Here’s How You Do It:

Back Panel:

  1. Print your wording on to a sheet of Matt Off White Card and cut to size.  The finished size should be 14.5cm x 14.5cm.  Make sure you set the wording to the left of the card so that the tag will fit on the side.

Front Tag:

  1. Print  your wording on to Kraft Card and cut down to size.  The finished size should be about 5cm x 7cm.
  2. Cut a piece of Kraft Card 10cm x 8cm.
  3. Cut a piece of Polka Paper in Blue 9.5 x 7.5cm.  Use your tape runner or double sided tape to stick this on top of your craft card, making sure the borders are even.
  4. Stick your printed panel on top of the blue polka paper making sure you have an equal gap on the bottom and each side (with a larger gap at the top).
  5. Use your hole punch to punch a hole in the top left corner of your tag.
  6. Cut a piece of hemp cord appx. 40cm long.  Thread one end through the hole and tie a bow at the top of the card, making sure that it is nice and secure.  Cut off any loose ends.
  7. Use your self adhesive pearls to decorate the tag.
  8. To finish, all you need to do is cut a piece of hemp string about 1 meter long.  Place the string on a flat surface and place the printed back panel across the middle, face down.  Wrap the string around the back of the invitation, cross it over at right angles and then pull it back around to the front, turning the invitation to face you.  When the string meets back in the middle, thread one end underneath the other and tie a knot.  Cut off any loose ends and then slide your tag underneath.
