1.) Petal Invitation on its Own
One of the best things about using laser cut petal folds in your wedding invitations is that they make a statement all on their own. You don’t need to add much to create a stunning suite.
Just add your square invitation card to the center, plus an RSVP card and envelope. Then fold the whole thing up and carefully slide into your mailing envelope without any other add-ons.
To assemble: Just mount your square invitation card to the center of the petal fold with a tape dispenser.
Add your RSVP card and envelope, and any other inserts you would like to include before folding your petal fold up completely and carefully sliding it into your mailing envelope.

2.) With a Simple Belly Band
For a simple and sophisticated embellishment (and an easy way to hold down the petals of your invitation) wrap a belly band around your invitation suite.
Our “long” belly band fits perfectly on these petal folds. You can opt for a thin version, too, or even have belly bands custom printed.
To assemble: Once your invitation is mounted to your petal fold, carefully fold the edges of the petal fold inward.
Then lay your belly band on top of your folded petal invitation so that it’s straight and centered. Fold one side to the back, then flip over, pull the loose side tight, and line up with the already folded side. Seal with tape or a Glue Dot in the back, making sure it is tight and secure to keep your petal fold closed.
Now that your petal fold is wrapped securely, you can easily slide it into your envelope of choice!

3.) Tied up with String
Tying your petal fold closed with string or ribbon is a charming way to present your invitation to your guests.
To assemble: After your invitation is mounted to your petal fold, carefully fold the edges of the petal fold inward.
Tie your string around your petal invitation just like you’d wrap a present! Once you have your string cut, lay it on top of your folded petal fold invitation so that it’s straight and centered. Then flip it over, cross the string in the back, and wrap it around the opposite sides. Flip it over to the front again and tie the two ends into a small bow. Trim the ends to your desired length.
Slide your prettily packaged invitation into the mailing envelope of your choice.
