I had great plans of paper cutting each invitation by hand but I was foiled by both time and good common sense. I quickly came to the realisation that this was indeed a pipe dream only achievable without a full time job or the numerous other projects I had on the go at the same time.
I think what I eventually came up with embraced an element of what I originally had in mind but were much more achievable.
These were all produced at a fraction of the cost of purchasing custom printed wedding invitations. Whilst I’m happy to purchase items I cannot make myself (e.g. wedding rings! ) there is something very satisfying at producing something that can be passed off as a professional product.
Quite simply these were made up from card supplies from my local craft shop and a couple of Tonic edge punches to create the edge detail and the delicate band.
The corner punch gave the card inserts a nicely rounded edge, finishing them off nicely.
After some ridiculous quotes from local printers I finally ended up at the Staples stationary chain where I couldn’t fault the service. The young girl pointed out to me all my spelling mistakes(!) and aligned the wording for me.
The band I sealed with a little glue to create a wrap around the invitiation.
Love, Lucie xx
