Fabulously Wed DIY Project: Chic Graph Paper Save The Dates

Hello FABULOUS readers!  I was browsing some of my favorite pretty paper blogs and I came across this unique and super cute DIY Save The Date project on Oh So Beautiful Paper. Crafted and designed by Antiquaria, these would be perfect for a couple of techies, mathmeticians or science buffs! Really affordable and very easy, they can also be designed for other types of invitations such as an engagement party, rehearsal dinner or just because!  Check it out...
Step One: Choose the paper you wish to stamp on (a list of options fol­lows below) and lay it on a flat sur­face.  Ink the stamp; we used the “Sketch­book” save the date stamp for this design.
Step Two:  Once you have all of your images stamped, use a paper cut­ter or a cut­ting mat, x-acto knife and ruler to cut them to the cor­rect size.  Our sug­ges­tion is to give 1/8″ to 1/4″ of bor­der on each side of your image.
Step Three: Tear pieces of dec­o­ra­tive washi tape to secure the stamped image in place on the backer (size A6).  If you want the stamped image to be more securely affixed to the back­ing, use spray adhe­sive to adhere them together.

Mate­ri­als List:
Cus­tom rub­ber stamp: “Sketch­book” Save the Date
Dec­o­ra­tive Paper: (this can be found at your local office sup­ply store, thrift stores, estate or garage sales or in your own office!)  Or, if you want, go here to print your own cus­tomiz­able graph paper for free!!
Paper cut­ter or self heal­ing matt, X-acto and ruler
Color Box Stamp Pad: We chose a rust/brown color for this tutorial
Back­ing Paper: We used pre-cut Kraft card stock, size A6

Until Next Time, Stay Fabulous!
