  7. Poppy Pocket Fold Wedding Invitation Template

    Anna Skye of Download and Print, via Budget Savvy Bride


    8-½" x 11" card stock
    Scissors or paper cutter
    Gold pocket fold invitation (optional)
    Double sided tape (optional)
    Microsoft Word


    1. Download the templates for the the invitation, enclosure card 1 and enclosure card 2. You should end up with three files: the invitation, and two enclosure cards. Open the templates in Microsoft Word and add your wording. (See suggested fonts below.)
    2. Print the templates on 8.5" x 11" cardstock. 67lb paper works best, and white or cream would compliment the design nicely. 3. Using scissors or a paper cutter, trim along the dotted lines. The finished size of the invitation is 5" x 7″ and fits an A7 envelope. Both enclosure cards should be trimmed to 3.5" x 5″ and fit a 4-bar envelope.
    Tip: Be sure to hold the paper against the top edge of the paper cutter for straight cuts.
    4. Optional: For a polished look mount the invitation to a gold pocket fold invitation and place the enclosure cards inside. Pocket folds cost approximately $1.25-2.00 each, but really give the package a high-end look. The pocket fold shown in the picture is from Marsupial Online. A less expensive option can be found at Paper and More.
    Tip: The best way to adhere the invitation to the pocket is with double sided tape. A glue stick will cause wrinkles.
