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 hope you agree!
If you are ready to start a DIY project now, lets put together this Artisan Botanical set:
- Printable templates <–download
- Color printer
- White or cream card stock
- Paper cutter and/or scissors
- 2.5” circle punch (optional)
- Double sided tape
- Black 5.75” square envelope
- Antique gold 4 bar envelope
- Black 7/8” ribbon
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.
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!
Trim out your invitations. Using your paper cutter or scissors, trim the invitation and RSVP cards along the trim lines.
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.
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.
Create the belly band. 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.
Use another piece of double sided tape on the back of the name badge and adhere it to the center of the ribbon.
Assemble the Invitation Package: 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.
