So I decided to go the wildly popular (and also wildly cute) way of tying my invitation suite together with baker’s twine. The problem is that I dont know how much to order 🙁
I will have 200ish invitations going out and each one is 5×7 at the largest. How many yards or spools have you bees ordered for your invitations?

Are you tying them like this? 5″+5″ plus extra for tying =15″ x 200=3000″ or 84 yds
or this? 5″+5″+7″+7″+extra for tying=30″ x 200= 6000 ” or168 yds

I don’t have exact amounts or anything, but I bought a 240 yd spool, and did it like this for 95 invitations (these are also 5 x 7):
I think I only used 1/3 of my spool (which is okay with me cause I’m sure I’ll use it for other projects eventually!).
So for 200 invitations, 240 yds should still be more than enough.

Thanks a lot bees. Im thinking about getting two spools (each is 240 yds), one in yellow and one in grey. I should have plenty left to do little touches on my decor also with the twine. I was thinking about implementing it with the escort cards, so this amount should be perfect.
