Elegant Country Lace Bridal Shower Invitations

Elegant Country Bridal Shower Invitations + Tutorial

Today I’m excited to reveal the elegant country bridal shower invitations I made for my friend’s bridal shower! I hope you like them!

We got the idea from Pinterest, of course. Here is the original:

The inspiration

And here’s our version!

The Tutorial:

Materials:

Materials you will need.

  • Kraft paper cardstock (I got these at Michaels)
  • Kraft paper envelopes (I found mine at Archivers)
  • White lace doilies (Found at Joann’s or Michael’s)
  • Thin ribbon
  • Adhesive
  • Scissors

I created the design in InDesign and had them all printed out at FedEx on Kraft paper cardstock I bought at Michael’s. I printed them 2 up on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, so it only cost me around $4 to print 80 5×7 invites! Then I had to trim all of them out. The perfectionist, former graphic designer in me decided I had to cut them each out with an exacto knife (not the most effective use of time, but oh well).

Here they are all printed out.

Once they were all trimmed out I attached them to a doily. I used scrapbook adhesive dot glue and put a couple strips on the solid part of the doily. (I don’t recommend using a regular glue stick because then your doily is sticky to the touch.) Then I centered the invite over top of the doily with the most overhang on the left and right sides. I folded over the sides and then trimmed off the extra doily on the top and bottom. If you don’t trim it, they will not fit in the envelopes.

Here are the invitations with the sides folded over, before I trimmed off the top and bottom.

Next, I tied a thin pink ribbon around the whole thing and tied a bow. This part is the hardest! I didn’t attached the ribbon to the card since it was such a tiny ribbon. I also tried twine instead of ribbon, but it did not look good.

I also bought matching kraft paper envelopes at Archivers and put a cute stamp on the front to write in the addresses.

Here’s the finished version with the stamped envelope!

What do you think?
