[design update] I love handmade paper

We finalized Nhaman & Jeremey’s wedding invitation package a few weeks ago!! (check out the final booklet package below)

UPDATE: a customized version of this design using lavender

They both helped to find a replacement handmade paper from a store in Santa Monica called Hiromi Paper (they loved it as much as the previous discontinued paper -yeah!).  We also changed the embellishment to a dried Tapestry millet, which we ordered from Save-On-Crafts!  I added a 3rd layer of brown textured paper to the belly band for additional thickness & for contrast. It really helps their name band with custom monogram pop!  (we also changed the direction of the names on the band, shown below):

I also put together their announcement using the same design {paper, monogram, etc…} but we only used 2-layers of paper instead of a folded booklet.
