I have read a million times on this website about brides getting awesome deals on some DIY invitations from Michael’s. I’m not from the US nor do I live there but I have visited. I gather that Michaels is a craft supplies store but please explain these DIY kits for me. How do you go about getting it done from purchase to completion?
What aree in these kits? Fancy paper? This sounds like a route that I could take but I feel like I’m lacking info.

These aren’t my invitations but they are the same brand, same set up. This is Anna Griffin that comes from Target and I believe the BRIDES brand is sold at Michaels, you can find both on amazon or ebay. Mine had a velvety background that held the piece of paper with the text on it similar to this one I posted. In the set they have practice paper that gives the exact demensions and margins. I made mine in microsoft word and hit print! It was so much easier than I even expected and I ended up spending about $100 on 120 invites, and I didn’t even use a whole ink cartridge, and that included printing the envelopes. I highly reccomend doing this route! I’ll be happy to help if you have questions.

@tiff-tiff-tiff: I used them and they were fantastic. So easy. The kit comes with everything except postage! You download a template, customize it how you want it, and stick the invites in your printer. The best part is that they look like actual pro invites, not just a single sheet of paper. Mine had 3 layers and twine wrapped around them.

Thank you ladies… I’m sold! It seems like an awesome idea. I’m definitely going to experiment.
