catskillsinjune :  Love them!

Yeah, I couldn’t bring myself to pay the pricetag on the store ones so I sucked it up and kept the 95% good. None of my guests noticed though! Most had no idea I DIYd them until I said. So I guess we’re the only ones that notice.

100 lb paper is definitely not thick enough but a lot of newer printers won’t print over 110 lb. the trick to get past this is to use an older printer that doesn’t fold the paper over and just feeds it through straight. 

I strongly recommend 130 lb or up (it does exist).

clairhuxtable :  I don’t think it would be a waste of time. I’d recommend a simpelr design if you’re doing that many because the more and more intricate the foil area, the more chances of messing up. If you don’t have any areas that are super thin and keep it so you can just cut blocks of foil, I think 200 is easily obtainable.
