I LOVE how Copeland's invitations turned out!
Invitations kind of set the mood for the whole party, I think and I wanted
these to be fun and festive, just like his party will be!
To start, you will need
Scrapbook Double Sided Tape (I like to use these mounting squares)
And your Invitation!
I custom make these invitations, so if you would like a quote on either a
downloadable version or printed on high quality craft paper and shipped out to you just email me!
I would love to create something for you!
Alright, to start, cut you tissue paper just a tad wider than your invite
Then cut the paper into 2 inch wide strips
Cut strips (similar to how you would make a tassel), stopping about 1/2" from the top
Take two mounting squares and attach at each end of the tissue paper
Secure to invitation, matching up the bottom of the invite with the bottom of the tissue
Repeat this going up, moving up about 1/4" for the bottom layer to show through
Continue up the invitation, creating a pattern that you like!
I did doubles :)
Flip over and cut off excess tissue paper
The last step is important! This is what holds your top layer secure!
You want to run a straight stitch, using a sewing machine along the top layer of tissue paper.
I used the widest stitch setting.
And that's it!
A fun custom made invite :)
