INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Print your invitation wording on to the A4 sheet of paper and cut down to size using a paper trimmer.  You should be able to print 3 copies on each sheet.  The finished size of your invitation panel should be 20cm wide x 9.5cm high.
    REMEMBER – Keep your wording set off to the right hand side, leaving a gap of about 9cm on the left.
  2.  Use your paper trimmer to cut a piece of card 10.5cm x 21cm.
  3. Cut a second piece of card 10cm x 20.5cm.
  4.  Use your tape runner to stick the smaller piece of card on to the larger piece of card, making sure you keep the borders even.  Once you have done this, stick your invitation panel on top.
  5. Take your ruler and measure 6.8cm from the top left hand side of the invitation and make a light mark with your pencil.  Repeat this process on the bottom left of your card and then join the dots using a light line from your pencil (using your ruler as a guide).  You should now have a very light line running from the top to the bottom of your card on the left hand side.
  6.  Take your tape runner and run a line of double sided tape along the pencil mark, making sure you keep the tape to the left of the line.  Cut a piece of Ivory lace about 11cm long.  Press it firmly on to the double sided tape with the patterned edge facing towards the printed wording.  Use your scissors to carefully trim the loose ends.
  7. Cut a piece of Amelia Powder Blue paper 7cm wide x 10.5cm high.  Use your double sided tape runner to stick this on to the left side of your invitation, making sure that the edges match up well.
  8.  Run a line of tape down the middle of your patterned paper and press the dior bow in to place (make sure that it is straight).  Pass the loose ends of the dior bow around the back of the card.  Carefully cut the loose ends of the dior bow so that you have about 6cm spare on each side.  Run a line of tape down the back of the card, following the line of the ribbon.  Starting at the bottom, press the ribbon on to the double sided tape.  Once you have done this, press the top end of the ribbon on to the double sided tape.  You can then use a hot melt glue gun or a little bit more double sided tape to secure the unstuck end.
  9. Peel off your self adhesive pearl and press it in to place in the centre of your dior bow (at the front of the invitation)And you’re done!  You have a beautiful invitation that you’ve made completely yourself!!  Well done ;)TIP…..you can drastically change the look of the invitation just by choosing different papers, prints or textures.
