Including touches of gold accents to your wedding invitations and envelopes is the perfect way to add a little extra elegance without a lot of cost. On a recent trip to the craft store, I came across a gold leafing pen and I knew I had the perfect project in mind. Here are some ways you can do it yourself…
– Minted Wedding Invitations printed on Luxe Museum Board & Minted Wedding Envelopes (be sure to order plenty of extras for any mishaps)
– Sheets of 8.5 x 11 paper
– 18kt. Gold Leafing Pen (found at Michaels Arts & Crafts Store)
– Chip Clip
Step 2: Using a chip clip, tightly stack together a set of 4 wedding invitations.
Step 3: Hold the stack of invitations firmly as you begin to carefully paint the edges of the invitations. Allow them to dry completely, then repeat on all edges.
Step 1: Place a sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper on a smooth and sturdy surface. Then, place an opened envelope (adhesive flap side facing down) on top of the paper. Use another sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper on top of the envelope, except leave a 1/4″ strip of the envelope flap visible.
There you have it! A great solution for adding metallic finishing touches to your beautiful Minted Wedding Invitations. The fun doesn’t have to stop here either. Why not use the gold leafing pen on some kraft wedding favor boxes or table number cards? The possibilities are endless.
