Whether you’re looking to add airs and graces to your wedding stationery suite or more of a handcrafted shabby chic feel, our circle gift tags and ribbon will tickle you and your wedding guests pink. Here are two easy ways to add simple embellishments that add to your love story.
For this DIY, you will need thick ribbon, an envelopment and a circle gift tag. Style tip: Your circle gift tag selection will depend on where it’s being used. Here it is closing up your wedding stationery suite. In other places, you may choose a simple monogram for the gift tag.

After you’ve enclosed all the wedding invite essentials within the envelopment, cut a long piece of ribbon.
Wrap the ribbon around the envelopment and place the circle gift tag over the ribbon and the envelopment to seal it. Ta da!
DIY #2: Gift Tags, Ribbon & Favor Boxes
For this DIY, you can choose thick or thin ribbon or both. The world is your oyster! You’ll also need favor boxes and gift tag stickers.
Get the Look:
1. After you have enclosed your delightful favor within the box, cut a piece of ribbon to wrap around the box. The stylish possiblities here are endless: you can double wrap, use two different ribbon colors and different sizes as well.
2. You can choose to tie the ribbon in an elegant bow, or add a gift tag—a circle or square will both do nicely—to seal the deal. Most importantly, remember that good things come in small packages.
As you can tell, ribbons are on the top of our DIY mind. Such a small detail makes such a striking difference. Today, we’re adding ribbons to wedding programs, and (bonus points) including a sparkler—it’s the best way, after all, to show sparks flying.
DIY: The Sparkler Send Off
For this DIY, you will need thin ribbon, a folded program (you can also use a flat program), a mini enclosure card, a hole puncher and an X-acto knife. Quick tip: personalize our mini cards. Make them fun, quirky or classic—whatever speaks to you!
Get the Look:
1. Lay the program open (or flat for a flat program). Measure the center and make two slits with the X-acto knife. Each slit should be about 1/4 inch long and should be perpendicular to the crease. 2. Thread the ribbon through the slits and pull it from the inside out.
3. Punch a hole through the corner of the mini card and thread the ribbon through.
4. Tie a knot with the mini card looped through the ribbon.
5. Now tie the knot (pun intended) with the sparkler in place.
6. Snip away excess ribbon with a clean angled cut.
There you have it! A simple and chic way to kick up your aisle style. For another day-of DIY idea, check out last week’s post on how to serve up your menu.
