I am in love with Youn’s beautiful invitations!
I made a folder for the invitation using heavy paper.Â I cut out a 10×7 rectangle with a triangular section below the right side.Â I used a bone folder to score the middle (where the folder’s spine is) and at the bottom of of the right side so the triangular part could be folded upward.Â Then I glued the right side of the triangle to the right edge of the folder to make a pocket.Â I stamped the triangular pocket of the folder using white pigment ink.Â Then I cut a 5×7 piece of paper doily and glued it to the cover of the folder.
I glued the invitation card on the left inside of the folder and stuffed the enclosures in the right hand pocket with the tissue paper rectangles between the cards.Â
I used a 2-inch circular punch to make a paper disc and stamped our initials on it using white pigment ink.Â Then I punched two 1/8″ of an inch holes on either side of it.
I cut rectangles of different colored tissue paper to use between the cards.
I closed the folder with the contents inside and tied satin ribbon around the middle, threading through the holes in the paper disc and tying it behind the disc.Â Then I took a straw flower and glued it on the back side of the paper disc.Â
to make the liner, trace the envelope onto a sheet of pretty paper.Â Cut it out and trim the upper triangular portion about half an inch on either side and trimmed the other 3 rectangular sides by about 1/8 of an inch.Â
Finally I stuffed the folder into the envelope and tied the envelope with twine (like a package) and tied a bow on the front with a couple 1-inch paper discs threaded onto it.Â I put that envelope into a slightly larger vellum/glassine envelope.Â I put stickers that were addressed on the front of the glassine envelope (the font is Memoir from Veer).
Voila!Â Now it’s ready for some pretty stamps.
