You can use brown paper grocery bags. Cut the side so it opens, reverse it so the writing is on the inside and cut it and wrap like you would use wrapping paper. This is sturdy material that is suitable for mailing.

They also sell rolls of kraft paper (like grocery bags) at office supply stores, and maybe even the post office.  I bought a huge roll of it and use it as wrapping paper for everything!

Maybe use more of an artists paper, like charcoal or pastel paper, because it’s much thicker than traditional gift wrap. I think you should just do a mock up and send it to yourself so you can see what condition it arrives in. Sorry I don’t have any alternative ideas, though!

I think black and white is very classy and such, but I also love the addition of Kraft.  Especially if you use black labels with white ink.  It could still look really, really good!

Cheap black wrapping will probably be to thin, but the nicer kind probably won’t be. If you can find it at Hallmark, that stuff is amazing.

 

However, you can probably find black paper at a craft store that will work as well, not sure how big your invite is, but most can be wrapped in a scrapbooking sized sheet, if not regular 8.5 by 11″
