So I ordered my invites from etsy and the seller totally messed up my order and shipped me 250 invitations, rsvp, and envelopes! Well the only problem with that was that she only changed the actual front of the invitation to FI’s and I’s information leaving the rest with all the sample info. So we were stuck with 250 mess up of the invites and the rsvp’s, and they had been sitting in the box in the spare room, well last night I finally figured out what I could do with them. I couldn’t bring myself to throw them out since they were all in our wedding colors, and the front of the invite had our info on them correctly, plus the side of the rsvp with the design was fine because it didn’t have any info on it just the design. I decided to make them into paper balls to hang from the ceiling of the venue as decoration. Let me know what you think! Now there will be a lot of these in varying sizes, and there will be others made out of other paper, in the different shades of purple and green!
I only have pics of one of the ones I made from the front of the messed up invites.

These look so cool! I how you made the design go all the way around the paper ball. Feels good to turn lemons into lemonade.

That is such a great idea. I also had an invitation mess up. I almost threw them away, I will have to relook at them with a more creative eye.
