RSVP 3 1/2” x 5” = 4 to a sheet (postcard)
Accommodations 3 1/2” x 4 1/4” = 4 to a sheet

I created and formatted the design for each invitation and inserts on Microsoft Word. The fonts used were Albemarle Swash and Aubrey, downloaded free from
We printed everything ourselves at home. We took everything to FedEx to have the paper cut with their laser cutter ($1.25/cut x 24 cuts).

Once everything is cut, you can assemble the invitations. Apply a strip of adhesive on all four sides of the mat and place on the center of the pocketfold. Repeat this step on the invitation and place on top of the mat. Place one of each insert into the pocket in descending order.

Once finished, center the invite on the belly band. Secure the band on the back of the invite with some glue. Wrap the band with a piece of raffia and hold secure. Squeeze a small amount of wax over the raffia and press down the seal. Let it sit for a minute or two. I recommend practicing on scrap paper before you start sealing the invitations.
