I was able to make a great looking invitation for the Thursday cocktail party of our destination wedding, in Microsoft Word. The problem is, its an 8.5 by 11 print- and I don’t know that it will look great if shrunk.
Has anyone sent out a flyer-type invite? How can you make it cute? How did you deliver/fold it, etc.? I want it to look nice- and not like a flyer.

If you haven’t already printed, consider reducing the size a bit to have a more interesting shape. Printing out on colored cardstock and/or fancy paper would reduce the resemblance to a flyer. With a square shape, you could fold it in half diagonally to make a triangle and send it that way – it would be a fun little package.

I did a flier type invite for our Rehearsal Dinner on fancy cardstock (it had a design on it). I think it came out great!

Try rounding the corners with a corner punch (from Michael’s or another craft store). That’s a quick trick that makes anything look a little fancier. You can trim off a quarter to a half inch from each side, and then stick it to a fun colored cardstock to get the layered look. And put it in a colored envelope with a cute sticker on the outside – people love getting fun mail!
