I just finished my Save the date cards and I wanted to share them with everyone… as I found it very hard to find details on how to do all the little bits!
Our wedding has the theme of “Vintage Carnival.” I thought I would share my photos and how I made them, also I'm super pleased with how they turned out.
Any questions, please ask me!
I printed out carnival images in a collage stylee, then cut them in to my envelope template (I folded paper around contents). Then i used a wet tea bag and wiped all over the paper to create the vintage look! I got shaped scissors from Hobbycraft (really cheap) and cut around the edges.
For the “ticket stubs” I printed a full page of these and just cut them out in to ticket stub sized pieces. I used a one inch hole punch for the cut out sides and, again, my handy tea bags came in useful! For the back-side of the tickets, I put out wedsite information (feel free to have a wee look). The image of little man came from a wingdings font from a free fonts website, all the strange little font men are featured a lot on our weddingy things.
Here are the refrigerator magnets that we made — We are dressed as each other in the first one, was supposed to be cute, but I think it ended up being a little creepy. And the bridge in the second picture is The Forth Rail Bridge, we are getting married on the beach underneath it!
We ordered magnet paper from a website and just printed them on our home printer. Then we used Microsoft Publisher to get them to look like photo booth strips, toned down the colour a little and cut them in to the right size.
Here it is all ready to be sealed up! The paper was photocopied doublesided to include the clowns on the inside as a wee surprise when you open it up.
