Can you order the materials you need and make a sample of one of the invitations for yourself to see how long it’ll take?

 

I’ve been working on my DIY invitations for quite a while and they’re not as elaborate as yours.  I started earlier on by printing my invitations and designing around them, but I keep finding ways to make them better and I plan to put them all together in the next few weeks, so I can mail them out in the weeks after New Year’s.

 

Since you only need to make 30-40, you should be okay.  I have to make 75.  But I’d still allow for some extra time and try putting together a sample for yourself.  You may be surprised that you need some other element you’re missing.

I’d give myself at least 5 months to procure all the supplies (that very well may be one of the more time consuming pieces) and assemble them.

@miss-stacie-2013:  Just throwing this out there, you can take a piece of cardstock or cardboard and do a mock-up using that. 

 

Before I got all my materials, I tried mapping things out in their actual size/dimensions and that helped a lot with ordering and when it was time time to put them all together.

 

Good luck!
