Hi Bees! I’ve had a couple posts about my wedding invitations. First I asked for ideas on how to make them, then I put up a poll to decide which invitations should be the final version. Well, I finished them today and they are beautiful! Thanks for all your help!!!
(The ribbon on the outside is showing through the hearts cut out on the bottom. I got a hole puncher, shaped like a heart, at Michaels!)
I sprung for printed, lined envelopes. They were the most expensive part of this endeavor.
I used faux wax seals I bought off of etsy. They were TEN times easier to use than real wax seals, beautiful, and won’t disintegrate on their way through the U.S. Postal system! (Bought them here if you’re interested: http://www.etsy.com/shop/smithrj18?ref=seller_info)
Tada!!! Did you make your invitations?? Show me!!

@Tangled: Nope, I had black invites too! The only problem was that I made them all and then realized that I couldn’t hand address them because the ink woulnd’t show up or would smear. Labels for us!
They look great!
