French Country party invitations

This picture is from the Graphic Fairy. I played with it on Photoshop.
Used the bandage erasing tool. Erased the print and replaced it by my text.

Then printed them in wallet sizes.

Chose the color of blank card stock.

Then i chose 2 different fabrics. A tassel.
Fringe the gingham fabric with scissors.

I added a button and cut the back with my jewelry pliers.

Glued it all together. You can hot glue it too. It is faster. I used a small glue gun.

You can also place the tassel on the bottom to make a mark page.
Put a hole on the top and pretty ribbon for a tag.

The party links are on my bar.
