Mine took over a month, but in small sittings. I did a pocket fold invitation, with a green backing on the inside cover, then ivory paper with information that I designed and printed myself. It all needed to be cut and assembled. Then I had three inserts (reply, reception, map, and tickets to get into the private park in an envelope, which I embossed with a logo). Then I did a belly band, with a little square of paper with another square of paper with our monogram on top.
Essentially it was getting the prototype together that took the time.
Once I’d figured it out, I cut out all the pieces myself.
Then I invited people over to assemble them, and that only took about 3 hours.
Hahaha… and now I’m starting to think that saying I would make my sister-in-law’s invites as well wasn’t such a good idea. A labour of love that you kind of forget just how much work it was…
