Additional Craft Information:

Getting a printable wedding invitation for your wedding is a great idea. Printable invites mean that you don't have to drive out to the mall or shops to order personalized invites. You can just stay at home and make them yourself. Like the invitations you get at the store, you can pick out the design, create a message, choose the color, and change the font when creating your wedding invitation online. It's easy, fast and affordable. However, some people still would not consider ordering their wedding invites online. This article will talk about the benefits of printable invites. Variety, speed and price.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

There are thousands of printable wedding invitation designs that you can choose on the internet. First, you have to look for a site that offers card designs and templates, preferably one that also has printing services so you will not have to bother with printing the cards out yourself. Use the theme of your wedding when you are looking for a design so it would be easier. You can also scan through the site's list of categories and pick the one that is the closes to your wedding's theme. Don't worry about the little details like color and font since you will be able to change this after you choose the design. Once you finish choosing a printable wedding invitation design, customize and personalize it until you get the look that you want. The sites usually have a card maker that walks you through how to change the details of the design so it's very easy.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

Normally, if you order your invitations from special stationary shops, it would take about 3 weeks to a month for them to finish and send it to you. Sometimes you even have to pick them yourself. With a printable wedding invitation, you can get the personalized invites sent to you in under 2 weeks. This makes it easier for you to give them out to your guests since they have a longer time span to RSVP and you can spend the time doing other to-do chores for your wedding.

For the price range of a printable wedding invitation, you can get them for as little as 2 dollars per piece. You can save a lot since most special stationary shops charge more or less 5 to 8 dollars per invitation. Just because they are less expensive, does not mean that they have a lower quality. The paper and cards used on the printable wedding invitation and envelopes are the same ones used at the stores so you are not sacrificing quality over price.

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
