When planning a DIY wedding deciding on decor that’s beautiful but doesn’t break the bank can be a challenge. Thankfully paper is relatively inexpensive and there are so many stunning specialty papers available that really make paper decor look elegant. Vellum is the perfect paper for a wedding, and vellum with metallic print on it is even better! Check out this Vellum Wedding Banner I made with the Sheer Metallic collection.
First I die cut the letters from silver heart vellum paper with my electronic die cutting machine, and then I cut the same letters from white cardstock to back the vellum and give it more support. (Plus the silver metallic hearts really stand out that way too!)
Then I cut some heart shapes from silver and gold metallic textured cardstock, adding a smaller vellum heart to the center of the gold one. I used permanent glue dots to adhere the hearts and letters together, making sure to attach both the tops and bottoms of the taller letters so the banner would be sturdy.
Finally, I used my Crop-A-Dile to add Wide Shimmer Eyelets to the outside edges of the silver hearts and then I added some silver metallic ribbon for hanging. You can create your own custom vellum wedding garland with the names of the bride and groom, or whatever other text you’d like.
You can even create matching favor boxes and thank you cards too!
