I've finally finished all the invations, and they've been sent out, We sent the STD:s in the autum.
This is what we (me and h2b) made
for the STD:s we got magnetic paper on ebay, and printed out the wedding information on the magnetic paper on our home printer. I think they was ok. The graphic was a little bit pixilated, cause we couldn't find a cherry branch in tiff format online.
then we made a square card from cardstock bought from Ebay, and stamped with a dandelion stamp in teal. I Love teal
We then cut little slits in the card and inserted the Std magnet. So that it would look nice when people opened it.
And this is the finished result
The invitations was a much larger overtaking.
We first bought all paper, blue, ivory and blue on Ebay.
I had really set my mind on having a pocketfold as I really like them, but wasn't able to find any paper big enought in the UK that made sure that you could make one according to the tutorials you can find on the net. So I bought A4 paper on ebay, and the cut that in half on lengthwise. I then cut all the pockets out from other paper, and scored and folded and double taped them on untill my eyes bled :-). Then my H2B attached all the blue ribbon, and the last part for the pocket fold was to print our guest names on the ivory card stock, attach it to the brown 5*5 square and put that in front.
For the inside.
In the end I got a real nice pocket fold, and then we downloaded a free graphic on a educational site, that has botanical prints. I uploaded it into Artweaver (downloaded free as well), and changed the colour to a tealy/turquise blue
We wrote all our text, and made the information card, rsvp card, and map and printed it on our home printer. We then cut them all down to the correct size. And hey presto they where finished. It took quite a long time. But since I like fippling about with stuff that didn't matter.
Now I have finished all the wedding favours for the girls. (they all get sterling silver pendants with a gemstone in that I've made). But I have no idea what to do for the boys. I want it to be budget friendly, as we make almost everything for the wedding ourselves, and not take a huge amount of time as you know, we do have a limited amount of time and budget. Any suggestions??
