What the PP said plus I embossed our invites so I need the heat gun and embossing powder.

I used a regular laser printer, recycled “brown bag” cardstock, a rolling blade cutter, and a ruler.

I would think you could get a packet of cardstock at the very least, other stuff would depend on what kind of look you want?  I think some possibilities would be paper punches or a corner rounder, maybe a fiskar or cricut cutter/scorer thing, embellishments (ie rhinestones, ribbons, maybe scrapbooking stickers), stamps and/or ink, twine or ribbon, envelopes but only if you know what kind of invite and what color…

Personally I haven’t done mine yet, but so far plan to use cardstock, twine, and some scrapbooking stickers 🙂

I may use my FSIL’s Cricket to make a shape for sealing the belly bands, not sure yet.
