We rented a very primitive campground for a week for our wedding. The invitations needed to convey a lot of info. And then there needed to be a map. "Sheesh, it's like I'm writing a book, how am I going to do this?!"... oh, hey, i could make the invitation a book! Thanks to reading a lot of great ideas on here, our wedding invitation was born...
First, a glamour shot:
Some covers are denim. Some are green cotton, some are pink. It really just depended what I was in the mood for. All have rainbow thread. love that stuff.
Each fabric book cover is lined with heavyweight paper, varying pastels. Page 1 has the quote.
Here's the invitation part. Little watercolor "illustrations" adorn each page. This is a picture of his cabin, a very special place to us and near the location of the wedding.
Making the map is really what set the entire tone for the invitation.
Next step is to order postage stamps (with illustrations from the invitation) and stuff these babies into envelopes for their long journeys.
While my girlfriends helped me assemble these, we also baked crayons for the kids' table, following the tutorial on craftster. Man did those turn out CUTE! We wanted to eat them.
Only 8 million more tasks to do and this baby is in the bag.
