@SouthernBee33:  how about a belly band?  you can use burlap, lace and twine or any combo of them.  they will suit the style of your invites.

@SouthernBee33:  i would probably go to a fabric store and buy the burlap or lace myself and diy.  i’m sure there are a few ways to keep it together if you want.  a strong double sided tape may even work for a lighter fabric.  if you are handy, you could stitch them.

the possibilities are endless really.  i would buy a few small samples and put them together to see what works best for your look before buying the whole batch.

i was also thinking that you could even use thick brown or beige paper as a belly band and then add the twine or raffia.  probably the easiest.

let me know what you find and come up with.

@SouthernBee33:  i think that will look really nice.  if you are using hot glue, make sure that you use a blotter under it (or scrap piece of cardboard) so that the hot glue doesn’t drip on your invites while it’s drying.

i love the tags.  good idea.

can’t wait to see the finished product.
