I am working on my invitations and have an additional 4 or 5 pieces of paper that I have to add to the invitation envelope. Mrs. Pineapplel showed a picture of a folder she made that held all of the reception and ceremony information cards: http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/07/10/the-invitations-2/
How do you think this was made?
What boggles my mind is that it looks like only 1 piece of cardstock, but a design on both sides.
I wondered if she just printed the orange pattern on the inner part of the card, but I don’t think she did because the amount of ink it would take to print 100 of these would be out of hand!
I already bought my invitation paper & it doesn’t have a pocket fold, so I think that this “folder” that Mrs. Pineapple made is the way to go.
I’m afraid that it is going to look SO unprofessional if I try to pull this off!
Ideas?? Thoughts?? Help?!?!

It could just be double sided wrapping paper. Or she could have printed a design on both sides.

I was thinking that it would have to be thicker than that to hold everything & be relatively sturdy…
Do you think she just bent the bottom and taped the 2 sides to make the pocket?

It’s probably doublesided cardstock and she folded up the back to make the pocket. Cardstock is pretty thick, you can find some up around 100lb in some cases. This paper isn’t coverstock, but you can see how the back is a different pattern. (Found at scrapbook.com)

Check out the comments section on that post – Mrs Pineapple mentions that she did print them herself, using an Epson RX500.

Hi! Yep, I did print them myself. I printed on both sides of heavy cardstock. You can also have them printed at a local print shop. I have used AlphaGraphics for these folders for other brides.
So, I printed on both side of the cardstock. Folded up about an inch along the bottom and adhered the sides to make the part that holds the inserts. Then I folded down the top to make the folder.
