OMG. We are beyond excited to share today’s project with you!!! Almost two years ago we shared our original DIY Instagram Save-the-Date Invitations and they have been such an outrageous success that we decided to revamp them – so here they are, the DIY Instagram Save-the-Dates #2! Of course the designs are FREE to download below… happy crafting!

First you will need to make your stickers! Which means that you need to Instagram a picture of you and your honey, possibly holding something cute like the heart below, your date, or maybe even one of your engagement photos! Then create an account with the amazing Printstagram and order the sticker books below, only $10 for 252 stickers!!! It can take between two and three weeks to get your stickers in the mail.

Yeah!!!! Aren’t the stickers just super cute!!! You can use these for all kinds of different wedding fun. Cut the little stickers into strips of two, I think two is better than one because your friends might have multiple calendars…

Do you have the templates for the year 2016???

    Hi Kayli!! You are my very first request... so when I have time I will gladly create a 2016 template for you!

Is there any way to get this template sent to me in a customizable form?? I LOVE it, but want to add our names to it. Thank you so much!!!

    Hi Sunny! Sorry, but at this time we don't provide free customizable templates. You can either copy our design to a T, using your own design software... or print your names on a separate, larger piece of cardstock - and then place the free template on top... hope this helps!

This is such a cute DIY save the date! I was wondering if you had a template for 2015? I would be so grateful!

Hi! These are so cute and I would love to start making them but want to use the same font throughout, including on my envelopes. What font did you use on this template? I can't quite place it! Thanks

    Hi Mike! It's called 'Mensch' and it's from LostType.com http://www.losttype.com/font/?name=mensch It comes with a few different faces ~ it's definitely one of my favorites!

Hi! I love these save the dates and want to start making them but want to use the same font throughout (including when I print my envelopes, because I am picky like that), would you mind sharing what font you used? I can't quite place it and I have been searching for what seems like hours! Thanks

Hello, I would LOVE a 2016 and 2017 template as we still aren't sure on a year but DEFINITELY want to use the stickers! Such a fabulous idea!

    Hi Monique! We already have the 2016 template up… and we are most likely going to wait a bit to release 2017. Thanks!

Amazing idea! Just wondering, if I were to go to Michael's craft store what kind of card stock do I purchase? They don't advertise their card stock as cover weight and text weight. Also what paper setting did you use for your printer for each type of card stock?

    Jen | Something Turquoise
    March 4, 2014

    Great question Miranda! So I don't buy my paper from Michael's because for invitations, I'm not a fan of the texture of scrapbooking cardstock. When I refer to 'text weight' it means the thickness of paper that you would use to regularly print things from your computer. 'Cover Weight' means cardstock - like scrapbooking cardstock. When using the thinner paper where you can it cuts down on the overall weight of the invitation and price you will pay for stamps. But realistically speaking, any paper will do! ;)
