How to make the scroll wedding invitations

  1. Fold the boxes and lids along the pre-scored fold lines and set to one side
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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!
