Hemp twine and earth tones make it rustic, bold fonts make it modern, and a personalized tag makes it fun like a present. Inspired by my personal obsessions with western fonts, twine wraps, and Kraft, I am very excited to share this rustic wedding invitation design template & tutorial with fellow DIYers.

Note: Heavyweight 111 lb Gmund Colors card stock was printed using a high end ink jet printer.
4. Cut Tags from 8 1/2 x 11 Card Stock
Using a paper trimmer (or other preferred cutting tool) cut along the printed guidelines to yield 20 individual invitation tags.
5. Punch Holes in Tags
Punch a hole in the corner of each tag using a standard hole punch.
6. Adhere Printed Invitation Card to Backer Card
Adhere your printed 4 7/8 x 6 7/8″ invitation card to your 5 1/8 x 7″ backer card using the adhesive of your choice.
7. Wrap Twine Around Invitation & Response
Wrap approximately 40 inches of twine several times around your invitation and response card. Wrap the twine so that both loose ends end up in the front of the invitation. The beauty of twine is that it is supposed to look rough and rustic, so do not worry too much about your wrapping method.
8. Fasten Tag to Twine
Thread one loose end of twine through the hole in one of your invitation tags. Letting the tag hang loosely in the center of the invitation, secure in place by tying the two loose ends into a knot or a bow
And You’re Done!
