Ok, I guess this would be the board to post this…I am diy’ng my invitiations and it’s been a process in the making…
I went out today to get some awesome stamps – 1 for the front of the envelope for the addresses (which will be all hand written – oh THAT will be a task! lol – and 1 that says “handmade by” that I will stamp on the back of the invite itself…I will def. show these off once everything’s done and over with…
I also went out looking for what I could do for the RSVP cards and how they will send them back…so I was at Michaels today and they had a TON “$1” items for sale…and I saw perfect little notecards that included 10 envelopes and 10 cards – and the cards all had some sort of “thank you” on the front but were blank inside…I started by picking out 10 packs – hey that’s 100 envelopes for 10 bucks, right?…
Well up at the front near the registers there was a christmas clearance rack…they had the same size envelopes and cards but they were christmas specific as the front of the cards all said “naughty” or they said “nice” – but there was only 8 cards and 8 envelopes per pack…HOWEVER they were only 20 cents per pack!!!! so i bought alll of them. I will be making my RSVP’s for less than $3.00!!!!!! I bought 14 packs total for 112 cards (won’t need nearly that many – but i bought them all anyways! lol
Obviously the front of the card with the words “naughty” and “nice” I will rip off and just use the back of the card – so it’s one piece – and I will use my printer to print all of them off. And the envelopes and rsvps fit PERFECTLY into my cardstock envelope/invite that I’ve already made…oh I can’t WAIT til these are done. I’m so excited!
But yeah – i can not believe what a deal I got today!!! I just had to share with people who’d understand! lol. my husband tried to be excited for me and said “good deal” (which is his phrase, lol) – but ya’ll know! 😀
So what deals have you found?
