@srearley: Thank you πŸ™‚ DIYing is very time consuming, but it is so worth it.

@dodgercpkl: Thank you πŸ™‚ The Cricut has more than paid for itself, and I know that I will keep using it, so it was a very good investment. If you put the Cricut on your wish list, make sure it is the Cricut Expression; you will get much more use from the big one, instead of the little one. I wouldn’t have been able to make the favor boxes that I made for the sugar and the vanilla on the little one. I still have one more dress to finish up for the girls, but thank you for the compliment on them.

I ditto noritake22 on getting the Cricut Expression.  You have so much more space to work with, and you don’t have to worry about cutting your sheets of paper in half prior to cutting your design.

Mine paid for about half of itself with the little business card envelopes alone (even though they were a pain).  I had ordered some from one of the paper companies, and they were $45 for 75 (I would have had to double that order after we started figuring out our guest list).  I returned them.  

I made 150 of them for $5 (pad of scrapbook paper, Black Friday sale at Michael’s).

The pads of paper that buttontoes is commenting about are on sale for $9.99 at Joanns quite frequently and they will special order for you at the sale price, if you need more than what is on the shelf. Not on sale, I think they are $24.99. I wish I would have known about the Black Friday sale at Michaels. It would have been great to get some more paper, especially at that price.

@noritake22: Your list of DIY is amazing! And they all look so wonderful.

I haven’t started any DIY yet. I feel the need to get on it, but also that it’s a bit too early for a lot of it.
