First Look: DIY Wedding Invitations

Posted by in DIY, Our Designs

DIY Indian wedding invitation

When I was a kid, I loved puzzles.

I’d sit for hours and turn little colorful cardboard pieces into a beautiful picture.

And today, I still love how the different pieces of our designs…wrap, ribbon, backer and invitation layer come together to make something unique for each couple.

Now, we’ve created a way for you to have the same fun that we do everyday: with our new DIY stationery collection.

In addition to a DIY invitation where you simply fill in your wording and print, we are adding matching papers, address labels, tags, wedding programs, reception stationery and more.

So you can coordinate your wedding as much as you want, get more off your to-do list, and focus on the fun stuff.

We’ve sized the invitations so you can add your own embellishments. And if you don’t to print and cut them yourself, no problem! We’ve included an invitation file that you can customize and upload to our Zazzle shop for quality printing that ships in 1 to 3 days.

We’re still pulling together all the coordinating design pieces. But you can see the invitations and some of our digital papers (perfect for matching wraps, bellybands and layered prints) in our DIY stationery Etsy shop.

In the meantime, here are some of the fun ideas that you will be able to create:

I love these. Pom pom bunting just looks like fun on a string to me. These are made out of yarn, using a large serving fork and scissors (seriously!) DIY tutorial can be found at  Momtastic.

Playful and different, tassel bunting has a great 3D feel. Pack it densely in a monochromatic palette for a modern look. Or add more space between tassels and more colors for a more casual feel. These are surprisingly easy to make. DIY tutorial can be found at Calico Skies.

Coolest use for crayons outside of drawing rainbows. These hearts are crayon shavings melted together between wax paper using an iron. How cool is that?! DIY tutorial at House of Earnest.
