Have you tried your hand at creating wedding invitations with your scrapbooking supplies? Whether traditionally, digitally, or hybrid, this is a challenging yet rewarding project. Handmade means unique!
If you are making them for yourself or a friend, you may want proceed this way. Create a design that you’re happy with. Be sure it’s not too complicated and time-consuming to create! Assemble the materials, gather some friends, and make them in assembly line style. The first few are fun, but as time goes on they get monotonous – that’s why you need to do this with a bunch of friends!
If you are hoping to offer invitations for sale, make up some good designs and put them up on Etsy and see what happens! One hint, people like all different types of styles so mix up your offerings. Make some classical and traditional styles and also some trendy and modern samples. if you get into wedding invitations, you can always do save the date cards, thank you cards, place cards, RSVP cards and wedding programs as well.
