Belly band DIY

Here is a quick tutorial for cute belly bands that I put around the inner envelopes of our invitations.

Supplies: scissors, ribbon, hot glue gun


Take two pieces of ribbon, the longer one is about 11 inches, and the shorter one is about eight.


Make a circle out of each ribbon by slapping some glue on the ends.


Take a smaller piece of ribbon (about an inch and a half) and wrap it around the center smaller circle; glue the back together.


I like to take the assembly line approach, so I repeated this step about 90 times.


Now, take one of the bows and glue it to the larger circle.




The finished product: our inner envelopes with a cute belly band that I estimate to cost about 10 cents or less a pop!

I originally saw this idea on weddingbee many months ago and unfortunately can not remember the original blogger. 😦 Ah, life before pinterest, makes me so thankful for the capabilities to “pin” things, thus remembering where the original idea came from. I absolutely love these bows, they are super quick to make and look classy, preppy, and chic.

Have you tackled and easy DIY projects lately?

  1. Gosh what did we do when we did not have pinterest? Maybe actually get work done? haha. I love how creative and artsy you are – you must be saving a TONS of money on the wedding by being able to do a lot of the decor yourself!
