- Print the wording onto your invitation panel.
- Place your printed invitation panel inside the laser cut outer.
- Measure a length of twine appx. 75cm long (5 times the width of the invitation). At 75cm, fold it over and double the the length until you have 2 sections measuring 75cm each. Fold it over again and add another length so that you now have 3 lengths of roughly equal size.
- Holding the 3 lengths together, find the middle and feed it over to the back of the laser cut invitation. Slide down the card so that they twine sits roughly in the middle.
- Feed the 2 loose ends of twine in towards the centre of the invitation and tie a knot in the centre. Place your finger in the centre of the knot and tie a second knot over the top.
- With the loose ends, tie a neat bow, teasing into place until you are happy with the size and look. (watch our video if you are struggling to do this). Use a scissors to cut off any excess twine.
- At each side of the card, carefully separate the lengths of string and spread it apart.
……and you’ve finished! Awesome!!!!
