    Very cute! I voted for the scallopped edge and ribbon.

    Is there any way to better fold the paper? It looks a little uneven. I ran into the same issue with the thick cardstock.

    very cute! I definitely love the ribbon and scallop.  Please post the final product! I’d love to see them :)   They look even to me- but it’s hard to tell from the picture. If you’re having trouble maybe score them first?

    I agree with the PP’s – ribbon and scalloped!

    I voted scalloped. Only add the ribbon if you can make it stay where you want, not flying in the wind or moving all over the paper. I’ve got a lot of DIY invitations in the mail over the years and the ribbon makes it look tacky & homemade because they didn’t stay where they were supposed to :) Good luck!

    I think just scalloped looks a little unfinished.  Ribbon and scalloped looks great. I put my straighteners on a very low setting and ran it across my ribbon on my invitations so there wouldnt be any creases.
