DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

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.

DIY wedding invites are definitely a great style for you to add more personal features into and the wedding will also consequently get more charming and memorable. Besides the DIY cards offer the chance having unique and unparallel. And the following are some tips you may need when considering a DIY wedding.

Use accents to of your theme

It's a good idea to have your color scheme arranged before you start pulling your invites together, are you going for a strong color scheme? Do you want to tie in the color and style of flowers, bridesmaids dresses, decor in the ceremony and/ or reception room, table decorations, cake icing or decoration – there's so much that you can incorporate.

It might, however, be difficult to condense the essence of all your wedding theme into a garden invitation so whether you've gone for simple and beautiful or minute detail, try to pick one or two elements to include in your invite. Often simple is more effective and will look clean and fresh – avoid stuffing your invite design with fussy details – think clean, classic and beautiful!

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).

Where to buy

There are hundreds of online stores where you can buy anything from blank invite card and envelopes to sequins, feathers, stencils – the lot. You just need to shop around for the best deal. Buying in bulk is a good idea to cut down cost so if you're planning to do save the date card, RSVP's, your own gift list or evening invites and thank you cards for afterwards – try to purchase the basics of what you'll need before you start.

You should sit down to work out exactly what you need before you get going with making the invites, including glue, ink, scissors etc – you don't want to be half way through decorating your invitations and run out of the crucial butterfly sequin you want to add to them all.

If you are lucky enough to have an arts and craft shop near you, it's worth popping in to see what they have in store. Nothing beats getting a feel for what you want to use in your invites – if they are more expensive you can always buy samples as part of your research and then head to Google to find the same thing cheaper!

So, you have all your bits and pieces, now you just need to get into some serious trial and error and figure out what looks good – what looks good, doesn't cost the earth and important detail not to be overlooked – what will be relatively easy to create. This brings me nicely on to…

In a word, DIY wedding cards are always so popular for a reason. First of all, if you are tired of having similar designs like many others do, you can really take full use of your imagination and try to make the cards more charming and attractive. Read more on
