Doily Wedding Dress Bridal Shower Invitation

Introduction: Doily Wedding Dress Bridal Shower Invitation

I wanted to make simple elegant bridal shower invitations for my best friends shower. Something that was not too complicated yet still original.These are super easy and fun to make.

Step 1: Folding Doily to Create Dress Bottom

Take a 6 inch doily and fold it over not quite in half. Fold the two sides inward towards eachother leaving about a 1/2 inch space between the two sides at the top. This will be the bottom of the dress.

Step 2: Glue Dress Bottom Onto Outside of Card

Hot glue bottom of dress to a 5in x 6.5in folding card.

Step 3: Dress Top

Glue another doily to a white piece of paper using a glue stick. Wait till dry. Then cut paper and doily in half. Then cut out bottom of doily. Proceed to cut doily into smaller 1in pieces. This will be the top to our dress. Hot glue onto card and add bow of your choice.

Step 4: Inside of Card

Print out wording onto cardstock paper then proceed to cut edges with your choice of scrapbook edging scissors. Hot glue onto inside of card.

Step 5: Supplies Needed

    great for making a card for the happy couple putting this on the outside. If you wanted you could use chalks to color the dress. You could even glue the bottom half of the dress so the side with the folds show, putting a flower or bow in the center where the 2 sides come together at the waist. Lots of ways to work with this. Thank you.

    Very cute. Consider maybe blurring/crossing out the email and location addresses just in case you don't want extra visitors.
