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.

Do you know if the template is the correct size for the mail? Sometimes if your invitation is more square you need extra postage.

@Rotary Paper Trimmer… I only had to pay regular first-class mail postage, no extra postage :)

This was really helpful, and the theme looks great too.
