Looking for new and exciting looks to do up your wedding in a way that will awe your wedding invitees? You can make a great impression when you send them DIY wedding invitations, featuring embellished styles and looks using textured/specialty paper, lace, diamante/pearl buckle or cluster embellishments, and more.
We have selected a few styles that are trendy, appealing, and easy to DIY. The way you present the look is as important as the look of your DIY wedding invites. You may find the following areas helpful in making sure that the look of the invite cards complements the package and vice versa. It’s all about the first impression.
Lace: Feminine and delicate, lace can definitely enhance the look of any item that it’s used on. When it comes to using it as an embellishment for your DIY invites, you can either use it as an all over design that envelopes the front facing of your card, using trim appliqués or with a lace ribbon to wrap around the card (possibly accompanied by a satin ribbon and a cluster/buckle embellishment).
Embellished Buckles, Brooches & Clusters: If you have already decided that you would very much like to include a faux diamante or pearl embellishment into your wedding invite card, then we need not persuade you. However, in case you’re undecided there are many great ways to further enhance the look of your DIY wedding invites to make them dazzle and shine.
Paper Crepe Rosettes: With a few materials and a touch of creativity, these paper rosette styles can really bring about a beautiful look to your DIY card. You can opt to make them large or tiny, and even use a pearl cluster or bead embellishment in the centre to really make it pop.
Quilling: A creative technique ideal for the advanced DIY-ers with lots of patience in hand. With the use of thing strips of paper, the proper tools to aid you and lots of glue, you can make beautiful designs come alive. This DIY technique is ideal for beautiful handcrafted keepsake DIY wedding invitations.
Packaging: The way you present your DIY wedding invitations is as important as what is included. Consider adding a pop to your wedding invite envelopes, whether it’s with an envelope liner, matching printed envelope designs, adding envelope seals, and even using wax seals like in the olden days. Another way would be to go down the luxury route with a sophisticated package using tissue inserts/wraps for the invite card placed within a DIY invitation box.
Whether you are looking for DIY bomboniere tags, gift boxes and bags for your wedding day or for a special event (be it a personal or corporate function), there are many choices in store for you. For you to decide on which item is best suited for you, we’ve highlighted four types of DIY stationery kits that are available to you. These include the likes of labels for gifts, DIY bomboniere tags/labels for boxes, gift bag labels/tags, and party bag labels & kits.
Labels for Gifts – If you’re thinking about personalised bombonieres/favours for your wedding or special event, you might want to personalise them with a custom label. Whether you’re choosing a design for your label or you would prefer a clear label with foil printing, that’s up to you. Gifts that can be given with a label attached include soap, perfume/spa bottles, candles/candle bottles, decorative ornaments, wine bottles and more. Whether you’re opting to include them in a box or bag later, you can still personalise them with the names of the bride and groom along with the wedding date if it’s a wedding or brand it with the company information if it’s a corporate event. These are just easy ways to add your own DIY bomboniere tag/label straight onto the gift.
DIY Bomboniere Tags/Labels for Boxes – If you are thinking of having bombonieres/favours for your wedding or special event (whether it’s a corporate event, birthday party or any other special occasion), it’s always nicer and neater when packaged nicely. There are many choices of bomboniere or gift boxes available for your selection, where they range from noodle boxes, pillow boxes, cube to rectangle boxes of paper and clear plastic variety for better aesthetics. As you place your (often personalised) bombonieres/gifts into these boxes, you may want to add DIY bomboniere tags or labels that lets your invitees or guests know how you’ve kept them in mind when planning.
Gift Bag Labels/Tags – Similar to that of the bomboniere/gift boxes, you can do the same by labelling or tagging your gift bags with personalised labels including the event details, the names of the bride and groom with the wedding date if it’s a wedding or the corporate event information if it’s a corporate party, or simply adding a note of thanks with the name of the intended recipient along with the DIY bomboniere gift tags/labels.
Party Bag Labels & Kits – If your event is more casual, such as that of a kiddie birthday party, you might want to choose the party bag kits which comes with the option of personalising each kit with the design of your choice to match the party theme. You can also add the name of each party bag recipient to make it easier for you. As these are clear bags, you can add in colourful trinket gifts or candies and more.
