    For Invitations:

  2. To line envelope trace the point onto the back of the liner paper. Cut with scallop shears, trim to correct width, and lightly glue to inside of envelope.

Wedding Garland


  • Cardstock – 3 coordinating
  • Cricut® machine & alphabet cartridge
  • Pink corrugated cardboard
  • Self-adhesive pearl dots
  • Gold cord
  • Pink tulle spool
  • Needle and pink thread
  • Glue stick
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scissors

  1. Cut “MR&MRS” letters using the Cricut® machine.
  2. Cut tags in a size to accommodate the letters. Glue the letters to the tag panel, then mount a second and third time.
  3. Cut rectangles of corrugated cardboard to fit over the top of the tags with enough space to slide the gold cord through. Glue the rectangles into place on edges only, leaving a “sleeve” for cord and for adjusting the tags. Adhere two pearls to each rectangle. Slide letters onto cord.
  4. Make two tulle flowers: Cut 2 yards of tulle and fold in half several times and then in half the other direction, until there is a square large enough to cut a round flower from. Stitch through the stack of tulle several times to secure. Trim the stack to create a circle around the stitching and then twist the flower to give it dimension. Repeat.
  5. Wrap strip of tulle around the gold cord between letters on tags. Stitch the ends of the tulle and the flowers to knotted loops at each end of the cord. Tie on additional strips of tulle at ends for swags.
