I would love to DIY our invites, but i havent decided on a look/style/wording or anything else yet. i saw that Joann Fabrics is having a 50% paper/paper supplies sale and i would like to save money on supplies if i can, so i am thinking of getting stuff now.
what kinds of materials did you all use for your DIY invites?

Paper cutter (guillotine style), scoring tool (for folding clean edges), double-sided adhesive squares (permanent), decorative punches/corner punches

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 🙂
