I really want to make our save the dates that say “we’re engaged” with a photo on the front and the open up and inside is our save the date magnet- kind of like this invitation (website below) but without the bottom part for the RSVP card….
3 questions- what do you bees think of this idea? Has anyone done it before and have any pictures? does anyone know how to make a pattern for the outside folding invites
Thanks so much!

Do a search for pocket fold invitations, they are really popular, so you will find lots!!

A full on pocketfold might be a little much for a save the date. I think there needs to be more than just a little magnet in the pocket, and I’m not sure what other info you have to add there. Also, then what are people going to expect for your actual invitation!?
There’s a few examples like this on magnetstreet.com that are like folded cards, and there’s slits in the back part that you can put the magnet in.
Quick link to an example. Looks like there’s a few options, but this is the only one I could see that the magnet doens’t end up over your faces on the back page.

SapphireSun– i know what you mean when you say What are they going to expect for the invites.. but I guess I forgot to say that they were going to be mini-sized. I’m going to use a wallet sized photo for the front and then a small business card sized magnet and have to stuck to the middle of the inside with a glue dot… maybe a small/cute envelope seal of some sort… so I won’t have to worry about any other writing/wording- maybe no one’s made one like this before?

I’ve never seen one like that before but what you could do is get a folded card size A1 or A2 and get your magnets from vistaprint and make them yourself. Take your picture with the “We’re Engaged” on the front of the card on cardstock and put the magnet on the inside of the fold with a couple of glue dots. Sounds like a great idea.
If you are interested in having them made, PM me. I sell invitations, etc on etsy but have not seen this done yet. I think they could be really cute.
