Wallpaper: DIY wedding invitation resource!

Home Fashions for 1955 We found this fantastic book of wall paper samples at the flea a couple weeks ago - it's full of great patterns that would be perfect for making DIY wedding invitations and cards!

How would you use these papers, you might ask? There are so many possibilities! The  photo above shows just a couple of examples:

- Double-pasting to the back of the invitation - we recommend mixing different patterns! - Belly bands - Envelope liners (get an easy DIY kit here)

Can't find enough of an unusual vintage pattern? If it's in the public domain, you can scan and reproduce it with a color printer. Or, just use the patterns as inspiration in designing your own wedding invitations.

Wallpaper can also be used for napkin rings, place mats, and to cover containers for your wedding reception!
