We used the following fonts …. Cherry Script and Copperplate Gothic Light.
Print the Invitation front onto one side of the insert and the Invitation wording onto the other side.
- Slot the printed invitation panel into the Lucy Laser Cut Pocket.
- Pull of a length of ribbon and tie a neat bow. I like to form 2 loops (bunny ears) and then tie them in a knot to form a bow. Tease the bow in to place by tightening and loosening until you are happy with the size and shape. Cut off the excess ribbon at each side. It looks nice if you cut it into an inverted “v” shape.
- Use your glue gun to apply glue to the back centre of your bow.
Lift the top section of the laser cut panel away from the back of the invitation. Hold your finger behind the top part of the panel.
Press your bow in to place at the top centre of the laser cut pattern, keeping your fingers behind it until the glue has dried. This will stop any glue leaking onto the invitation behind.
(As you do this, be careful not to burn yourself.)
- Use your glue gun to apply a small amount of glue to the back of your Sterling Embellishment. Press into place on top of the bow. Press down until the glue has dried (about 5 – 10 seconds)
And I’m happy to say that’s all you need to do. In just a few easy steps, you’ve made a really beautiful invitation. You should be feeling pretty proud of yourself.
