These mason jar wedding invitations are not too masculine and not too girly. Trendy and cute. Will fit in a standard A2 envelope for mailing and easy to mass produce. And they can actually be used for just about any theme – not just a wedding or engagement party.

I am going to walk you through making both of these mason jar wedding invitations yourself. Once you create your own template, you can save it to your computer, and just switch your own words out when you need to make invitations for another event. Did I lose you with “create your own template?” Trust me. It is easy.
Open a new document in your Word program. In the upper left side of your toolbar there is a tab that says “mailings.” Click on it.
Then, in the far left side of the “Mailings” toolbar, there is a box that says ” create, labels.” Click on it.
This dialog box should pop up. On the right hand side of the dialog box there is a section entitled “Labels.” If you click on “Labels” another box will pop up giving you a listing of pre-made Avery label options.
Your page should then look like this:
Now you can design your mason jar wedding invitation. Use whatever fonts you like. Center the text in the box for this project. When you have finished adding all of your information, print a test run to see if your text will fit inside the mason jar embossing folder.
Trim your printed pages into even quarters.
Insert a cut invitation piece into your mason jar embossing folder. Make sure the manufacturer name is facing upwards. Embossing folders are clear- you can see how your paper will line up. Make sure it is even inside of the folder.
The mason jar imprint is now surrounding your text! Pretty, right? I love the elegant look of embossing.
Now take a 1″ strip of silver paper, line it up inside the embossing folder- just where the lid is, and roll it through your machine.
Add the silver lid, like before.
Adhere jar with silver lid to your printed mason jar wedding invitation, placing your adhesive behind the silver lid, where it will not show.
