Check out ladybuglabels on etsy. They make personalized stickers. You could have one made in your colors with your monogram to keep the pocketfold closed.

I haven’t ordered from them personally…but I do have them saved in my favorites for later use. I’m thinking of using them for my Out of Town bags.

As for sprucing up the invites themselves, I would find a simple scroll or motif to add to the bottom of the invite. Then use it on each of the inserts to carry the theme throughout. Search on istockphoto.com for ideas. (I just searched "scroll" and a lot of options came up).

You are off to a great start!

To close mine I did a monogram on cardstock and glued it only to one side of the centre of the invitation.  On your example of the closed, I would have applied glue on the right side of the monogram and stuck it to the right side of the invitation. 

The pointed flap of the pocketfold then just tucks under the left side of the monogram and the invitation appears sealed but can be opened without tearing the invitation apart.

It looks really professional.  Hope that makes sense!

I’d say order a custom embosser of your monogram, put that on cardstock (cut it out into circles), and use a glue dot to close it. You could also get a cool edge cutter and do another piece of cardstock behind the monogram (and echo that on your envelope)

I closed mine with a faux wax seal(it was actually hot glue) and ribbon.  I just wrapped a ribbon around it, used double-side tape, formed the bow, glued the seal on top, & ta-da!

Also, Mrs. Emerald has this great tutorial & Miss Shortcake also has a great example too!

If you’re wanting to do a more monogrammed look.  Try Etsy!  There are plenty of artists that would not mind helping you on your big day!

Good Luck!
