How To Make DIY Wedding Invitations


White card blank 4" x 6" (you can change the size if you wish)
Pink paper
Gold peel-off sticker of a wedding cake
Roller glue stick
Small foam mounting pads
White Mulberry Paper


1. Measure the size of the folded card. Mine was 10cm x 15cm.

2. Cut a piece of mulberry paper to shape, mine was 7cm x 9cm.

3. Carefully peel off the wedding cake sticker from the backing sheet using a craft knife. Place the sticker in position using tweezers. Press down to secure.

4. Using roller glue, lightly glue the back of the mulberry paper and stick firmly onto pink paper. Trim to shape to leave pink edging of 2mm.

5. Secure the mulberry panel to the front of the card using small foam mounting squares in each corner. This will give it a raised appearance.

I have used pink paper, but please feel free to change the background colour accordingly.

If desired add an invitation sticker to your card under the cake panel.
