Being engaged is a blissful feeling, isn’t it? In the midst of all the daydreaming of the wedding, you are making plans for your big day. Like most brides out there, you want something unique that has not been done over and over again. As a sophisticated and modern bride, you want to DIY, and you can, with the likes of using everyday arts and crafts combined with DIY wedding invitations.
What you will initially need to sort out would be your DIY wedding invitations, and you can acquire those from a reputable wedding invitations retailer that deals with DIY kits. Make sure you have the right colour in mind, and the style in terms of whether it is folded, tri-folded, or freestanding card with no folds. Once you know the basis of the invite card, get the invitation wording you want and even add your guest list into their system and have those printed and kept aside for decorating, with everyday arts and crafts.
When we say arts and crafts, we mean decorative design and handicrafts using items that you will find in your own home. It is what you make out of those materials with the help of tools that offer you a myriad of options to make something beautiful come alive. Some of these very items could be the found in your sewing booth, while the others in the kitchen. However, certain tools that go the extra mile to make a beautiful creation will need to be acquired. These tools include the likes of punches whether it is for a singular design or a border design, to decorative scissors, stamps, ink, and paint. In terms of materials, you may use paper be it the flimsy or hard variety, which depends on the paper weight, cloth and paper ribbons, burlap, lace, doilies, origami paper, embroidery thread, and beading.
To make the likes of quills (with paper), pinwheels, ribbon and paper flowers, handprint art, stamp illustrations using stamps, or stamps cut out of fruits and vegetables and the list goes on, there are techniques that need to be used. For example, when involved in paper quilling, you need to cut out thin strips of paper that are 1/4 cm in width and roll it tightly. Once this is done, you can shape it to make the design you want and glue it to paper so it stays that way.
These are just some ways in which you can transform your DIY wedding invitations into something beautiful and truly unique. Add your own touches and make your wedding one that your family and friends will talk about for years to come.
