Let's Do This!


Step 1:

  1. Design your save the date and print on card stock. We used a 4” x 6” design, with the text on the left side leaving room for a marbleized strip on the right side, approximately 2.5" wide. You can download the template to use for placement.


Step 2:

  1. Add painter's tape along the back of your envelopes, leaving the flaps exposed.


Step 3:

  1. Spray shaving cream into your disposable tin and gently spread it to fill most of the tray. Add drops of food coloring to the shaving cream and then swirl it to create a marbled pattern using your popsicle stick. Try not to over-mix or the colors will blend completely.


Step 4:

  1. Dip the flap of your envelope as well as a piece of paper flat into the shaving cream mix and then scrape off the excess with a popsicle stick. Once dry, remove the painter's tape from the envelopes. Repeat with all of envelopes.


Step 5:

  1. Cut the marbled paper into strips and then hot glue them to your save the dates as an accent.



  1. Make a small date reminder magnet and add to your save the date using adhesive magnetic strip. You can also line your envelopes with a coordinating marble pattern if desired.
