I used one of our pocketfolds and taped it together to allow me to easily wrap the band around it.
I cut 8.5 x 11″ sheets of gold vellum paper into 2″ strips and wrapped them around the invitation, taping them together with double sided tape.
I cut small squares of black stardream cardstock and taped stardream opal text onto it, and gocco’d our monogram on each one.
To attach the monogrammed card, I used mounting tape to raise it up a bit. I found that two pieces held it on securely. Excuse the little dog hair- I think several of our invites were probably sent out with a little “hello hair” from our dog, Max.
Attach the monogram square, and you’re done! I actually assembled the belly bands before assembling the invitations to break things up a bit. It worked out really well to just be able to put them on and send them out as opposed to assembling each one all at once.
Did anyone else use belly bands to hold your invite together? Did you guests know what it was, or did they cut it off as several of ours did?!
