INSTRUCTIONS

 Silver Sparkle Wedding Stationery

WALLET

  1. Print your front panel on to pearlised white A4 paper* and cut down to size. The finished size should be 6cm x 6cm.
  2. Cut a 5cm width of silver glitter paper from the long side of the A4 sheet. Use double sided tape to stick one end of your strip to the centre of the front of your wallet. Make sure that you start in the exact centre (both horizontally and vertically). Pass the strip of glitter paper around the wallet, bringing it back around to the front. Use double sided tape to secure the loose end on top of the end you have just stuck in to place. This does not have to be too neat because you will soon be covering it with your printed panel. However, do try to make sure that the strip runs parallel with the top and bottom of the wallet.
  3. Cut a piece of silver mirror card 7cm x 7cm. Use double sided tape to stick this panel on to the front centre of your wallet (on top of the strip of silver glitter paper you have just glued in to place).
  4. Cut a piece of silver glitter paper 6.5cm x 6.5cm. Stick on top of the mirror card.
  5. Stick your printed wording panel on top of the glitter paper.
  6. Peel off 4 x medium self adhesive pearls in silver and stick one in each corner of the wording panel.

INVITATION

  1. Print your invitation wording on to pearlised white A4 paper* and cut down to size. The finished size should be 13cm x 13cm
  2. Measure the white invitation insert and cut a piece of silver mirror card exactly the same size.
  3. Take 5cm of 15mm white satin ribbon and fold in half to form a loop. Use double sided tape (or tape runner) to stick the ends together.
  4. Place your white invitation insert on to a flat surface. At the top of the insert, find the middle and use your double sided tape (or tape runner) to stick the loop in to place so that the loop appears above the top of the card.
  5. Use double sided tape to stick the silver mirror card over the top of the white insert and ribbon (mirrored side facing up). Make sure you place double sided tape on top of the ribbon as well as the card so that the layers stick firmly together. The loop should now be peeping neatly over the top of the mirror card.
  6. Cut a piece of silver glitter paper 13.5cm x 13.5cm. Stick on top of the Mirror card.
  7. Stick your printed wording panel on top of the glitter paper.
  8. Place inside the wallet.

LINED ENVELOPE

  1. This is a little tricky, but when you get it right, it’s amazing!
  2. Cut your sheet of Silver Glitter paper in half. Open up your envelope and place it on top of the Glitter paper so that the point of the envelope matches the top of the paper. Take a pencil and draw around the outline of the envelope.
  3. Take a scissors and cut around the outline you have just drawn. The tricky part is that you need to cut about 0.5cm in from the line you have drawn. This will ensure that your liner is smaller than your envelope and will fit neatly inside.
  4. When you have finished cutting and you have a piece of glitter paper that is slightly smaller than the top part of your envelope, slot the paper inside the envelope so that the glitter is showing. Once you have the paper in the right position, use your tape runner to stick it in to place.

RSVP CARD

  1. Print your RSVP wording on to A4 paper and cut down to size. The finished size should be 8x5cm wide x 5.5cm high.
  2. Cut a piece of Silver Glitter Card 9.5cm x 6.5cm
  3. Cut a piece of Silver Mirror Card 9cm x 6cm. Stick on to the Glitter Card using double sided tape or tape runner.
  4. Stick your RSVP wording on top.

 

 

TOP TIP: You will need to use a laser printer to get a good finish on pearlised paper. If you do not have access to a laser printer and need to use a laser jet, I would suggest choosing a matt white paper instead.
