I’m SUPER excited to be sharing the fifth design of my popular “DIY Instagram Save the Dates“. In the beginning they were called Instagram Save the Dates because you had to order the adorable mini-stickers through your IG account… but the times have changed and now you can upload any photo that you’d like (from desktop or mobile) making these simply DIY Save the Date Invitations with Calendar Stickers. I’ve printed the exact same files onto 3 very different colors of paper to show you just how versatile and unique these invitations can look, even when using the same stickers. I definitely love the other 4 designs, but this one is by far my favorite! …what do you think?

Order Your Stickers

Visit Social Print Studio, upload and crop a pretty picture of you and your fiancé. The sticker books allow you to add 126 different pictures, so in order to get a book full of just one picture – use the plus sign until it reaches 126. Then order!

Cut Your Mini Stickers

Once you receive your photo sticker books in the mail, cut as many as you need down into strips of 2. You’ll need one strip for each invitation.

Adhere The Stickers + Banners

Using Glue Dots, add the stickers to the vellum banner and then on the backside of the vellum — only where the stickers are — add more Glue Dots and adhere to the invitation card. All adhesive will show through vellum, so you can hide the adhesive behind the stickers!

Add Washi Tape

Cut a strip of metallic washi tape (or any type that you fancy) and add a strip to the very top of the invitation. Wrap or cut off the extra from the ends.

Mark Your Date

Simply circle, underline, square or heart your month and date… I’m using Metallic Sharpies on all of these invitations because the color really pops!
