Steps To Making the Hidden Message Wedding Invitations:

Step 1: Print Your Invitation Message in Light Blue

Your first step is to print your invitation message in light blue onto the cardboard paper. Keep in mind that you will the paper must not be too thick otherwise it will not be able to go through the printer! To save ink and paper, we recommend printing 2 or 4 invites on 1 sheet of paper – depending on how big you want the invitations to be.

Step 3: Make Your Cellophane Magnifier

Take a piece of red cellophane paper and cut it into your desired shape then add it to your cardboard magnifier or frame. Another adorable idea is to have “Look Closer” written on your magnifier handle or frame.  This way your guests will know what to use it for.
