1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Wedding invitation scrolls (red/black/silver & blossom theme) on: September 24, 2012 08:00:06 PM
Hi, just wanted to know- what margin did you use for the invitation. You did a really great job and I'm thinking about doing this but just needed to know how much of the paper didn't have graphic on it so I know how much to leave so as to roll the dowel up in it!
Thanks


Sweets-the more stuff of yours I see the more I love you Smiley

I'm going to throw this idea at my brother for his wedding. I have a feeling a good amount of my time is going to be used for his wedding. Between my mom and I, the entire thing will probably by DIY. Small weddings + two very crafty gals=DIY. I have to ask though, did you do an assembly line type thing to put them together? I'm thinking my mom could cut the stuff out, I could design and we could both put them together. We have *ahem* problems "crafting" together. We fight. You should have seen us when we painted our bathroom  Roll Eyes, but thats another story...

*blush*  Your post made me smile!  I assembled all by my lonesome, so it wasn't too much of an assembly line.  I sort of did things until I'd get bored with them and then switched to others.  I designed, cut and assembled one entirely before I started more.  I wanted to make sure it would all work out.

Then, basically I did it like this...
Envelopes - Cut out, fold, glue (it sounds so simple, but I think I hated this piece the most...boring!)
Invitations - Many parts!
     Cut the dowels, paint them, hammer in those evil little beads with evil little nails
     Design the invitations on the PC, print them, apply glue & adhere/roll them on dowels & clothespin to dry
     Roll, roll, roll & ribbon for final packaging Smiley
Info packets - Design on PC, print, cut into stacks of 4 (four pages to mine including cover), assemble with brads
Package for mailing - shove it all in your envelope Cheesy, seal/sticker (and postage, of course)

I think you could easily make an assembly line out of any one of the parts or you could assembly line the entire project.
