How long did it take the wonderful DIY bee’s to put their invites together? I have bought everything needed for them and addressed 50% of the envelopes. However, for the life of me I cannot get my FH to pick out the wording of the invitations so we can’t print them out. Hopefully we can get them printed the first part of next week.
So my question is how long did it take you to actually put everything together? I have about 85 invites to send out and they are pocketfolds. I wanted them to go out the week after Christmas but worry I wont have the time to make that happen.

I think that depends on how elaborate your invitation suite is and the amount of time you can give every day or weekend to work on it.
When I build invitations, it takes me a weekend if they are 3-4 pieces and I am running them through my printer. When I use my gocco, it takes a few weekends because I have to allow drying time.
My suggestion is to pick one part or one project to work on each night after work and you should have no problem finishing in time for Christmas.

@meganrose: Thank you for the tip. I am going to try my best to work in phases. Today I will try to finish up the addressing and numbering the RSVP cards. I am using my Cricut for a few parts and I already did all of those cuts. I just have to actually build all of the pocket folds and cut the strip for the belly bands. Then of course glue the invite (needs to be printed) on the pocket fold and print the two other inserts.

I invited my bridesmaids over, cooked them dinner, made martinis, and we put them together, assembly-line style, in UNDER an hour! I had mine printed and cut at a Kinkos or something….and they were two layers with ribbon ties.
If you’re waiting on your Fiance to make a decision, i say just make an executive decision and move forward…less stress that way.

@ejs4y8 LOL I wish I could just make his mind up for him. I told him just yesterday that I was going to do it because he has had over 4 weeks to figure it out and needless to say he was far from happy. “I WILL FIGURE IT OUT” I am doubting it will be figured out today either. BOO I don’t have any of my maids in town so I am stuck doing it almost all alone. I could ask FH to help but his quaility wont match my standards LOL.
