Tea Party Invitation
Materials and Tools:
1/8" hole punch
6mm ivory satin ribbon
Paper Source Violet A7 envelope
Paper Source Violet A7 invitation backing 5" x 7"
Paper Source Laser vellum 8-1/2" x 11"
paper cutter or razor knife and straight edge
German scrap decorative cutouts (optional)
1. Print two invitations onto each 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of the laser vellum. It may take a few tries to achieve a layout you like; do a few test runs.
2. Using a razor knife and straight edge or paper cutter, cut to 4-3/4" x 6-3/4".
3. If desired, adhere a decorative cutout onto the invitation using a glue stick.
4. Carefully center the laser vellum layer over the violet invitation backing, leaving an equal border on all sides.
5. Carefully paperclip the invitation together to securely hold your layers in place as you punch.
6. Measure and mark equidistant from each side where you want your holes to be, and punch through the invitation layers with a 1/8-inch hole punch.
7. Cut an 8-inch length of ribbon and string it through the holes, tying into a single square knot in the front of the invitation. Trim the ends of the ribbon.
Easy to create, these cards are a fun, kid-friendly project and creatively reuse bits of paper you already have on hand.
