Yay I finally finished them!

Well, when I say finished them, I mean I have enough of everything done to assemble one complete invite to show you what it looks like. And here it is!



I got the idea of a spinning invite off Design*Sponge, but I designed, printed, die-cut, leafed, and assembled these myself! I'm really happy with how they turned out. The two layers spin, so you can see through the little window all the info on location, time, website, etc. Here's a shot of the envelope...



The address label folds around the back, where I have a little copper leaf stamp, and the magic inside!



My mum helped me punch out all those little copper leaf confetti pieces...



The invite consists of the spinning wheel part, and then a menu with an RSVP card printed on the back.



Here's a shot of the other side of the menu card, the rsvp card! I'm actually hoping people RSVP online, but they were fun to make. I was going for a whole dark, whimsical fall feel. I hope I got there!

How Awesome!!!!!!   I love it!  So unique and well made!  What does your RSVP Postcard say on the front, though?

Those are fab!

May I ask what have you used in the centre so that they will spin freely? I''ve thought about making spinner things (not invites) in the past but worried about using a brad or spilt pin because of needing to cover the sharp points!

Yes, I have an epson 1400. Not a typical home printer, but when you're an artist it makes a lot of sense to have one around the house!

It's just a regular brad. After using a splitter to get it to flower open at the back, I then pounded the edges back in with a hammer, flattening it against the invite. It seemed to work pretty well and as long as you don't hammer the brad too tight it spins beautifully!
