DIY Invites 

DIY, Lifestyle June 8, 2015

In my almost daily wedding journey I’ve ben lamenting over all of the events I have-yes have-to plan and all of the expensive invites we will be buying.  I mean this is engagement party 2, there are bridal showers and teas to come.  Well, then I figured out how to print my little invite creations on some pretty heavy stock paper in my little ol’ printer.

First I grabbed my water color paper, I choose this because I knew I’d be painting it later and I loved the texture.  Then I slid it into the feeding tray, one sheet at a time, in the back of my printer instead of the normal tray.  This is the key to printing on the good stuff.  Next, I got my favorite flat water color brush and some pink pigment and painted the top of the invites.  Some of my personal info has been removed from the cards.  I love you guys but I get nervous LOL.  

 

Next use a paper cutter to cut out the invites…make sure you cut inside the black outlines.  Nobody wants to see that!

 

Then I cut out another rectangle slightly larger than the invite and spray glued them together.  Finally, I grabbed a gold pigment marker and colored the edge.

This is the final product!!! I hope this can help and inspire someone!!!
