    Step 1 - Work out what size you'd like your invitations to be and then fold the piece of card in half horizontally. Take the lace and wrap it around the front of the invitation and glue it at the back to hold it in place.

    Step 3 - Do the same with the thinner piece of ribbon; make sure it sits in the middle of the wider piece. For this tutorial we have used white and lilac ribbon, as this creates a vintage look. However you can use different colours and materials to suit your colour scheme.

    Step 4 - Cover the inside of the invitation with paper. Use the card size as a template when you cut the paper to make sure it is the right size. For a professional look, you can print out the wording and use a nice font, or handwrite each invitation for a more vintage, personalised feel. Position the paper and glue it in place.
