Save the Date

I love paper and have spent countless hours just fawning over the endless textures and colours. I especially love hand made papers and when I found this dark blue paper in Paperchase, I knew I had to use it somehow.

I’d seen an idea for a seed packet which I decided to adapt for my save the date cards. Using an origami pattern for a Chinese wallet I created a little pocket, which I then lined with tissue as an extra finishing touch.

A hand written insert informed guests of the date simply and effectively. I finished it off with a thin grey ribbon to keep the pocket together. A lovely comment I had was that it wasn't just a save the date, it was a save the invite.
