A Twinery Wedding

Wedding season is almost upon us!  Are you preparing for your special day?  Today I have a post up on The Twinery's blog and am sharing a few wedding ideas using the new shimmer twine line from The Twinery!


With the beautiful new purple shimmer twine I created wedding programs rolled like scrolls and several different wedding invitation designs.


Everyone likes to be unique.  Everyone is looking at how to put a spin on their big day.  How about rolling your wedding programs up and tying them with shimmer twine?  You add a unique twist to the program and the beautiful sparkle from the shimmer twine!


I created three different wedding invitation ideas.  You could also use this same idea for a wedding card if you are already married but attending a wedding.  Each of these invitations uses a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of card stock.  I just trimmed about 3/4" off  of the front of the invite and folded the back flap over.  


The first invitation is super simple!  I took a paper doily that I purchased at a store, and stamped the purple "two hearts" sentiment.  I trimmed the front cardstock, folded the flap over and then tied it shut with the beautiful Purple Shimmer Twine.  This design is very easy to reproduce!


On the next card I added a little more detail.  I used a die to cut the pattern on the front of the cardstock and then followed the same directions I used for the invitation above, only this time adding in some sparkly sequins to match the shimmer twine.


And this last version, again very similar to the invite above but this time I didn't add a flap and I tied the shimmer twine down the spine of the invitation instead.  

The twine I've featured today is this beautiful twine:
