Make Pretty Autumn Wedding Stationery

In the heart of wedding season, it’s difficult to find time to design something beautiful.  So we took a look through our archives to see if there was anything we could inspire you with. I have to say that when I found the images of this Autumn Wedding Stationery, I was blown away.  I can’t believe we’ve never used them before. We made this gorgeous wedding stationery range when our Woburn Paper first arrived in stock.  We loved it so much, we used it as a feature range for a photography shoot and WOW did it turn out well!!  This is a stunning range for Autumn months or rustic weddings.  However, with a change of paper, you can completely change the mood of this range.

TIP:
This range is cheap to make BUT it does require the purchase of a Die Cutting Machine, a magnetic cutting pad and a set of nesting dies.  We used:
Sizzix Big Shot (cheaper alternatives are available)
Little B   Labels Cutting Dies  (this is a set of nesting dies)
A good die cutting machine and some dies are great things to add to your craft tool kit.  With a one off expense at the start, you can massively reduce the overall cost of your wedding stationery!

  1. Assemble the base of your favour box.
  2. Use double sided tape to stick the woburn paper on to the lid of the favour box.  You will need to run the tape around the edges of the lid so that it covers it completely.  Use a scissors to trim off any overlapping paper, carefully following the outline of the box lid.  Fold and assemble the box lid so that the woburn paper is showing.
  3. Print your logo or wording on to a sheet of card.  This is the trickiest part of the design.
    First you need to choose which size die you would like to use.  I used the smallest die in the pack.
    Next you need to measure the large area in the centre of the die (taking out the flourishes at the side and top).  You need to make sure that your logo or wording will fit comfortably into the central area of the die.
    Once you have printed your wording, cut it so that it will fit through the die cutting machine.  This does not have to be precise.
    Place your wording face up on the magnetic cutting mat.
    Place your cutting die face down on top of the wording.  At this stage, you need to make sure that you line the die up so that the wording sits exactly in the centre.

  4. Stick your panel on top of the favour box lid using mini mounting pads.  Make sure that the borders are even.
  5. Peel off a row of 3mm self adhesive pearls.  Starting at one side of the die cut panel, press them in to place around the side of the box, cutting off any excess when you reach the bottom of the lid.  Repeat this process on the opposite side of the die cut panel.  When you have finished, it should look as through the pearls run across the top of the lid.
  6. You can now fill your favour box and put the lid on to the base.

  3. Peel off a row of self adhesive pearls.  Starting in one corner, press the pearls in to place along the outside edge of the Woburn paper.  When you reach a corner, cut off any excess and restart the line so that it follows the line of the paper all the way around.  Keep going until you have a continuous line of pearls around the outside edge of the patterned paper.
