Bellybands: You can bundle your DIY wedding invitations and stationery with a band that goes around the belly of the cardstock. This could either be done using creative paper bellybands or even fabric/thread band. Either way, you can add little trinkets to make it more exciting, like a monogram stitched onto a fabric band, beads attached to the thread work and so on.
Envelope Liners: Add a little wonder to the first thing that your invitees will see when they receive your masterpiece creation – the envelope. Adding liners to the inside of the flap can make it more interesting, and you can do it in a few lovely ways, such as fabric, print/pattern, doily, photograph prints, and lace liners. You could go the extra mile and create an envelope in the way you like it, making it not just a DIY wedding invitation, but also the envelope too. This could be with recycled paper, paper doilies and even a crisp invitation box.
Custom Postage Stamp: If you want to personalise your DIY wedding invitation further, why not try out a custom postage stamp, or even themed postage stamps. Make sure to follow the correct procedure to getting this down in your country to avoid time issues when sending out your lovely DIY wedding invitations and stationery.
