I did the belly band w/ my DIY invites….I was doing a satin ribbon but I switch to a shimmery scrapbooking-type paper.  I also put e small thing in the center of the belly band for decoration (sorry no pics – I’m at work!).

Anywas….I also had a problem with the belly band sliding around once I put the invite inside the envelope.  My envelope was a “pocket fold one” (see below).  I took a little bit of scrapbooking glue dots and put it on the back of the invite on the belly band and pressed it onto the envelope.  Everyone said the invite and belly band stayed in place throughout the mail and it was easy to pull the invite off of the envelope – and nothing was ruined!

I was going to suggest exactly what MrsJKH2be suggested. Glue dots are wonderful.

I used satin ribbon with glue dots as well — the glue dots provide enough give to let the ribbon come off, but still kept everything in place.
