DIY weddings are not only budget friendly, but they’re customizable and trendy to boot! Let’s kick things off with a simple and pretty DIY Doily Wedding Invitation.

I started out by picking a typewriter font to get a slightly rustic feel. I opened a new canvas in Photoshop and added the text. Once I printed the invite and RSVP on kraft cardstock, I die cut a doily from Farmer’s Market distressed white paper using the Classic Doily Shape Die and added only a small part of it to the top of the invite and RSVP card.

Then I added a length of Aqua Baker’s Twine and tied it in a bow at the top. I love the contrast of the kraft paper with the white die cut doily and baker’s twine–a little rustic, and a little feminine.

I used my Envelope Punch Board to create a matching envelope and lined it with the doily envelope liner die. My invitation and envelope are 5″x7″. I also included an RSVP card and return envelope that are both 4″x 5 1/2.

Doily Flower Wraps

The weather’s warmed up in our neck of the woods, so I’ve been thinking about spring projects. I saw these tulips at the store and thought they would make some pretty favors for a luncheon, tea party, or bridal shower wrapped in patterned paper and doilies.

I cut 6 inch circles from Hip Hip Hooray Wish patterned paper using my Magnetic Circle Cutter. Then I die cut some doilies from Hip Hip Hooray Frosting textured cardstock using the Classic Doily Shape Die and my Evolution.

I glued them together, tied some Baker’s Twine around the centers, and added tags with the recipients’ names and a few accents. Simple and lovely.
