Looking for an elegant wedding invitation style that will look rich and regal? But don’t have the budget for the royal invitations of your dreams? Then you’re in the right place! Below you will find a step-by-step tutorial showing you how easy making these invites can be.
Pros: A super simple DIY invitation to make. And absolutely elegant and super pretty. Font, paper color, buckle and ribbon customizable to your tastes.
Cons: The buckles can be expensive if you don’t find a good source for them. And making your own invitations can be time consuming.
Step 1: You will need a piece of card stock 8.5 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide (this is your back piece), a piece of card stock 8 inches tall by 5 inches wide (this is your printed piece – you can use a Word document to create a layout that allows you to get 2 invitations out of a single piece of card stock), adhesive glue dots, satin ribbon, a rhinestone buckle, scissors and a little time with a printer.
Step 2: Measure your length of ribbon against your printed card. Trim the ribbon, allowing overhang on each side. Tip: During the printing process, measure your ribbon and the space you’ve left between the text. Make sure that there is enough room for the text to be displayed!
Step 3: Take your rhinestone buckle and feed your ribbon through.
Step 4: Take your ribbon and press it onto your adhesive dots. Repeat on the other side.
Step 5: Position the ribbon on the front of the card between the text as desired. Then fold one side of the ribbon over the card, securing it to the back of the printed card with the adhesive dots.
Step 6: Your elegant wedding invitation should be starting to take shape and look something like this.
Step 7: Position an adhesive dot in each corner of your base cardstock. Make sure your glue dots will be completely covered by the printed card stock sheet. Proceed to line up your base and top cards and press them together.
Step 8: And your elegant wedding invitation is complete!
