Kraft cardboard and the full colours of good dried lavender go together very well. Today I felt like doing a little DIY project. Make your own lavender invitation card from Kraft cardboard and lavender. You can, of course, buy envelopes and cards, but I happened to have Kraft cardboard. Besides, you can make your lavender invitation card so much more personal.
What you need:
- Lavender flowers on stem
- Embroidery thread or string
- if you want buttons to close the envelope
I cut the envelope to size with a knife. The card the same. The envelope is a long flap with two folds in the right place. Then you only have to close it on the two sides. I chose to sew that on with embroidery thread in a matching colour.
Heavenly scent and Melissa Lilac
I picked out two kinds of beautiful lavender flowers: heavenly scent, as the name suggests, with a wonderful scent and also a beautiful dark blue lavender flower. And Melilla lilac, an angustfolia that smells sweet and has a beautiful lilac colour.
How to attach the lavender stems to your invitation card?
Then it was a bit of a struggle to attach the lavender stems to the card.
I am not happy with all the options I made. At the end I like best the lavender invitation cards that where most simple to make. A hole or cut in the bottom where you put the lavender stem. Somewhere halfway you attach the lavender with the same embroidery thread, a bow on the back and that’s it.
Now I need to practise my lettering so I can send out my cards. 🙂
