I like them! Is there a way to tac down the yellow ribbons so they are completely straight all the way around the exterior of the invite?

Nice job! I am not a big fan of orange and green but I think these work together, so that is saying a lot.

Here are my suggestions:

– Ditch the yellow ribbon. You’re going to make yourself crazy with those 3 ribbons, trying to get them straight and closed and everything. Doing it on one invitation is no big deal – doing it on a bunch is a PITA.

– Maybe swap the back layer of the monogram (currently orange) to the yellow, if you want to bring that yellow in. I think it looks fine though with the bolder orange.

– I really like the lace punch edge… and that may be another piece that makes you crazy. How many invitations do you have to do? I think you could certainly have this look great with a straight edge if making those punched edges get to be too much. But if you have enough patience to do them – they do add a nice touch.

– The white monogram doesn’t look cut straight. That is going to be very noticeable and lower the “quality” look of your invites. If you don’t own a paper trimmer, I’d suggest purchasing one – watch for a 50% off coupon! That paper trimmer will make a huge difference.

– I can’t tell anything about this from the photos, but be sure you are using a good glue/tape that will not fall apart in the mail or when people open it. That’s another “quality” point that can undo all your hard work.
