save the date cards DIY wedding

I love.love.love. how our save the date cards turned out! I knew I wanted something organic and unique to reflect our DIY wedding style and this was perfect. Before you go and say how creative I am, I totally got this idea off of Pinterest! The link I originally saw was: ‘Tie the Knot’ Save the Date Cards
….and I just put my own spin on it!
But for visual purposes here are my steps!
(Make sure you also check out my DIY will you be my bridesmaid gifts I made my girls!)

I got a little carried away and cut all the paper before taking a picture….but you get the idea 😉

I adore this little knot concept. When you open the save the date card, the knot gets tied!
The raffia ribbon that was used in the original blog post I found was gorgeous but just not me. So I opted for grey+blush bakers twine instead! Our wedding colors will more than likely be a pale grey and blush pink.Unfortunately the post office wouldn’t let me mail these as-is. I found some small (3×5) kraft envelopes that I will mail them in and also bought organic floral stamps so the whole concept flows together.
**If you decide to make similar cards be sure to take one to your local post office and check how they need to be mailed. I almost wasted all my stamps putting them ON the cards but am glad I made a trip to the post office to check!**
{Yes, I still call my God Parents “John E Pooh” and “Leigh Z Pooh”. Don’t judge. 😉 }

These only took me about 3-4 hours to put together after I got them printed and cut the bakers twine.

I would love to see pictures of your save the date cards! Whether you make some like this or in your own unique way feel free to post a link to your projects as a comment to this post. DIY projects are my guilty pleasure!

I hope you enjoyed seeing these!

I didn’t do save the date cards when I got married, and now this makes me a sad panda. But, I can’t wait to have this on my fridge for the next 5 years or so, ’cause you know that’s what’s going to happen!!! 😉

Hello! I am super interested in making these save the dates for my wedding, I am curious as to how you went through the whole process of getting them printed?
Did you write out what you wanted and then they picked a font and printed for you?
Also what type of paper did you use?
You did an amazing job!

Thankyou for your time,

Hello, I love these and going to try to make something similar. Do you have a template you used to create this? Would you be willing to share it with me?
Also what size paper did you use?
