wedding invitations: tying it all together
so far in our wedding invitation saga we have:
- embossed the names on the envelopes
- addressed the envelopes with a copper pen
- lined the envelopes with a fern print
- ordered, then remade, the invites
- made the response cards and embossed the return envelopes
but wait, there's more!
i realized that it would be a good idea to direct guests once more to our wedding website. i decided the best way to do this would be with a tag that had the website on it. using powerpoint and our signature font i came up with a quick template.
I printed this off on craft paper and sliced it up at the local copy shop, leaving me with 100 informative, but boring, tags.
back at home I used a leaf motif stamp on the blank side.
then I trimmed the sides,
punched a whole at the top,
and affixed a leaf to the unstamped side above the website using my spray, stick, and tap method.
then came time for the ribbon decision. at first I thought about using some twine we had on hand to save myself a trip but decided it was too rustic.
so I went to one of my favorite east bay fabric stores: stonemountain and daughter. boy did they have options! after some time i narrowed it down to four choices:
after some serious contemplation i ended up with the second one and purchased one roll or 50 yards. once home i cut the ribbon into 11 inch lengths and had victor thread it through the tags.
he did an excellent job.
seriously phenomenal. I should marry this boy for his ribbon threading abilities alone.
next up: the finishing touches!
