My holiday cards are out!
So this is the first invitation I tried my hand at designing (but with ample design credit to Sabs) and now I'll never settle for a pre-printed pack of 10 invites again.
God, I love motif repetition (is that redundant? Maybe). This was a gift for the subject of these invites, to jot down any and all little wedding ideas and plans over the next few months.
(Apologies for the rhyming title.) These are the insides of these envelopes, simply made with navy blue paper stock, heavyweight eco white paper cut to size with my AWESOME and JEALOUSY-INDUCING new paper cutter, and an olive-green embossed peacock feather.
From now on, every party I have will get a banner like this. They're super easy and make everything look 200% more festive. To make, I just bought the little round cards at Paper Source, then hand-drew the letters (I'm trying to find more sophisticated and quicker ways to do this). I punched two holes at the top of each card, and then threaded the ribbon threw and tied them up.
Here's the outside to the DIY invites my bud and I made for our other's bud's engagement party. I'll post the inside soon, but make no mistake, that is embossing on the seal. Like my friend said, "It's like a spoiler alert for what's inside!"
Thinking of making your own holiday cards, invitations or fancy signs? Briar Press has a selection of more than 500 delicate and intricate black and white ornaments you can use on your computer or letterpress. They are all free.
I am in love with these tiny downloadable fill-in-the-blank gift tags from The Small Object. They are perfect for kids because you can color and decorate them, but unique enough that adults can get away with using them too. You can download a template of 18 mini tags for free here.
