1. To make the tags, first download our clip art, and email the file to a rubber-stamp maker (or save it onto a disk, and deliver it), who will then turn our art into rubber stamps. Next, simply stamp the images onto card stock and cut into rectangular stubs. Notch the corners using a circle punch, and make a hole at the left edge using a tiny regular hole punch. Thread several together with metallic cord.

2. To make the "Admit One" ticket stubs, print our clip art onto card stock. Using a craft knife and metal ruler, cut between the solid crop marks (do not cut all the way to the edges; this will leave the crop marks intact for subsequent cuts). Then, using a bone folder and a straightedge, score the fold line, then fold in half. 

3. To make the actual invitation, choose one of our two clip-art designs (Invitation 1 or Invitation 2), and print onto card stock. (One 8 1/2-by-11-inch sheet yields two cards.) Using a craft knife and a metal ruler, cut between the solid crop marks (do not cut all the way to the edges; this will leave the crop marks intact for subsequent cuts). Notch the corners using a circle punch. Then have a calligrapher pen in all the pertinent information (your names and the date, time, and location of your wedding). 

4. With a Japanese hole punch, make a hole at the top center or top left-hand corner of your invitations, string a cord through invitation and tags, and knot.
