My husband got me the best gift, this custom stamp kit, that I used to stamp the phrase “Happily Ever After.” The kit has detachable letters and numbers so you can customize your stamp!
I stamped some vintage poetry paper that I found at an antique store and cut out the “Happily Ever After” into thin strips. Then I used this Martha Stewart heart confetti punch to make heart confetti.
Then I used a tape roller to stick the “Happily Ever After” tag on a glassine envelope filled with poetry paper and music sheet heart confetti, punched a hole in the top of the envelope, and tied it to the invitation with bakers twine.
Another lovely invitation tied up with string!
Add a touch of fall, with some leaves …
I wanted to use real dead leaves, but I live in LA, where it was impossible to find any. Oh seasons, where are you? So I settled for these awesome Wood Leaves and Die Cut Leaves from Paper Source. I went back to my custom stamp and added a little “Happily Ever After” for an extra touch.
I tied the “Happily Ever After” wood leaf to the invitation using bakers twine.
And then I put it all together! The great thing about using fake leaves is that they are flatter and easier to handle and mail, and you can stamp cute sayings on them. The above invitation I tied with jute twine instead of bakers twine, I thought it looked better with this particular leaf.

Add some doilies …
This is a super easy and cute addition to your invitation! All you need are two large doilies, and some bakers twine. First, fold each doily in half. Then, place one of them on either side of your invitation.
And look at this adorable detail I found on the back of the invite, love it!
