So i wanted the most possible blinged out card box without spending a fortune. I finally finished...
These hot little diy invitations were made for a girls night out in honor of the Bride to be and I think they look great! A simple tri-fold card with eyelets and black satin ribbon tied up like a corset... awesome. The invitation is printed on to white cardstock with a scalloped edge. You can buy some cheap craft scissors for that. See more instructions below.

Instructions for these corset invitations will fit an A2 sized envelope
* 3/8" round eyelets (x8)
* eyelet setting tool
* 3/8" hole punch tool from craft store or scrapbook shop
* Black ribbon - thickness should be 3/4" or double the diameter of the eyelets.
*Cardstock 8 ¼"" x 5 1/2"
*Card inserts 4" x 5¼"
tip - the Crop-A-Dile tool is a good tool which punches holes and sets your eyelets.
1. Take your cardstock and score a fold at 2 " and 6 ¼"" along the length of the card
2.Mark a point 1" down from the top left corner of the card. Rule a line from the top left crease down to the point. Cut along this line with a craft knife and a straight edge.
3.Repeat step two for the right hand side.
4.Punch four holes along the side edge of the card 1/2" in from the side. Frist hole should be approx 1/2" from the bottom, 2nd hole 1 5/8", 3rd hole 2 6/8", 4th hole 3 7/8".
5. Repeat for the right side of the card.
6.Create your insert and type or hand write the invitation details on to it. You can decoate the top and bottom edge with decorative scissors or pinking shears.
7. Fold the card and thread the ribbon like you would a corset or shoe laces starting from the bottom. Tie a bow at the top.
8.Slip in the insert and you are done.
