  • 1.4"-wide natural rustic burlap (Hessian) ribbon
  • Suitable 0.6"-wide printed, unbleached linen ribbon

    Tip: In this example, a wedding-related word, such as I Do; …bride & groom…; Love You! etc were printed on the linen ribbon, but anything suitable could be used.

  2. Give the paper doily an uneven spray with the gold spray paint and allow to dry.

  3. Score the caramel cardstock to create a card sized 5.7" x 4.1".
