I’m getting ready to put together my DIY invites to be sent out. I am planning on just stacking all the elements together and then tying them with some twine. Any tips for bundling the items together so they don’t slide all around? I thought about getting pocketfolds or envelopes…but everywhere looks super pricey!

You could make a pretty simple pocket fold out of cardstock if you have time that would not be too spendy. Or if you want to stick with just twine I would recomend tieing it like a preasent so the cards are less likely to slide out as the preson is taking them out of the envelope.
I don’t know what your budget is, but I found papersource.com super reasonable.

I’m using this website for my invitations – I’ve already ordered samples and I’ve been really happy with their paper quality and thickness. They have a pocket that is really simple and doesn’t have a “folder closure” that is 37 cents each. That’s definitely way more than twine, but I’m not sure what your budget is, and I think for the quality this place is the cheapest i’ve found

Pocketfolds are pricey no matter where you go. The best ones are at Cards and Pockets.
However, you could go for something more creative and cheaper.
I don’t know what your wedding style is but you could:
wrap them in fabric or a doiley and tie a string around them
put an eyelet in the top of each enclosure and string them together with ribbon or something more fitting and creative for your wedding….like maybe twine if it is a rustic or garden wedding, ribbon for more elegance, eco friendly ribbon for a green wedding, torn fabric, hanky, cord with tassle, lace anyyythhinnggg fitting to your wedding.
You could use a flower bracket to pin them all together.
You could wrap them with a normal paper belly band
put them in a small 2 piece box so when they open it the invites and everything don’t have to be bundled together. You could hand deliver them to save on postage….because this way would cause a lot of postage.
you could make a single pocket from folding a piece of fabric over and sewing the two edges and then placing all the enclosures in the fabric pocket….of course you could do this with paper too.
You could make a small pocket that goes over just the bottom half of the invites as well…that would be cute like this
You could also tie a ribbon on one side of the invite and use that to tuck the enclosures in.

we’re using ribbon and a pocket. Ribbon to tie the main invitation in place and a pocket to hold the RSVP and Directions cards. Do you have a pic of your invites we could see? That might help! Here’s a mock-up what we ended up with:

When I did mine, I tied the twine around the biggest piece (the actual invitation) as tight as possible, and then just slipped the other pieces in (the RSVP card with it’s envelope). 🙂
