The save-the-date measures 4″ x 5.5″. Page 2 and 3 contains the main save-the-date template that creates 4 save-the-dates. Page contains the vellum wrap template that creates 2 vellum wraps. Blue sailboat image is included in the template.
Print page 3 on the back of page 2. Cut on gray solid lines. Print page 4 on vellum. Cut on gray solid lines. Score vellum in the middle. Wrap vellum on save-the-date. Hole punch on gray circles.
Cut 11″ of knot. Using a lighter or stove top, melt the ends of the knot to avoid fraying. Insert knot into the holes and make a square knot. Click here for instructions on how to make a square knot.
