Keep in mind that your time and patience are money as well. Not every DIY project saves money.

I have seen homemade pocketfolds that were gorgeous but not everyone has the time or patience for that type of DIY project. If you do, then go for it! Your guests will appreciate the effort that went into them. Only you can make that decision as to whether it’s worth it or not.

Even though I made the rest of the invitation suite myself, I bought pre-made pocket-fold envelopes. I bought them from Cards & Pockets, and they were really affordable and saved me a ton of work. It was so worth it in the end because the rest of the invitations making process was a nightmare!

Hello dear! From my experience, it depends on how many you have to make. I did 140 and it was a monster project…I spent tons of time making them. Here’s the tutorial I used from Mrs. Deviled Egg. I’m working on my invite reveal and will send you the link when I post πŸ™‚
