Did you try one through the postal service yet? I’d be afraid that with the machines they run everything through (US), your guests will end up with an envelope of wood chips. They’ve ripped up enough stuff for me, through the years.

Wow they are beautiful! I wanted wooden invites but they would have cost a fortune. Great job, thanks for sharing!

They’re gorgeous! So clever! 

I’d also be worried about popping them through the post – could you get a couple of pieces of Card to pop them between to give them a fraction more protection?

We’ve made our own, but nothing as clever as these! 

These are ours:

I created the writing myself – it’s filled with our favourite Comic Book Characters πŸ™‚

This has to be one of the best DIY projects I’ve ever seen for a wedding. They came out great

Wow, those are amazing!!! I’m so jealous. My Fiance probably has access to some kind of laser cutter at school (he’s an engineering major), but I graduated last semester and I would want to be there to oversee the project hahaha πŸ™‚ Congrats, they came out so great!

seejanebee:  damn girl! that’s awesome! In my head I was picturing like a round piece of trunk with ‘save the date’ handwritten in sharpie and a magnet taped to the back! 

I’m impressed! That’s super super cute!

Wow they are great! I love magnetic save the dates because you have to keep them so long it’s just so easy. Just a thought.. Did you test them out on your fridge? We’ve had a couple of magnets that were too heavy for our fridge and kept sliding down and one even scratched the stainless steel on its way πŸ™ but I may just be unlucky Lol!

seejanebee:  Your save the dates have inspired me!! I thought of a way to do mine that doesn’t involve laser cutting, unfortunuately, but that does involve a wood magnet. I’m doing something along these lines: 

I bought the wood slices today, am going to make a custom stamp to use for the magnet, and will print the text on cardstock! I found all the papercrafting stuff at Hobby Lobby for super cheap πŸ˜€

Thanks for the inspiration πŸ˜‰
