1.   Cut some white card 25 x 12.5cm, fold in half. Layer with a piece of cream card cut to 12.5 x 12.5cm.
2.   Cut a piece of New Bloom glitter card 12.5 x 7cm and layer on the bottom half of the card. Cut a doily in half and stick to the top of the patterned paper.
3.   Fix a piece of ribbon across the width of the card, covering the join. Cut another piece of ribbon to 10cm and trim the end to flag points, stick on top of the strip of ribbon. Cut a piece of ribbon to 15 cm, glue the edge to create a loop, wrap another small piece of ribbon around the centre and glue down. Finish with a resin flower in the centre.
4.   We used the Stampmaker to create all our wedding stationery stamps. Stamp your title and stick to the card using foam squares.

Follow the same instructions for the save the date but have fun mixing up the designs.

Top Wedding Tip: Get someone to help you proof read the wedding stationery, you don’t want to see a typo once you have started making your invitations.

Name Places and Favour Boxes

1.   Cut a piece of purple spot card to 20 x 7.5cm, Score the card at 6cm & then 12.5cm. Fold the card into an easel shape.
2.   Cut the corner of a doily and stick in the top left corner of the front facing panel. Punch a name tag and stick down using foam squares.
3.   Punch and layer leafs and flowers from the patterned paper, add a resin flower to the centre and glue to the base of the card to stop the top flap moving forward.

1.   For the favour box use our template to create the shape using the purple spot New Bloom paper, on the front under the flap add a small piece doily. Cover the flap with a length of ribbon.
2.   Punch a small flower and add a pearl to the centre. Glue on a mini peg and clip to the top of the box.

Top Wedding Tip: Plan properly If using specific products, ensure you buy enough or can re-order. There’s nothing worse than running out half way through.

Handmade Wedding Bouquet

 Who would have thought layered flowers could look so beautiful; make a wedding bouquet truly special to you. Layer die cut flowers, curl the petals and glue with a hot gun to secure in place. Add resin flowers and gems to coordinate the wedding theme.
