I wraped mine with twine, like a present. To wrap it like the example, there’d be no way to prevent them from sliding around a bit. As long as your envelope and belly band/ribbon are nice and snug, it shouldn’t slide around like crazy, but it won’t be as perfect as that pic, though.

I plan on doing this with ribbon as well.  Can’t stand belly bands and we don’t need more layers in the envelope so we are wrapping a ribbon and adding a wax seal.  No bow just crossing them over.  I plan on pulling super duper tight and using a glue dot to seal it before adding the wax.  Should be enough to hold it together.  Just pull the ribbon really tight before you glue it together.  A two person job for sure.

@baletrina:  Yes, keeping the ribbon tight is key. Good call on the glue dot to secure, that way the seal can be more decorative, and not having to hold the ribbon tight. Wax seals are a challenge enough. Have you seen the wax that goes in your glue gun? It’s pretty cool.

@Kara001:  I’m sure they did a bit,but I think the cuteness of the twine weighed out any problems with the cards being off a bit. 😉 sometimes you just do the best you can. I don’t have a pic uploaded with the twine, but here’s a pic of our handmade invites!

@simplifiedbride:  That’s the kind we are using!  Too bad its almost $5 a stick.  Ugh.

 

@simplifiedbride:  I thought of twine but it doesn’t really fit the theme of our wedding and doing a present tie is rough with regular ribbon.  Cute invites!
