Burlap + Twine Invitations

I love seeing different materials incorporated into invitations, whether for weddings, showers, or birthday parties.  So when I received an e-mail from a reader (Hi Brandi!) seeking inspiration for a Huck Finn/Tom Sawyer party, the first thing that popped into my head was burlap!  I wasn’t able to find any photos of invitations printed directly onto burlap, but here are a few images incorporating burlap and twine as lovely accent materials:

The wedding invitation above by D*lsh Design for photographer Brandon Kidd features a band of burlap tied around kraft and cotton paper invitation elements.

Christine mailed her own wedding invitations (above) in a dark green burlap envelope – such a great idea!

Love the use of twine in the above invitation suite by Bird and Banner


cotton and burlap invitations

I could totally see these cotton handkerchief invitations from XOWYO being mailed in a burlap inner envelope, or attached to burlap backing.

I love fabric pockets for invitations and ceremony programs – burlap could easily be substituted for cotton in these ceremony program pockets from Chewing the Cud for a more rustic feel.

Have any of you used burlap or twine in your invitations?  If so, I’d love to see photos!

  1. Stunning! I love the hankerchief invites. I’m trying this myself as we speak…it is a pain in the butt!! So seeing work like that is always VERY impressive!

  2. woah, lovely work but do people actually include registry info with the invite? I’m horrified!!!!!
