DIY Black & White Damask Shower Invites…

with 10 comments

…A Little Look At What I’ve Been Up To This Weekend!

I’ve been a busy and crafty little bee!  I’m excited to show you what I’ve accomplished (over several cups of coffee, of course!). 

I am helping host a wedding shower coming up and decided to make the shower invites myself.  What do you think?  I took out some of the info for privacy reasons, but I was very pleased with the actual invites.

It’s an invite I designed printed on regular white printing paper, cut out and placed on top of black cardstock paper which I also cut to size.  I used a hole puncher at the top, then took a scrapbooking flower and attached it with a rhinestone tack thingy (forgive my scrapbooking terminology).  

 The paper isn’t glued together, it’s just being held with a tack, so it may look crooked but really it’s not. 

Now all I have to do is purchase some nice envelopes, and POOF, they’re out the door.  Yay!  I can’t wait to show you pictures of the shower itself once it’s over with.  We’re sticking with a black and white theme, with touches of red.  I’m so excited!

  4. Oh those are adorable! Very pretty! I did the same thing with a “tack thingy” on my college graduation announcments. I should try and find a copy and put that on my blog. You have inspired me to go look!

  7. The red really makes it. Is that a scrapbooking flower?
