I can’t see any photos, but the double-sided tape worked great for mine. It pops open after you’ve opened it 50 times like I have with my mock up, but it works great. I too tried the velcro and know what you mean about it being too bulky. I think my double-sided tape was some of the heavy-duty scrapbooking stuff. I got it at Michaels, my haven of late.

i don’t think it looks to bad, you could try putting them under a heavy book to flatten them down a bit.

i’m sure once you start sealing them in envelopes it will be fine.

Ok, yeah, that’s what mine looked like too. The double-sided tape totally works, especially when you’re going ribbon to ribbon. That’s what I’m doing. Those are very pretty, by the way

the Tombo PERMANENT adhesive should work on your ribbon.  Also, if you cut the ribbon on a bias and extend it past the closure tag, it will give your guests a ‘tab’ to pull on to open it.  It may seem obvious to you how they open, but most people will totally get it if there is a tab to pull.

 

PS – they look great!  Congrats!

Your invitations are beautiful and ironically are very similar to mine!!  I had the same problem!  I bought a sticker maker thingy and made my monogram squares sticky.  Then I attached the ribbon using another piece of paper on the back.  So the ribbon and monogram slide off but stay together.

I would definitely try a small piece of double stick tape. I am sure that it should work. By the way your invitations are lovely.
