Spray paint for paper (matte black)
Printed Invitations (you can make your own or purchase a template of this design)
Dust the doilies across back and forth using spray paint. For better results, don’t paint it solid black. It would look better if it’s a little muddled to resemble an aged iron. Flip the doilies over and do the back portion. Let it dry for 5-10 mins.
Get your invitation and RSVP template (print it out from MS Word) and cut it using paper cutter.
Mount the invitation onto your doily using double-sided tape together with the RSVP card. After which, you can start folding the doily to cover your cards like an envelope. Finish off by sticking a ribbon at the middle and placing the name plate over the ribbon.
And your Vintage Iron invitation is done!
