So, I want to make the DIY Paper Envelope Doilies.
DIY Paper Doily Envelopes
Only thing is I can only find 10″ square doilies instead of the 9″. I found a great price on them too (100 of $15 +$9 shipping)). I am worried that it will not look or fold the right way or it won’t be the right size to place in an envlope for a 5×7 invitation.
Has anyone made them with a 10″ doily and can maybe give pointers on how to do them? Anyone attempt to make them and it just didn’t work?
(im in search for a small pack to try them out, but I can’t find them anywhere)

@FutureMrs.Hagopian: I attempted this and they were going to work perfectly, but then I changed my invite shape and the size didn’t work anymore. I actually have 95 9″ square paper doilies if you want to buy them! I’m planning on selling all of my leftover wedding stuff here on the bee, but it’s still scattered between here and my in-laws house!
I can take a pic of them if you want to see =D

@ariel: that would be great! I would love to see a picture, how much are you asking for them? (I am about 6 months out from sending my invites, so I have some time)

I bought my lace envelopes using the same exact doilies from etsy and they were gorgeous and cheap, $1.50!

i did this! i couldnt find 9″ doilies so bit the bullet and got 10″ on ebay for cheap. would they have been a smidge easier to fold and maybe looked a little better if they were 9″? probably. but it def wasnt worth the extra tress i put myself through to TRY to find 9″ ones, and i got a TON of complimenrs on the invites as is. here is my completed envelope with invite. one tip: when you stuff them in the envelope, put a piece of paper over the front and they’ll slide in much more easily.

Side note: I spoke with FMIL’s friend yesterday who asked “how did you find the lace thing that fit the envelope exactly?!” – and I used the 10″ for a 5×7 invite. Lesson: there are other things to stress over, don’t waste your energy on this one if you can’t find the 9″ 🙂
