- Wedding: February 2011
I’m a total geek for DIY, so I really want to do my own invitations. I’m pretty incapable graphic-design wise… so I”m hoping to make up for it with some cool crafting. I had sketched up a really pretty 5×7 pocketfold with 3 inserts, a ribbon bellyband, and fun embossed stamps I bought from Michaels.
Then I went home for memorial day and my brother’s fiance shows me the invites for their wedding (which is before ours). They are (you guessed it)… 5×7 pocketfolds with 3 inserts and a ribbon bellyband.
Argh. It isn’t like she “stole” the idea (bc she didn’t know what I was going to do, and also its not super uncommon), but I still don’t want to do the exact same thing they are doing.
But… since I suck with graphic design I really wanted to do some kind of cool crafty-like invite that wouldn’t rely on cool graphics.
Can anyone help with some different ideas? I feel like I’ve only really seen plain invites or pocketfold invites. Is there anything that is pocketfold-esc while being different?
