How to Make

1.Begin by cutting a sheet from the First Edition The Promise 12x12 Paper Pad down to 14cm x 28cm. 

2.With your sheet vertical, measure 7cm in from the right hand side and score a vertical 7cm line. Next, measure 7cm down from the top left corner and score a 14cm horizontal line.



3.From the top, measure down at 14cm and 21cm and again, score a 14cm horizontal line. Using your Dovecraft 3 in 1 Paper Trimmer, create a 7cm perforated line on the first score line on the right hand side. This will create the removable R.S.V.P section on your invite. From the bottom, measure up 21cm and cut a line through the middle of your invite.


4.Create your own wedding information on your computer so that it fits inside 6cm x 6cm squares. Print out and cut out to fit your invitation. Adhere your squares to each section inside your invite, leaving the top two squares blank.


5.Cut out two 7cm x 7cm squares of First Edition The Promise paper, ensuring it is the same paper design as your invite. On the back, add a small length of Dovecraft ribbon to the left hand side of one square, in the centre and the right hand side of the second square, in the centre. Adhere these with Dovecraft Perma Fix Tape to the back of your invite, to the top two panels.


6.Fold your invite together, tie your ribbon and cut the excess off.


7.Die cut two small hearts from the First Edition Heart dies onto an A4 sheet of Dovecraft Mirror card. With 3D foam pads, adhere one to the top right and bottom left corner to the front of your invite. Die cut a larger heart onto a sheet from the First Edition The Promise 12x12 paper pad. Adhere this with 3D foam pads to the centre of your invite.

8.Using the First Edition Alphabet Die set, die cut the ‘&’ and the first initial of the bride and groom onto an A4 sheet of Dovecraft Mirror card. Adhere the initials to the centre of the heart with 3D foam pads and the ‘&’ in between with glue. 


9.Add a selection of mirror card die cut hearts to the top two panels inside your invitation with 3D foam pads.  Die cut a selection of hearts to put inside your invitation as a surprise for when the invite is opened.



10.Use our free template to make an envelope for your invitation. Simply print out the template and draw around it onto the back of a sheet within the First Edition The Promise paper pad. Score and cut where indicated and adhere together with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape.

TIP To save time, this invitation will fit inside a Dovecraft 9.5cm x 9.5cm envelope.
