There are ways in which you can work on your special day working towards making it your own with personalised bits and bobs. The best place to start with doing up a DIY wedding would be with the DIY wedding invitations and stationery, and if you like, even the save the dates too. How you go about doing so is up to you, but there are some truly unique ways in which you have enough and more room to let the creative process flourish! Let’s find out how.
The first step of planning any DIY wedding is to know what your vision is, and by that, you should have some form of idea or inspiration, and maybe even a draft of the wedding theme and the look of the DIY wedding invitations & stationery too. If you have an idea of how your DIY wedding stationery will look, then it’s a matter of picking out which styles will be used for what and get a hold of them by purchasing them online at a price that is a steal! Whether you are opting for pocket wedding invitations or inserts, don’t forget to get yourself envelopes too, to ensure that you have a complete and polished look to your invites and stationery. Once you have the blank canvases that are the DIY card kits, the next step is to work on transforming them into beautiful looks!
Here are some great ways in which you can alter the paper or card stock of the DIY wedding invitations and stationery.
We aren’t referring to the standard boring punches we usually use to punch paper for filing, but the decorative ones that come in so many shapes and sizes. Also known as craft punches, they can offer you two types of outcomes distinctively. One would be delightful shapes in which you can punch and glue on to the invite card in a beautiful way, and the other would be to use punches to add an intricate detail to the edges of the card (such as lace or crotchet).
Stamps are fun and effective ways to transfer a design onto your DIY invitations and stationery without printing it. They can also add a personal touch if you choose custom stamps, such as a monogram or motif design. Apart from the stamps that you can get in a store, you can also create your own DIY stamps with items found inside your refrigerator, such as with potatoes, and cabbage leaves (they should be tied together to form a flower, or anything that you prefer).
This delightful technique of transforming your wedding stationery is a truly beautiful one, but one that requires a bit of talent, especially if you are looking to draw on elements that you will see on the day of the wedding, like landscape, the venue, or florals. However, there is also the ombre effect, or similar artworks that can be added to your beautiful DIY wedding invitations.
