Just wanted to share – here are my DIY invites I sent out earlier in the week. They took me forever to assemble but I’m happy with the outcome.

Beautiful! That’s the type of invite I’m hoping to make. How did you design the invite and where did you get the envelopes?

@SoonToBeMrsV – Those look amazing! Did you just mount your invitation and inserts to each of the silver pieces or are they one entire piece? Hopefully that made sense 🙂 Also, I purchased the same type of pocketfold and was thinking of doing something similar. You mentioned that it was time consuming. What about the assembling of these took alot of time? I’m kind of concerned because I hoped having just 4 pieces and being able to cut them to the same size for 3 of the 4 items would reduce the length of time to complete them. Thanks!

@SandyGee – here’s the short story –
1. the pocketfolds, mats, and envelopes I got from cardsandpockets.com
2. I just used powerpoint to “design the text” and ended up having them printed and cut at Kinkos (PM me if you want more details on this part)
3. I used a tape gun to mount the actual invites on the left (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000XAHHXU/ref=oss_product and http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000QC8I7E/ref=oss_product)
4. I then used a silver paint marker and ruler to draw the line at the top of the inserts
5. To make the name tags – I cut cardstock and printed each of my guests names on white card stock and then cut blue and silver cardstock (also from cardsandpockets) and used the tape gun.
6. Using glue dots, I wrapped the ribbon and name tags around the invites and the stuff them in envelopes.
If you want any more details, I’m happy to share!
