Wedding invitation No. 2: The wrap

1. Print or photocopy your text onto the small card. Consider centering the main text so that it will be obscured by the belly wrap, as shown. To accomplish this, experiment with the line spacing of the text and the width of the wrap.

2. Center small card on large card and secure it with one mini Glue Dot under each corner.

3. On the cutting mat, with the metal ruler as a guide, use a craft knife or paper cutter to slice colored paper into fifty 2½- by 10-inch strips.

4. To form a belly wrap, fold one strip of paper around each invitation and secure strip to itself with two Glue Dots.
