I originally posted this project in the paper crafts section, but someone suggested I post them here too...  I looked around for wedding invitations, but couldn't find anything that really *felt* right.  So, being the crafty woman that I am, I decided to make them!  It ended up being a very gratifying project, not to mention inexpensive.  The bottom panel of the invite is a removable RSVP card, complete with a SASE!




The coolest part about the invites?  My mother-in-law liked them so much that she had hers framed and gave it to my husband and me as a wedding gift!    Wink

I just wanted to tell you how great this idea is!!!!  For my wedding and my sister's there were a lot of DIY pieces, but your invitations really are spectacular. Too Cool.  I wanted to make my own, but since I was determined to use Mickey Mouse I had to order them (licensing restrictions.)  Congrats on a great idea.

To secure the RSVP card, I cut a horizontal slit in the last piece of cardstock.  The slit is just a little bit longer than the length of the RSVP card.  Then I fed the RSVP card through the slit.  So, half of the RSVP card is on the front side of the cardstock, and half of it is on the back side.  (Does this make sense?!)

Yes, it makes sense!  So for the envelope, is the flap through the same slit?

Hi  I am a newbie. I love this site. I LOVE YOUR INVITES. I am not too creative or crafty. How did you make these? I am planning for my second marriage in May 28,2005. Small simple outdoor wedding. I was wanting to make my own invites. Yours are gorgeous. Best wishes in everything you do.
