DIY Daisy Pocket Wedding Invitation http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/diy-daisy-pocket-wedding-invitation/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/diy-daisy-pocket-wedding-invitation/#comments Tue, 28 Apr 2015 12:00:37 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=45334 Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Free-Wedding-Template

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!

1556-Allison-Colors

 

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


 

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-00-Things-You-Need


 

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

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-03-Invitations-Cut

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

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-04-Cut-Out-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.

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-05-Score-Pocket

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

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-06-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

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-07-Punch-Border

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

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-08-Tape-Flaps

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.

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-10-Finished-Daisy-Pocket


 

STEP 7: MOUNT INVITATION

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-11-Tape-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.

Download-and-Print-Daisy-Pocketfold-Tutorial-12-Mount-Invitation

Flip over the pocket and insert the Allison RSVP and a 4-bar envelope into the flap. Get ready to send out this adorable invitation to your garden party wedding!

1. Start by downloading the printable place cards file. Open them in Microsoft Word to edit and enter your guests names, then print! You can either save multiple files with the names and print them all later, or you can print a page at a time as you enter in your guests names.

2. Use your paper trimmer or paper cutter, or even just an Xacto knife and ruler to trim your place cards out along the cut lines on the document.

3. Once your cards are all cut, you can use the scoring blade on your paper trimmer to score a fold line down the center of each place card. Alternately, you could use a bone folder and ruler to accomplish the same thing.

Free Printable Wedding Reception Templates http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/free-printable-wedding-reception-templates/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/free-printable-wedding-reception-templates/#comments Fri, 26 Dec 2014 17:00:52 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=38844 Printable wedding place cards, seating chart and table numbers

 

When brainstorming for this month’s free printable I looked back at the templates of mine that have been downloaded the most by Budget Savvy Brides. The elegant place cards that I shared back in June of 2013 were the clear winner. Today’s templates are in the same style, but I’ve expanded the download to include a full reception set. You can use any combination of the place cards, table numbers, and seating chart.

This is a black and white file which makes for super cheap printing. Set your printer to grayscale to save your colored ink. Print on any paper that you like! Tie in your wedding colors, use patterned paper, or go with chic black and white as I did.

The seating chart prints on 11 x 17” paper, which is too large for most home printers to handle. Send or take the file to your local copy store for inexpensive printing.

Using coordinating pieces throughout your big day is one way to give a budget wedding luxurious style. And coordinating your reception couldn’t be any easier with these free printable wedding reception templates in an elegant regal scroll design!

 

Supplies:

Place Cards

Free Printable Place Cards | The Budget Savvy Bride

Download the place card file and open in MS word or Mac Pages. Enter your guest names. I used the font Garamond, but you can use any font that you like. If you have a font that you are using throughout your wedding, such as on invitations, programs, and thank you cards, you can match the font on your reception printables.

Print the file on your chosen paper.

Tip: Use a heavier card stock than standard copy paper. I find a weight of 65 lbs to 90 lbs to work best as it’s heavy enough to give some strength to the paper, but still able to easily be printed on your home printer without causing paper jams.

DIY elegant wedding place cards

Cut each sheet in half and in half again so you end up with four place cards. A paper cutter is the quickest way to do this as you can cut more than one sheet at once, so head to your local FedEx Office store and make use of their cutter (you’ll probably be there anyway printing the seating chart on their large scale printer).

Scissors will work just fine too though.

Printable elegant place cards

Fold each card in half and stand it up. Congratulations, your place cards are now ready to go.

Table Numbers

Free Elegant Printable Table Numbers

The table numbers are even easier to put together than the place cards, as no folding is required. Download the template and add your table numbers in MS Word. If you are naming your tables rather than using numbers, you can replace the number with the table name. You will need to change the font size and reposition the text box to line everything up neatly. Print, and cut in half and in half again as you did with the place cards.

Display the table numbers using your favorite stand. A few of my favorite ideas for stands can be seen here.

Seating Chart

Free Printable Elegant Seating Chart

The seating chart is also simple to put together. Download the template and open in your word processing program. I’ve set the layout as an alphabetized table. The easiest way to get your guest names and table numbers into the chart is to create an alphabetized list in Excel, then copy and paste the columns in. When you are happy with your formatting save the file and either put it on a thumb drive or email it to the copy shop of your choice. The seating chart prints on 11 x 17” paper, and chances are your home printer won’t print something this large. A quick trip to your local FedEx Office with the file on a thumb drive solves this problem. And you can use their paper cutter for your place cards and table numbers while you are there.

Now with very little effort and very little expense you will have a perfectly coordinated reception with no one spinning aimlessly in the center of the room trying to figure out where they should go! Enjoy!

Free Delicate Floral Wedding Invitation Suite http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/free-delicate-floral-wedding-invitation-suite/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/free-delicate-floral-wedding-invitation-suite/#comments Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:00:24 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=37551 DIY delicate floral wedding invitation suite

Hello Budget Savvy Brides! Anna here from Download & Print and this month’s download is a free delicate floral wedding invitation suite, that includes the invitation, RSVP card and name badge. It’s a little bit girly, but I think brings in enough neutral colors to please your Mr. Perfect. I was inspired to create this design by a gorgeous vintage handkerchief that I found when out antiquing. I loved the scalloped edge and floral spray in the corner and thought it would transfer really well to paper. I hope you agree!

If this pretty botanical isn’t perfect for your wedding, never fear! Enter my #PinToPaper contest for your chance to win a 10-piece custom invitation suite! I’m running the contest on every bride’s favorite pastime, Pinterest. All the juicy details can be found here, but you only have until November 30 to get in your entries, so start pinning! Jessica is on the talented judging panel, and we want to see wedding items you love that will inspire invitations you love.

If you are ready to start a DIY project now, lets put together this Artisan Botanical set:

 

Supplies

 

Step 1: Download and Print

Free delicate floral printable wedding invitation suite

Download the template file and open in MS Word. The file contains the invitation, RSVP, and name badge. Add your information and format to best suit your text. I chose the fonts Tw Cen MT and Olympic Branding, however you can choose any fonts that you like. If you download the sample fonts make sure to install them on your computer before opening the template file in Word.

 

Print free delicate floral printable wedding invitation suite

When you are happy with the layout print the file on 8.5 x 11” paper in white or cream.

TIP: Print one copy first! Check this for spelling errors and formatting issues. Have someone else check over your files before committing to print all your invitations. This could save you lots of heartache!

 

Step 2: Trim

Trim free delicate floral printable wedding invitation suite

Using your paper cutter or scissors, trim the invitation and RSVP cards along the trim lines.

 

Trim result of free delicate floral printable wedding invitation suite

 

 

Step 3: Cut Out Name Badge

Cut free delicate floral printable wedding invitation suite

Use scissors to do a rough cut around the name badge.

If you don’t have a circle punch use your scissors to perform the final cut around the name badge. The trick to cutting circles neatly is to use long sweeping cuts with your scissors, keeping the scissors stationary and rotating the paper.

 

Punch out name badge on free printable wedding invitation suite

If you have a 2.5” circle punch take your rough cut name badge and punch neatly to the edge of the design. Having a punch on hand will speed things up enormously for you.

 

Free printable wedding invitation belly band badge

Step 4: Create Band

Create belly band on free printable wedding invitation suite

Cut a length of ribbon long enough to wrap around the invitation, overlapping the ends a little. Use a piece of double sided tape on the overlap to secure the ribbon into a band. Trim the ribbon tail if necessary.

Adhere name badge on free printable wedding invitation suite

Use another piece of double sided tape on the back of the name badge and adhere it to the center of the ribbon.

 

Step 5: Assemble the Invitation Package

Free delicate floral printable wedding invitation suite

Insert the RSVP card and gold 4 bar envelope into the band. The whole package fits into a 5.75” square envelope and is now ready for mailing.

Don’t forget if this delicate floral design isn’t perfect for your wedding, enter our #PinToPaper contest for your chance to win a custom invitation suite. Entries must be in by November 30 so you’d best head on over to Pinterest and start pinning!

DIY BATHROOM EMERGENCY KIT – FREE PRINTABLES! http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/diy-bathroom-emergency-kit-free-printables/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/diy-bathroom-emergency-kit-free-printables/#comments Tue, 18 Nov 2014 11:00:59 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=37737 Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I’m so excited to share today’s post with you — our collaboration with Jen of Something Turquoise went so well last time that we decided to team up again for another fun printable DIY for you!

SomethingTurquoise + TheBudgetSavvyBride DIY -- Bathroom Emergency Kits with FREE printables!

This time the challenge was creating some cute signage to go along with bathroom emergency kits. In case you don’t know what a bathroom emergency kit is, allow me to explain. It’s common for couples to create bathroom baskets to place in the restrooms at their wedding reception in case the guests need something to freshen up and keep them feeling great throughout the celebration! Jen included a great Bathroom Emergency Kit list over on her blog, so check it out to see options of what to put inside.

For this project, Jen wrote the cutest poem to include on the signage for the emergency kits, and I created three different design options for you to choose from — themed with girly, rustic or modern looks — so you can choose which one works best with your wedding theme. I’ve made these files each 5×7 size so you can fit them in any standard size frame. Each printable file includes 2 designs per page, so you can have one for the men’s and women’s restrooms. You can download each of these designs as PDFs below and print them out on paper of your choice!

 

To download the files, just click on the name of the file or the photo of your choice!

This girly design was created to be used with a glass apothecary style jar. Print on the color paper of your choice and choose a frame and voila! You’re all set!

Elegant DIY Table Numbers + Seating Chart http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/elegant-diy-table-numbers-seating-chart/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/elegant-diy-table-numbers-seating-chart/#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 12:00:21 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=36459 Printable seating chart and table numbers

Hello! Anna here from Download & Print and it’s that time of the month where I get to share a special little something that I’ve put together just for Budget Savvy Brides. Jessica sent me a note a few weeks ago telling me she gets a ton of email about the elegant place cards that I shared back in June last year. You guys just swoon over these! So I wanted to put together a couple more pieces that you can add to this set. Today I’m sharing elegant DIY table numbers + seating chart templates. Add in the menu from June this year and you’ve got a complete tabletop set.

There’s nothing tricky about DIYing these pieces. A little bit of trimming is needed on the table numbers. The seating chart can handle up to 12 tables with 10 guests per table and prints on 11 x 17” paper. You’ll probably need to track down a large format printer for paper of this size, so just send or take the file to your local copy shop and have them make the prints.

Supplies:

Step 1: Download & Print

DIY seating chart from the Budget Savvy Bride

Download the two free template files here. Open the files in MS Word or Mac Pages and add your table numbers and seating arrangements. The curved text at the top of the templates that says “seating chart” and “table” cannot be changed, so plan for this if you are theming your tables rather than using traditional numbers. I’ve used the fonts Edwardian Script and Garamond, which should both be loaded onto your computer already.

Print the table numbers on standard 8.5 x 11” cardstock. The seating chart prints on 11 x 17” cardstock, so you may have to make a run to Kinkos or your local copy shop to print this on a larger format printer.

Both files print in black and white, so change out the paper color to match your wedding. I’ve used cream paper.

 

print your own elegant table numbers

Step 2: Trim

elegant diy wedding table numbers

Hey presto. The seating chart is ready to be hung.

The table numbers need trimming along the outside cut line. The line is hard to see on your screen, but will become obvious after you print the numbers.

The Anna Skye recommended method is to do a rough cut around the edge of the cut line. Then go back with a smaller pair of scissors to cut out the detail. Use long sweeping strokes with your scissors, rotating the paper while keeping your hand steady.

Step 3: Insert

Place the table numbers in the holder of your choice, then hand over the task of setting the table to your maids/caterer/family, as by the time the tables are set you will have far too much on your mind to worry about a few table numbers!

Here are some of my favorite DIY table number holders.

  2. A box of apples! Or a flower arrangement, or upcycled mason jars, or a crate with lavender… you get the idea. Anything that fits your wedding with a simple holder for the number. Source
  3. Candlesticks spray painted in your wedding colors. Source
  4. Corks and twine. You can also use a cork in a wine bottle for a tall table number. Source

Free Elegant Lace Printable Wedding Invitation http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/free-elegant-lace-printable-wedding-invitation/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/free-elegant-lace-printable-wedding-invitation/#comments Fri, 19 Sep 2014 12:00:39 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=35751 Free printable elegant lace wedding invitation

Hello BSB’s! I’m at the tail end of a cross country move, and the name of the game currently is to keep things simple. I had a month to pack up my life in Texas and arrive ready and raring to go in a new city and state. Complicated was not a word I wanted in my vocabulary. With this in mind I’m sharing an elegant lace wedding invitation and RSVP that’s as uncomplicated as invitations come. Wedding planning is also not a time where unnecessary complications are welcome and you’ll find creating this invitation is as simple as download, print, and trim.

I’ve had a sleeper hit over at Download & Print with a pretty lace design. It’s one of the top two designs downloaded, which I did not see coming. Lace is a timeless fabric, but versatile enough to tie in with current wedding trends, such as vintage and rustic. If any of this sounds interesting to you, you’ll love the free elegant lace printable wedding invitation I’m giving to BSB’s today. Just for being you. Download the template here while you can. Which is forever really, we’re just like that.

Supplies:

DIY elegant lace wedding invitation

• Printable template
• MS Word
• Scissors or paper cutter
• 8.5 x 11” card stock
• 6.5 x 6.5” envelopes, as seen here.

Step 1: Download and Print

Printable wedding invitation template with lace design

Download the template file and open in MS Word or Mac Pages. Add your wording. The fonts I used in the sample are Maridian and Garamond in caps. If you don’t have these fonts installed on your computer prior to opening the template your word processing program will substitute fonts, and this could make the formatting look a little funky. You can use any fonts that you like however, just tweak the layout to suit your words and font choices.

Print on your home color printer or send to a copy shop for printing.

TIP: Print endless copies with one template! It’s pretty much a magical template, one turns into thousands.

Step 2: Trim

Trim the invitation and RSVP card along the trim lines using scissors or a paper cutter. If using a paper cutter, stack a few sheets on top of each other to make the cutting go quicker.

After cutting out the pieces you will discard the logos and instructions on the paper.

Step 3: Finish

Slip the invitation and RSVP into a 6.5 x 6.5” envelope. I chose a black envelope for a classic look, but you could use a kraft envelope for a rustic feel, or pick up on the color of your bridesmaids dresses for a coordinated look.

Putting these invitations together is that simple: Download, Print, and Trim.

Until next month. xxoo

Free Printable Die-Cut Wedding Invitation http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/free-printable-die-cut-wedding-invitation/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/free-printable-die-cut-wedding-invitation/#comments Fri, 29 Aug 2014 12:00:59 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=35120 free printable die cut wedding invitation

Hello BSB’s, Anna here from Download & Print with another free invitation template. Today’s project may seem a little ambitious. Die-cut wedding invitations sit toward the top of the invitation scale in terms of luxury, look, and cost. They come in all sorts of exquisite shapes, from intricate cut-out overlays, to pretty frame shapes. The invitations are usually cut-out with a machine, either commercially or you can purchase a home machine. Unfortunately both options are very costly, but the end result is oh-so-gorgeous.

By now you’ve probably picked up from my tutorials here on Budget Savvy Bride that I want everyone to have breathtaking invitations without spending the Earth, and I fully believe this is possible for even the most craft-challenged bride! Today I’m going to show you how to make this elegant frame invitation for less than $1 a set using such a simple technique. No expensive machines needed. Your weapon of choice: Scissors. This free printable die-cut wedding invitation is exclusive to BSB’s!

With a little time and effort you can achieve a high end look that is gasp-worthy. And to keep your costs down even further this template prints in black and white, making reproductions as cheap as they come either on your home printer or at your local Kinkos or copy shop. So lets get started…

Supplies

Step 1: Download and Print

Download the free invitation template, RSVP template, and envelope liner, and personalize with your details in MS Word. I chose the fonts TrajanPro and Maratre. If you do not have these fonts installed on your computer Word will substitute fonts and your invitation may look a little wonky. You can use any fonts that you like.

Print the templates on the paper of your choice.

TIP: These templates print in black and white which makes reproductions super cheap.

Step 2: Trim

Trim the invitation and RSVP along the outside of the black border. This is by far the most time consuming step and takes a little bit of concentration. If you are planning on getting your maids together for an invitation craft night, don’t open up too many bottles of wine before you’ve finished cutting these out!

I timed myself and averaged 4 minutes per template. The end result is absolutely worth the time though if you love the die-cut look but don’t love the die-cut price from an invitation printer.

Step 3: Envelope Liner
