If you’re looking for unique wedding invitations, something a little special and which will make a lovely keepsake for your guests, these are perfect! The overriding trend with wedding invitations over recent years has been for DIY and handmade, and many stationers have developed affordable invite collections for brides and grooms who choose to get a little hands-on with stationery and save money at the same time.
These scroll wedding invitations are easy to make and come in kit form from Etsy.com – all you need to do is assemble the boxes (no glue required), print the invitations at home, and add the ribbon and rose to finish off the design!
Included in your scroll wedding invitations kit:
- flat packed boxes with lids, scored ready to fold
- A4 paper to print your invite wording
- paper rose with wire stem
- vintage style ivory ribbon
How to make the scroll wedding invitations
- Fold the boxes and lids along the pre-scored fold lines and set to one side
- Print your wording on the A4 sheets provided. Tip: use your usual printer paper to practice layouts and wording before using the ivory sheets in the scroll invitations kit
- Roll the invitations and tie with the lace ribbon – with your text on the inside. Tip: if the scrolls are rolled smaller than the box it will help the rose fit snugly inside with the lid on
- For the curly stem, find a small paintbrush or large wooden skewer and twirl the wire stem around it, starting with the end nearest to the paper rose
- Pop your finger under the ribbon around the scroll to create a little gap to slip the rose underneath – the curly stem will help hold it in place
- Put your scrolls in the box and add the lid, then print labels with your guests’ names and deliver by hand for an extra special personal touch!
