Veneer Stationery

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring

Thanks to its distinctive, natural vibe, you might say this stationery, crafted from sheets of veneer and paper-backed wood, goes against the grain. Calligrapher and stationer Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls created the letterpress invitation; for an envelope, she folded a paper-thin sheet around the card. The favor box, tied with waxed twine, is by Lenderink Technologies.

Envelope How-To
Turn a 10 1/2-by-11 1/2-inch sheet of paper-backed wood or decorative paper into an envelope for a 5 1/2-by-8 1/2-inch card.

1. Lay the card as shown on wrong side of paper. Place a ruler along bottom edge; use a bone folder to score a crease across the paper. Repeat on other sides.

2. Fold up bottom along scored line.

3. Fold in left and right sides; affix with double-sided tape.

4. Fold down top; seal with tape.
