Custom Wedding Stamps for the DIY Bride

Hello, hello! It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question! Bride-to-be Allison is tackling some DIY projects, including her wedding invitations. She asks, “I purchased printable wedding invitations and I’m now putting together the response cards and envelopes. I need to include my return address on the envelope but I’m not very skilled with my computer and printer. Any advice?” The easiest way to add your return address to response card envelopes and other paper goods is with a return address stamp. Custom wedding stamps are designed for your event, incorporate your theme, and can be used in perpetuity. Plus, you don’t have to worry about using a computer or printer. And, unlike an address label (which we loathe for formal events), a stamp will look totally elegant and professional. To inspire you, we’ve rounded up some custom wedding stamps spotted over at Olive Berry Paper. Which one catches your eye?

12 Brilliant Ways to Wrap with Kraft Paper

Wrapping gifts – whether it be for the holidays, birthdays, or wedding favors and gifts – is more than just patterned paper and a roll of Scotch tape. The holidays are fast approaching, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for wrapped paper and tape by the case. What if this year you pledged to take a more handmade approach? With just a few items like kraft paper, ribbon, and other embellishments (lace, doilies, burlap, fabric, and more) you can turn an ordinary gift into one that packs a delightfully charming punch. Today, we’re showcasing twelve of our favorite ways to wrap with kraft paper while playing with color and adding personalized, artistic touches. Whether you wrap with kraft paper for the holidays, for wedding favors, bridal party gifts, birthdays, or just because, you can be assured the gift recipient will take notice and appreciate you going that extra handmade mile.

(above) Up first, this gift idea features wrap with kraft paper and tied with twine. A white box inside is filled with yummy cookies and presented with the gift’s name as a tag atop each one. What could be better? We spotted this pretty gift wrap idea via Pinterest via The New Home Ec, which is originally from Project Wedding and photographed by Chelsea Fuss. We love this simple yet elegant design.

For a bridesmaid gift that is wrapped up in charm, wrap with kraft paper and twine. Hand-calligraph, add a locket wrapped around it and a small bouquet of flowers for added whimsy. What a beautiful gift! Not only is there a gift inside the wrapping, but there is the added gift of the locket and flowers plus the sentiment of having it all put together by you. Love it!
