We’re back with another lovely addition to our The Budget Savvy Bride Collection of printable wedding invitations for Download & Print. My latest invitation suite design is called Allison, and is inspired by a modern garden party. The bright florals come in three bold color palettes and are reminiscent of spring and summer, which just makes me happy!

Anna from Download & Print put together this fabulous DIY pocket wedding invitation tutorial using our design and I am thrilled to share it with you today! The square invitation from the Allison set mounts to one side of the pocket, and on the reverse is the floral flap to hold the RSVP and enclosure cards. Download the free pocket template from the links below, and find the 16-piece Allison paper goods here.

Follow along with the tutorial below to see the easy steps Anna took in creating the pocket wedding invitation!

Supplies

STEP 1: DOWNLOAD AND PRINT

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-01-Printable-Templates

Download the pocketfold printable file and print it on card stock in the color of your choice. Choose a stock that is between 65 lbs and 90 lbs in weight for the best results with your printer at home.

Download the coordinating square invitation from our Allison template suite. Open the template in MS Word and add your wedding or party details. You’ll need to have the free fonts installed, this information is found in the welcome pack you receive along with the templates. Print the invitation on white card stock.


 

STEP 2: TRIM INVITATION

Using scissors or a paper trimmer, cut out the invitations along the guidelines. The template prints two invitations per page and a paper cutter is the quickest and easiest way to cut them out.


 

STEP 3: TRIM & SCORE POCKET

Use scissors to cut around the solid line on the pocket template. Do not cut across the dotted lines! The dotted lines are fold lines, for your reference. The logos and web address from the file will be cut off during the trimming process, so those won’t show up on your invitation.

Use a ruler and bone folder or other scoring tool to score along the dotted lines. Scoring the folds makes for nice crisp creases, and is very important if you’re using a heavy stock, which can be difficult to fold otherwise. If you don’t have a scoring tool, a good trick is to use a closed mechanical pencil or retractable pen tip. This step will make your edges much nicer!


 

STEP 4: FOLD POCKET

Now that you’ve started your creases, fold along your score lines and create a sharp crease. Using a bone folder helps with this step, as it can smooth the edges very flat, and it will save your fingertips from doing the extra work.


 

STEP 5: PUNCH POCKET

Using your craft punch, punch along the edge of the pocket flap to create the floral cut outs. The punch has guideline marks so you can easily line up the paper to create a perfect continuous design. Isn’t the result darling?


 

STEP 6: TAPE TABS

Next, fold in the small tabs on the side and use a tape runner or double sided tape to secure adhesive on each tab. Then, you will fold down the floral punched flap and press firmly onto the tape to create the pocket.

STEP 7: MOUNT INVITATION

Adhere your invitation to the back of the pocket using a tape runner or double sided tape — eyeballing it to get it centered on the square. Be sure to have the invitation design facing up so the pocket is oriented in the same direction on the back.
