Frame your invitations and requests with a playful lacy pattern. Just type your big-day details into a file with our clip art. One letter-size sheet makes two invites or four response cards. And here's a great tip: Use magnetic paper for the save-the-dates.

Save-the-Date Card and Magnet How-To

1. Using a desktop-publishing program such as Microsoft Word, download the PDF and place it as an image in your document.

Create a text box and layer it over the lace image; then, type in the text for your invitation and apply the font of your choice. Print on magnet sheets. Cut at crop marks using a metal straightedge and a craft knife (don't cut all the way to the paper's edge; this will leave the crop marks intact for each subsequent cut). Each sheet will yield four save-the-date cards.

2. Print the save-the-date holder on 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper. Cut at crop marks using a metal straightedge and a craft knife (don't cut all the way to the paper's edges; this will leave the crop marks intact for each subsequent cut).

3. Lay save-the-date magnet on top of the holder, and position the card so the designs align. With a pencil, lightly draw 1/4-inch-long marks around each corner. Remove the magnet, and position a metal straightedge diagonally across each corner, connecting the ends of the marks. Using a craft knife, cut along the diagonal to make a small slit. Repeat on the three remaining corners. Gently erase pencil marks. Tuck the corners of the save-the-date card into the slits.
