While standing in the check-out line today I picked up the most recent Martha Stewart Weddings magazine to flip through. The first page I flipped open to I saw the most amazing idea – lace doily envelope liners! I immediately purchased the magazine and raced home to read what Martha's newest idea was!
These doily envelope liners make the perfect DIY project for your wedding! They look great with a neutral colored invitation, or I thing they would look equally beautiful with a bright colored paper peaking through. I found easy instructions from Martha Stewart Weddings to make these liners.
To make, lay a 9-inch square doily face down, with a corner pointing toward you. Center invitation on top. Fold up bottom point, then side points, and finally the top. Insert into envelope. You can buy doilies in different sizes based on the size of your invitation. I found a 9-inch square butterfly doily from Artifacts Inc. I also found some square paper doilies online here.
I would love to find somewhere that sold lace envelopes! If you know of any let us know!
As I was reading through BridalBuds last week, I came across this post by Plumeria Bud about invitations from Printable Press and I thought it was such a great idea! They have a ton of unique designs to match your event’s theme and style or they can customize an invitation that better suits your personality. And now for the best part, once Printable Press has designed the invitation set, you get the PDF so you can have them printed online or at a local print shop or even print them yourself at home!
Pleas note: Printable Press is not taking new orders until May 1st.
