To assemble, center and mount the invitation card to the invitation mat using Zip Dry Glue or another adhesive, then mount the invitation and mat to the center panel of the pocket.
Tuck the RSVP card under the flap of the RSVP envelope, stack and straighten your inserts, and neatly place them in the pocket on the right.
To line your envelope, place a line of adhesive (Zip Dry Glue or use a tape dispenser) just along the flap of the envelope liner and carefully slide in the envelope. Press down firmly to secure once in place. Fold up your pocket, secure with a belly band, and slide into your pre-addressed envelope. We recommend sealing with an envelope moistener with adhesive for a secure seal.
