Then I simply used glue stick (the same kind you use for scrapbooking) to attach the ivory square to the green square.
Once all the squares are assembled and the glue is dry, you are ready to make belly bands.
You will need:
- Ribbon (I used 1" wide organza ribbon)
- Squares (assembled above)
- An assembled pocketfold invitation (with all inserts)
- Glue dots
- Wrap your ribbon around your invitation. You want about an inch of overlap, you also want to wrap the invitation somewhat loosely so that guests will be able to easily slide the belly band off. Once you are able to figure out the length you need, cut the ribbon and use that length as a template to cut the rest of your ribbon.
- Take a piece of cut ribbon and wrap it around an invitation, secure in place with two glue dots. Note how my invitation remains slightly open after the ribbon is wrapped and secured, this is how you want yours to look.
- Attach the square over the glue dots used to secure the ribbon with two additional glue dots.
- Place the invitation square side down, and repeat for each additional invitation. I found that the weight of the invitations being stacked was enough to crease the ribbon at the sides and hold the invitations closed. Some people also like to stack all the invitations and put a weight on top for 24-hours.
