Southern Living is a popular lifestyle magazine that features home decor ideas, plans, recipes, and articles geared towards southern culture and trends. In 2008, as part of a yearly Idea House promotion, where Southern Living builds and decorates featured homes, they had a private preview open house sponsored by Guaranty Bank and Trust. Knowing that these were an elite selection of individuals, this invitation was based on the event’s exclusivity.
These dimensional pieces were created with a die-cut lock on the outside peeking in at the front of the special home. The folds expose a silk ribbon presentation, feathering through aged bronze grommets that attached an antique key when opened. The paper was sturdy soft linen, and the directions inserts were printed on off-white translucent vellum. The overall feel was that of substantial charm and classic southern elegance.
