Then cut the satin ribbons into equal lengths, so you can bound them¬† on the invitations. Print then the handmade paper layer on the bottom,¬† and the invitation layer on the top of the handmade paper. Allign the¬† three layers of paper together so the holes look perfectly lined up.
The next step is to push the ribbon through the holes from the upper-¬† to the underside of the papers.¬†Afterwards push it up again on the¬† other side of the paper and resemble it stylish at the top of the invitation.¬†Adjust the ribbon, so that it holds all the papers perfectly together.
