Two templates are required to make this scroll invitation and matching reply. They are in the form of a Word document. Choose from either formal or informal versions of the templates.
To download, follow these instructions:
1) Right click on the blue arrow icon (left of the template title that you want) and select 'save target as'.
2) Choose where you want to save it to, click save and away you go.
3) Each template will only take a few seconds to download.
To use the template once you have downloaded it:
1) Double click the template icon and Microsoft Word will open and show the invitation template.
2) All the templates are saved in the font 'Arial' as this is common to most PC's. Just change the names, dates, venue etc. to suit by selecting the text and typing over it. If you want to change the font, just highlight/select the text and choose another one. If you change the font, you may need to change the size to make it fit properly and look good.
3) Print on A4 size test paper - you may need to make minor adjustments for the margins to fit your printer but we have created the templates with the majority of settings in mind - so most of you shouldn't have too many problems.
Makes 30 invitations with separate reply cards and reply envelopes plus wax sealed outer envelopes (covers approximately 55 guests) - Total cost from £60.
i) Print your invitation onto an A4 (single) sheet of paper (you can use the free Word templates downloadable from the top of this page).
ii) Print your reply so that 2 fit onto 1 sheet of A4 paper ( our free downloadable templates are set up like this already).
iii) Cut the replies in half so each one is A5 in size (a guillotine provides the best finish - but scissors are fine if you're careful!)
iv) Cut your ribbon into the following lengths:
For the invitation scroll 20 x 30cms
For the reply scroll 20 x 25cms
v) Tie the invitation ribbon lengths around something like a broom handle - or something with a diameter of about 25mm. Trim the ends at an angle.
vi) Stamp the rubber stamp motif onto the top centre of your invitation and reply scrolls - practice first to make sure you know where the middle is - how much ink to use, and how hard to press.Leave these to dry for about an hour.
vii) Roll each invitation scroll (start rolling from the bottom of the invitation with it face up) so that it's small enough to slide into your ties - it will expand to fit the tie as you let go.
viii) Now roll up the replies as above - but as tight as you can. You'll need a friend here - so get someone to hold each reply scroll as you tie the ribbon around it. Try one first - when you've done it - it should slide inside the invitation scroll. If it didn't - do it again - but roll tighter!
ix) Place each scroll set into a postal tube. If you have printed or written your guests names, make sure you have stuck the address labels onto the postal tubes so you don't forget who each invitation is for! Add a pinch of rose petals or confetti inside each tube for the finishing touch.
