Ribbon and brooches give plain invitations a bespoke look.
Take a piece of ribbon and make a loop at the central point. Glue in place. Flatten the loop so that it lines up with the ribbon on either side, push down the centre and glue in place to create a double loop. Attach a brooch at the centre point. Position over the invitation and RSVP card, then bend the lengths around each side of the cards. Glue at the back to hold the band of ribbon in position.
