and embellishments.  But as soon as the bow was tied, it just said it all.  It was practically begging me not to add anything extra to it.  The bow is such a statement on it’s own, it doesn’t need any additional extras.
The great thing about this design is that it’s just so adaptable.  You can change the ribbon to any colour, print or texture to make it totally personal to you.  I love the navy and white polka dot but really look forward to seeing how you will make it special for your big day.

Why not give it a go?

So Here Are The Instructions……

Instructions

Before you start, assemble the flat packed greetings card box base and lid.

  • Print your wording on to pearlised white paper and cut down to size.  The finished size should be appx. 11.5cm x 11.5cm.  You should be able to fit 2 inserts on each A4 sheet.
    (TIP – If you are printing on an Inkjet Printer, swap the Pearlised White Paper for Matt White or Matt off White to achieve better results).

    TEMPLATE
  • Cut a piece of pearlised navy card 14.5cm x 14.5cm
  • Cut a second piece of pearlised navy card 12cm x 12cm.  Use your tape runner to stick this smaller panel to the centre of the larger panel you just cut.
  • Use your tape runner to stick the printed invitation panel to the centre of the smaller pearlised navy panel.  You can now place this inside the wallet.
  • Place your ribbon on a flat surface. Put your invitation wallet on top of the ribbon. Making sure that the ribbon is roughly in the centre of the card, pull the loose ends around to the front and tie a knot in the centre.  You can now make a neat bow. It is helpful to use a small amount of glue from the glue gun to stick the loops of the bow in place at the front of the wallet. This will keep it in shape and looking nice and neat.
  • Trim the loose ends of ribbon so that they are in line with the edges of your card.  If you cut the ends in to an inverted “v” shape, this will stop the ribbon fraying.  You can now place your finished invitation inside your invitation box and it’s all ready to send!
