I made my invitations by hand..I was looking for little ways to make the invitations personal.  My Fiance came across a TON of burlap sacks…so we cut them to size.  Stiffened them with some starch (2.99) I bought a ton of vintage design cadstock (in a booklet from hobby lobby) and cut that a little bit smaller than the burlap. Super glued  (use super glue gel) 3 pearls in the top left corner.  Printed our actual wedding invitation on polkadot velum.  Bradded the velum and floral cardstock to the burlap at the top and bottom.  Then tied twine in opposite corners.  Hardest thing was picking the font I liked….hands down…best invitation i’ve ever seen!  I loved them.  Start early and do it in shifts…never sit down and do something start to finish.
