Mix and mingling different art styles in moderation and balance can bring about a grand look.
Fun Enclosures & Envelopes
Another great way to add to your DIY wedding invitations would be with fun and exciting envelopes. You can add some great accents to them like those we mentioned in one of our previous posts –Accessorise your DIY Envelopes. But there are other ways to enhance it, and that would be with the use of enclosures and wraps. There are many ways you can go about it, be it with paper itself or any other material that’s easy and beautiful to use.
Let’s talk about paper wraps first. All you need in such a scenario would be to get some paper stock with a low weight, preferably lower than 150gsm. You can opt for a petal wrap style, where you get 4 petals (scalloped on each side of a square sheet of paper), where you place the likes of a flat wedding invite card in the centre, and fold each petal inwards so that it closes to mimic a flower. As a finishing touch, you can either add a ribbon with a bow, or even add a diamante or faux pearl embellishment.
Other paper wraps include a 2 petal gate fold which can also be complemented by a ribbon and embellishments, or any style you want to add to the fold be it triangular, curved at the very top so that there’s a sneak peek of the invite card (maybe to display a monogram or motif), or anything you want to do. You can easily try out drafts to see which one suits you best.
Another way would be to use a pocket sleeve wrap, where the invitation card is completely inserted into it. Like the gate fold wrap, you can also style it to offer a sneak peek too. Other materials you can use for these would be the likes of vellum paper, or lace, netting or anything that is easy to use. If you don’t want a type of enclosure, you can just opt for a ribbon or a creative embellishment (other than the diamante or faux pearl variety), maybe origami or even 3D roses and more! In such cases you might need DIY wedding invitations boxes to help deliver your beautiful keepsake handmade invitations to your invitees safely, making sure the delicate contents within is not harmed.
DIY Invitations Boxes
You can also purchase some great wedding invitation boxes from the online store. These are perfect for the delicate handmade wedding invites, or even when you opt for luxurious finish and elegant presentation of your invites. There are so many way you can add to the presentation of your cards inside of a DIY wedding invitations boxes, that come either in singular colours or even metallic to add to the entire look. Inside, you can place your wedding invite card in a bed of potpourri, dried petals, confetti, or any material you are planning on using for your decor.
