Make 3 Different Sparkly Pocket Invites

1 Sparkly Pocket, 3 different Styles

Have a Go Yourself for our 3 Different Sparkly Pocket Invites!

When our Glitter Pockets first arrived in stock, we were blown away. They looked amazing before we added anything to them so it was a challenge to make them look even better. I think we did a pretty good job!   Using the Rose Gold, Silver and Gold square wallets, we’ve designed three completely different looks to inspire you. Have a go yourself. The results are amazing!

 

TIP……..I’m sure we don’t need to tell you that you can sway the colours around easily to make an invitation that works perfectly for your special day.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Print your invitation wording on to A4 Card and cut down to size. The finished size should be 14cm x 14cm with a gap of at least 1.5cm at the top. (If you lay it out carefully, you should be able to fit 2 invitation panels on to each sheet of card)
  2. Slot your invitation inside the wallet. Peel off a 6mm self adhesive pearl and stick it to the top centre of your invitation.
  3. Print your front panel wording on to a sheet of A4 Rose Gold Glitter paper and cut down to size. The finished size should be the full width of your A4 sheet (29.7cm) x 5cm high. You will need to print in a landscape format. You should be able to print at least 3 panels on to each sheet.
  4. Cut a piece of A4 Matt off white paper the full width of the A4 sheet and 5.5cm high. Using your tape runner, run a line of double sided tape all around the outside edge of the panel. Starting with one end of your panel placed at the back centre of your wallet, press in to place all the way around the wallet so that you meet back where you started. Press firmly in to place.
  5. Take your printed panel and place it face down. Use your tape runner, to run a line of double sided tape all around the outside edge. Turn back around.
  6. With the front of your wallet facing you, press your panel in to place so that the wording sits in this middle of the wallet, on top of the matt off white panel you have just stuck in to place. Make sure that the wording is placed so that you have an equal border each side. Turn the wallet around so that you can continue sticking the rest of the panel in to place.
  7. Peel off a row of self adhesive pearls. Starting at a point on the back, press the pearls in to place along the top edge of the printed glitter panel. When the row ends, peel off another row and continue the row by sticking it in to place. When the ends meet, cut off any excess.
  8. Repeat this on the bottom edge of the printed glitter panel.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Print your invitation wording and front “Invitation” panel on to A4 Card and cut down to size. The finished sizes should be:

Invitation – 14cm x 14cm with a gap of at least 1.5cm at the top.

“Invitation” Panel – appx. 6cm x 2cm

(You should be able to fit at least 2 of each on to an A4 sheet)

 

  1. Cut a piece of Mirror Card 0.5cm wider and 0.5cm longer than the Invitation panel. Use your tape runner to stick the invitation panel on to the Mirror Card. Once this is done, you can again use your tape runner to stick the completed panel to the bottom right of the wallet.
  2. Use the glue gun to stick the pretty embellishments in to place on the front of the wallet. Space them evenly across the space but at different levels (see image)
  3. Peel off a Horizon Crystal Row sticker and cut out the large crystal at the centre. You are now left with 2 pieces. Take one of the pieces and press in to place on top of one of the Pretty embellishments with the largest crystal sitting next to the embellishment. Make sure that it runs vertically in a straight line. Repeat this process so that each Pretty embellishment has a line of crystals joining it.
  4. Peel off a line of self adhesive crystals and press in to place at the end of one of the rows of Horizon Crystals. Continue the row to the top of the card and then trim off any excess. When you are finished, it should look like you have a continuous row. Repeat this process until it looks like you have 5 pretty embellishments hanging from 5 rows of crystals.
  5. Slot your invitation inside the wallet Peel of 4mm Self adhesive crystal and press in to place on the top centre of the invitation panel

  5. Peel off a row of 2mm self adhesive pearls. Starting at one end of the printed glitter panel, press the row in to place along the outside edge. When you reach a corner, trim off the excess and start the line again along the joining edge. When you reach the end of the row of pearls, just peel off another row and join it on. Continue until the whole panel has been surrounded in pearls.
  6. Peel off another row of self adhesive pearls and starting at the left edge of the printed panel, in the centre, press in to place around the wallet. Continue pressing in to place until the pearls come back round to the front and you can finish the line where the pearls meet the right side of the glitter panel (see image). Trim off any excess.
