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.
