Are you tired of seeing the same boring wedding invitations everywhere? Want to make your own invitations but don't know where to start? Look no further, because I'm here to give you some step-by-step instructions on how to make your own wedding invitations that will be as unique as you and your partner!
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies First things first, gather all of your supplies. You'll need some heavier cardstock or thick paper, a printer, paper cutter, glue, hole punch and any additional decorations you want to use (like ribbons, florals, glitter and wax seal). And don't forget your favorite cocktail to sip on while you work - this is a celebration, after all!
Step 2: Design Your Invitation The next step is to design your invitation. You can use a program like Adobe Illustrator to create a custom design, or you can use a pre-made template from a site like Canva for a place to start. Discover free apps and type treatment that can transform photos into artwork and get creative with your design. Add some personal touches that reflect you and your partner's personalities. And don't forget to include all the necessary information, like the date, time, location and how you would like guests to RSVP.
Step 3: Print and Cut Once you have your design ready, it's time to print it out on your cardstock or thicker paper for a test. Some at home printers cannot handle heavier card stock. Make sure you have enough ink and paper before you start - you don't want to run out halfway through! Once your invitations are printed, use your paper cutter to cut them into the desired size.
Step 4: Add Some Pizzazz Now it's time to add some pizzazz to your invitations! You can use ribbon to tie a bow around your invitations or add some dried flowers or glitter to make them stand out. Get creative and have fun with it - this is your chance to show off your personality!
Step 5: Assemble Your Invitations The final step is to assemble your invitations. Use your glue to attach any additional decorations you added in step 4, and make sure all the necessary information is included. Once everything is in place, step back and admire your handiwork!
There you have it - a step-by-step guide to making your own wedding invitations at home. Making your own invitations not only adds a personal touch to your big day, but it can also save you some money. Grab your supplies, get creative, and have fun making your own invitations that will be as unique and sassy as you and your partner!
