You did an amazing job!
You did an amazing job!
they are beautiful! i wish i was half crafty as you for my own wedding!
I second Ting Ting! I wish i was that crafty too!
Those turned out amazing! Great Job! How did you make the pocketfold?
VERY pretty! Have you done a trial run with sending one to yourself to see how well the bow will make it through the mail? Just throwing it out there,as the one we did had to be altered to just a knot of sheer ribbon so that it layed more flat, as the thickness of the tied bow tore through the envelope during the handling and delivery . Same thing happened to the added crystals on the response cards. I’d hate to see all your hard work be ruined!
Those are gorgeous! Everytime I see invitation suite posts I get excited to look because I’m still in the searching-for-inspiration phase and plan on DIYing my whole suite as well…how did you cut out the different pieces in that cool shape???I absolutely love it and I’m hoping to get a similar feel with mine.
Dang girl!!!! Those are gorgeous! Want to do mine, they have to go out by tomorrow or Friday!!! LOL!!!!
Um…wow! Those look really good. You deserve to be proud of this – its fantastic!! So, when are you opening your own invitation shop?…
Thank you for all of the sweet comments 🙂
I got my template from the template pool in Word. It lets you print two out at a time. I just modified colors, size, fonts, etc., as needed. If you have word, just open it up and go to new for new document and then there will be a list of templates. Click on the invitation one and you will see several examples for invitations. The backing shape is done with the Crcut. I used the wild card cartridge. When you are doing your backing, they will be the largest size of your invitation. Mine are 5 X 7. You will want to size down the wording part, so the backing will show. Make sure you check out what size envelopes you will be using and base your invitation size on that. You will want the envelopes to be just a little bit bigger than the invitation. I got my envelopes here: https://www.cardsandpockets.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=87 I also used the Cricut to make the envelope liners. I used the tie the knot cartridge for those. You will have to play around with the sizes and envelope shapes to get the one you want for your invitations. I got the instructions to make the pocketfold part from: http://www.premiervolleyball.org/Pictures/Wedding/The%20DIY%20Pocketfold%20Invitations.htm And I used a paper punch for the corners on the pocketfold.
Thanks for the link for the pocketfolds and the instructions.
Those are beautiful! Awesome job! I wish I were creative enough to come up with something like that lol I just bought the print it yourself invitations kits at Michael’s. Your guests are going to be so impressed!
Those are REALLY Awesome!! 🙂
