Hi, this is Anna Skye invitation template designer at Download & Print. Today I want to share with you a lovely chevron wedding invitation that you can personalize and print at home for about 30¢ each.

The graduated chevron pattern in emerald blues would be perfect for a modern beach wedding. I enjoy the feeling of suspense this invitation creates as you slide off the monogram band to reveal the event details below. Follow the step-by-step photos below to make this invitation.

Open the template files in Microsoft Word. Type in your wording and print on 8.5 x 11 Cardstock.

Trim the invitation card along the dotted lines with a paper cutter. This will result in two 5×;7 inch invitations.

Take the printed chevron band and score the fold lines. Take a ruler and x-acto knife, blade side updecorative pillow shams, to mark the fold lines. The fold lines are indicated on the printed template. This will ensure that your band fits sung with the invitation.

Trim the band along the dotted lines with a paper cutter. This will yield in two 3 x 10.5 inch chevrons bands.

All Cutting Done! With both invitation and band cut out it's time to start assembling.

Fold the band along the score lines and press the folds with your hands.

Use double sided tape to seal the band. The pieces will overlap to hide the tape and create a fished look.

Slip the band over the invitation and position so it's covering all of your event wording. Use an A7 envelope to mail this invitation to family and friends.

Finding the right accessories to add style and warmth to a home is the first step to redecorating. Sometimes the simple materials people overlook are the best option for such kind of job. Tapestries are one of the great ways to add color and elegance to any room in a home.

Pennant Garlands are everywhere and we still can’t get enough. This weekend, I tried one with yarn! It was really fun to make and pretty quick. Oh, and you can make this in bed, a total plus for crochet in general. I think these would be A-dorable on the mantle for Christmas strung from stocking to stocking.
