DIY Wedding Stationery Set How-To : save the date, invite + favor box

I have a fun post to start your Thursday off with - it's a DIY Wedding Stationery Set that uses Serif’s CraftArtist software and ‘Love Birds’ digikit, which can be downloaded from the social crafting website DaisyTrail.com. Below is a step-by-step guide with illustrations. You can either create the card using the free version of the software CraftArtist Compact or you can choose to buy CraftArtist Professional. The Love Birds digikit is available to purchase from DaisyTrail.com for $4.99.

Wedding Stationery Set Created using “Love Birds” digikit and CraftArtist Compact or CraftArtist Professional. Other supplies used: Inkjet paper/card, Basic card stock, Selection of twine or ribbon, Selection of small buttons, Adhesive, foam pads, or basic paper glue will work fine, Scissors and/or paper trimmer

Save the Date Card

  • Starting with a blank project, choose an A4 size template.
  • Create a 4” x 3” basic rectangle as base for the card with a white fill and black line. This will be easier for cutting out after printing.
  • Add the text and then choose your fonts and lay out the text. Leave a bit of a gap at the top of the card to add some ribbon on embellishments after printing.
  • The hearts were created using a basic heart shape and color was picked from the floral embellishment in the digikit.
  • Once the card is finished, group everything so you can copy and paste to cover the A4 sheet.
  • Print on white inkjet cardstock. An off white or cream would also be nice for wedding stationery depending on your color/theme.
  • Use a paper trimmer to get more accurate cutting and it saves a lot of time if you have loads of cards to do.
  • Thread a small piece of twine through one of the buttons for the bottom corner. Glue in place.
  • Wrap twine around the top of the card and secure with a knot. Add a little bit of glue on the back of the card to keep the twine in place. Tie the button in place finishing with a simple tied bow.

*** Top Tip: Why not add some magnetic tape to the back of the card?  Available in most craft stores, this will be great for your family and friends to stick it to their fridge!

Wedding Invitation

  • Start off by making the card insert. Shown with an A6 card insert and text using the same fonts as the “Save the Date” card.
  • Print on high quality white inkjet paper and folder ready to insert into the card.
  • For the wedding invitation, choose an A6 card template and use the same embellishment from the Love Bird digikit. Also added are some letters and a heart.
  • Print them on a separate sheet and add them using foam pads to add a bit of dimension.
  • Once printed and folded, add the buttons and twine much the same way as “Save the Date” card. For added dimension you can use foam pads to stick the hearts on.

Favor Box

  • This was created using the cupcake holder template with a background from the Love Birds digikit.
  • Print on card and cut out and then assemble. Some glue and a little bit of tape was used to hold in place.
  • Draw a circle using the base of the cupcake holder (once assembled) as a template.
  • Cut out and secure holder to the base – again, using glue and tape.
  • Create a little handle from a printed out A4 sheet of card. Measure approximately 1/2” and then cut and secure using tape.
  • Add your own embellishments and tissue paper to finish off. Shown with a couple of buttons and some pink twine to match the invites.

*** Top Tip: You could also add names to the favor boxes so they double up as place cards. Use metallic pens for added sparkle and glamour.
