I’ll admit, this project was Michelle’s brainchild. I found this glorious fabric at High Fashion Home right after getting engaged and fell in love. I knew I needed it incorporated into the wedding, but I wasn’t sure how. Fast forward to a visit to Paper Source. I was still carrying around the tiny sample piece of fabric and Michelle had the idea to use it as the envelope liner for the invitations. Yeah, it is quite a bit of work for something that might get tossed right into the trash, but the finished project is gorgeous. We bought the envelope liner stencil kit, a tape runner, A7 envelopes in “paper bag”, new sharp fabric scissors, and a bolt of fabric. It was fairly simple; trace the stencil onto the back of your fabric, cut out the lining, slide the fabric into the envelope and tape the top triangle area of the liner to the actual envelope.
With the envelope decided on, I asked Rose to design the invites based on the envelope. Backwards? Well, I did go on my honeymoon before the wedding. Rose was so patient and helpful, I think the design is fun, not stuffy, and sweet. They should arrive soon and I am so excited to get them out. I will update you soon. xo
