Scroll Wedding Invitations | How to make your own scroll invitation

Sara and I have had a lot of people ask about our scroll wedding invitations and where you could get the wood to make them. Here is a video I made that tells you how we made them. I also have some info about where we got the wood with some links below..

When we first decided that we wanted to use scrolls for our invitations we looked online and found a few places but it was going to cost about 1800 for 50 invitations so that when we decided to do them ourselves.

Things Needed:
1. Dowel Rods – http://www.bearwood.com
2. Dowel Caps – http://www.bearwood.com¬†{3/4″ cap with a 1/4″ hole}
3. Stain
4. Resume Paper (Or any paper with 2 color tones that looks old)
5. Lighter
6. Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue (Michaels)
7. Ribbon (Michaels)
8. Sparkly Perfume
9. Cardboard Boxes http://www.uline.com
10. Shipping Labels

1. I bought some wooden rods, wooden caps that fit the rods and cut them to the size I needed.
2. Stained the wood with a dark stain.
3. Typed out what I wanted on the invitations on resume paper.
4. Took a lighter and burned the edges of the paper to make it look old.
5. Sprayed the paper with some glitter perfume to make it shine and smell good (Sara’s Idea:)
6. Used Tacky Glue to glue the rods to the paper.
7. Wait about a day for the glue to dry, then roll them tightly
8. Tie a bow around the scroll with the 2 color ribbons
9. Bought cardboard boxes to send them in. – http://www.uline.com
10. Printed out shipping labels.

    How much did it end up costing you to make these on your own?

    Also – What kind of boxes did you order to mail them?

    Hi Paige! Off the top of my head I am not sure exactly how much it costed us to buy all the materials to make them. It was only a few items so it didn’t cost us much. It was more of the time making them but that was the fun part! :)
