How to Create These Gorgeous Invites:
Once you have decided upon your wedding wording, simply print your invites at home or at Kinkos. Then you’re ready to begin!
Practice: You’ll want to practice stamping a few times on regular paper. This is good to experiment with colors, pressure, amount of ink and other factors. Once you’ve gotten the hang of it, the rest is easy.
After you’ve master the art of stamping, place your stampers on your wedding invites for sizing and spacing.
Clean your stampers to make sure colors don’t run. Then lay your stamp on whatever ink you’ve chosen and lightly press down.
Transfer the stamp onto your wedding invites, again pressing so the entire pattern or image transfers correctly.
Rinse and repeat!
The nice thing about this simple DIY idea is that you can purchase any type of stamp and pair them with any color of ink. Think of the possibilities! You can create whimsical invites with border stamps, themed invites with fall foliage or snowflakes, or abstract invites with unique patterns and images.
It’s not easy to create DIY wedding invites that actually look good- especially if you’re not exceptionally crafty. Just know that if you can conceive it, you can do it!
