Rustic Kraft and Laser Cut Invitation with Tag – Simply Stunning!

In 2016, Lucy was asked to be Maid of Honour for one of her best friends. As with everything she does, Lucy embraced the task with gusto. One of the responsibilities she took on was to co-design and make all the wedding stationery. And here it is – The Rustic Kraft and Laser Cut Invitation with Tag.

We were really delighted when she offered us the opportunity to feature the finished wedding invitations on the website. And even more delighted when we saw how lovely they were. We just couldn’t wait to share them with you!

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Print your wording on to a sheet of Kraft Card and cut down to size.
  2. The finished invitation panel should be:   15cm wide x 13.5cm high.
  3. You should also be able to print the front tag on to the same sheet at the same time.
  4. The finished front tag should be appx. : 2.5cm x 7cm.
  5. Slot your invitation wording inside the invitation and fold closed.
  6. Punch a hole in the top of your tag.
  7. Take a length of jute cord appx. 90cm long. Starting at the front, leaving about 15cm of spare string, wrap the cord around the card twice. When you meet back in the middle, thread one end of the cord through the hole in the tag. (you will need to thread the string from the back of the tag through to the front).
  8. Once this is done, tie both ends of the string together in a double knot. Cut off any excess string.

 

And you’ll be pleased to know that there is nothing else to do! You should now have a really beautiful rustic invitation that you can proudly say you made yourself.
