Plus, there are so many ways to add an extra, personal touch to the pieces and this rustic, wood-and-vellum idea is one of our favorites, especially if you’re having a more casual or alfresco celebration.

Birch wood veneer cut into 5″ x 7″ pieces

Idea #1: Tied with Twine

Supplies:
1/16″ hole punch
Twine
Mini glue dots

Steps:

1. Place one glue dot on each of the four corners of the wood veneer sheet and line up the vellum-printed invitation on top.

2. Near the top, punch two holes about 1″ apart from each other and tie a bow in the center with twine.

Idea #2: Gold Fasteners

Supplies:
• 1/16″ hole punch
• Mini gold fasteners
• Mini glue dots (optional)

Steps:

1. Lay the vellum-printed invitation over the wood veneer sheet. Hold the card in place (or place glue dots) and punch a hole in each of the four corners.

2. Place your fasteners through the holes and split the legs to fasten them in place.

Idea #3: Tied with Ribbon

Supplies:
• 1/8″ hole punch
• Ribbon
• Mini glue dots

Steps:

1. Place one glue dot on each of the four corners of the wood veneer sheet and line up the vellum-printed invitation on top.

2. Punch two holes about 1.5″ apart from each other, centered from the top.

3. With the design facing up, weave one end of the ribbon through each hole. Flip the invitation over and repeat, weaving each end of the ribbon back through again, through the opposite hole.

4. Trim the ribbon ends if necessary and use glue dots to affix them in place.
