Pink and crystal heart embossed stationery to make at home.

This design made me fall in love with our new Heart Embossed paper. We wanted to create a pretty design for heart embossed stationery that would be perfect for princess brides. It took us a while to design but only an instant to fall in love with it.

This is an easy design to customise….just change the colours, patterns or embellishments to personalise it to your own requirements.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Print your wording on to Persian Pink Card and Cut down to size. The finished size should be 13cm wide x 18cm high. You should be able to fit 2 invitations on each panel.
  2. Print your RSVP wording on to Persian Pink Paper and cut down to size. The finished size should be 6.5cm high x 9cm wide. You should be able to fit 6 panels on each sheet if you lay it out carefully.
  3. Cut a piece of Persian Pink Card 9cm x 11.5cm.
  4. Cut a piece of Hearts Embossed Paper 8.5cm x 11cm. Stick on top of the Card making sure that the borders are equal.
  5. Cut a piece of Persian Pink Card 7cm x 9.5cm. Stick on top of the Heart Embossed Paper.
  6. Stick your RSVP wording on top.
  7. Slot your completed RSVP card inside the flap of the RSVP envelope
  8. Cut a piece of Venus Vellum Paper 6cm x 28cm
  9. Cut a piece of Heart Embossed Paper 5cm x 28cm. Stick the Heart Embossed Paper on top of the Venus Vellum Paper, leaving an even gap at the top and bottom. This will form your wrap.
  10. Holding the centre of your wrap against the centre of your invitation, carefully fold the overlapping edges around to the back. Make sure that you do not fold it too tightly because your wrap will need to slide off once you have completed it. A gap of about 1-2mm each side is useful.
  11. Turn the invitation upside down. Press one loose end of the wrap against the back of the card. Fold the other loose end down and glue it in place on top of the piece you are holding down. This should form a wrap that you can slide on and off the card. It shouldn’t be so loose that it falls off, but neither should it be so tight it can’t be removed with ease.
  12. Peel off a row of 2mm crystals. Press them along the top edge of the embossed paper. When you reach the end of the row, peel off another row and continue the line until you meet your starting point. Cut off any overlap. When you have finished, it should look as though you have a continuous row of crystals running around the wrap. Repeat this process for the bottom edge of the embossed paper.
  13. Use your glue gun to stick the white bow in to place in the front centre of the wrap.
  14. Use your glue gun to stick the small Cupid Heart on top of the bow.
  15. Slide your RSVP card underneath the wrap.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  2. Measure your box and cut a piece of Persian Pink paper that is about 1cm larger than double the width and is long enough to wrap all the way around your box.  If you choose to use one of our favour boxes, you will need to cut a section of paper about 13cm wide x 21cm high.
  3. Basically, if you know how to wrap a parcel, this will be a doddle.
  4. Place  your box face down in the centre of the paper.  Run a line of tape along one edge of the paper and wrap around until it covers the box and the paper is stuck together along one edge.
  5. Turn the box to one of the sides that is currently open.  Pull the bottom of the paper up towards the top of the box and hold in place.  Fold in each side of the paper until it touches the box.  Make a crease along the paper so that you have a point that can be folded down and stuck into place.
  6. Repeat this process on the other open end.
  7. Cut a piece of Heart Embossed Paper 5cm wide x 21cm long. Place  your box face down in the centre of the paper.  Run a line of tape along one edge of the paper and wrap around until it covers the box and the paper is stuck together along one edge. It should form a wrap around your box.
  8. Peel off a row of 2mm crystals. Press them along one edge of the embossed paper until you meet. Cut off any excess. When you have finished, it should look as though you have a continuous row of crystals running around the box. Repeat this process for the other edge of the embossed paper
  9. Use your glue gun to stock the white bow on to the top right of the favour box (on top of the embossed paper)
  10. Use your glue gun to stick the small Cupid Heart in to place on top of the white bow
