I think it looks great! The two cards don’t need anything to hold them together.

I think these are really cute. They look awesome. Maybe the glue dots or something like that to mount the center invite. Why do you want the two cards to be held together? like do you want them attached? Anyways I think they look great!! Great job.

Those look amazing!!! As a fellow invite DIY-er, I’m impressed. It’s crazy the amount of work and time that goes into them.

I used the Scotch adhesive roller to adhere my various pieces of cardstock together, and even used it for ribbon and it worked awesome! No issues with separation, as long as you run a line along the majority of the edge area.

Good luck with the finishing touches!

Love the design – they look great!  I don’t think you need anything to hold the two cards together, but if you’re insistent, I would just do a belly band in a coordinating color pattern.  I did a belly band for my invites – just bought 12×12 patterned paper and cut it into 3/4″ wide strips.  Wrapped it around and secured it with a glue dot on the back.

@Summy00:  Oops…realized I totally misread your post…sorry. I thought you were asking about how to adhere the invite portion. Can I blame that on “bride brain”? πŸ™‚

I don’t think you need anything, but I second what milesbella: said about the bellyband if you really want that.

Adorable! Maybe a metal brad to hold the two pocket cards together?

Spray adhesive. I did DIY invites and it was my best friend. You just spray the back of the invite, and stick it to the pocketfold. It holds really well. As far as the 2 cards go, I personally don’t think you need anything to hold them together!
