Save The Date - By The Numbers!

A unique Save the Date - this is what I am sharing tonight. I see a lot of them, so when something different catches my eye I save it! This Save The Date would surely get me talking about the wedding I was saving the date for! I would even hang it over my wall calendar just to have something a little different! And, my little crafty friends, this would be a breeze for you! So....what you need:

  • Punch Kit Number Stamper - like this one here for $21.99
  • You need a liner for the inside of the envelope. If your colors are green - you are in luck! Just download this template here. For other colors you could just copy of paste the lines, put it in your own word processor and change the colors!
  • A small ribbon
  • A card to "anchor" the ribbon and numbers to - I personally think using a shaped card would be fun! Like these: Scalloped cards from Paper-Source. They sell in packs of 20 - but there is a great sale going on over there right now! 

So the site says that the number puncher they used was a little larger so you will have to check it out and make sure the smaller numbers will work for you. The other little idea I was was maybe adding text or an image on the Scalloped paper...and doing the paper on each side (so they can hang the banner!!). I just think this is really adorable and totally unique....and you can save a HUGE amount of money doing this! Also, that number puncher you bought? Could so easily be used again for things in the wedding (seating/escort card, table numbers, favors, etc!).

Since we are on Save The Dates....don't forget to check out my old blog post I did back in January! There are a couple of cool ideas I think that you will really like!
