Okay, you guys are so crafty! What are you using to make these DIY invitations? How do you cut the paper straight? Are you just using a regular ruler? I can't imagine even making anything decent with normal office supplies!! Are there special invitation making tools or scrapbooking stuff or something? You guys are so good!

I went to Hobby Lobby ( the only craft store in my small town ) and bought some aqua paper for the background - I found clip art on the internet ( a starfish ) and just used my HP software - The easiest thing is just to start playing around with it and find out what you like best! I also ordered some baby starfish off ebay to embellish - Good Luck!

I bought a paper cutter from Office Max and a separate blade that perforates. I plan on having Kinko's do the cutting though since I have ~125 invitations! Since I'm making boarding pass invites with ticket sleeves I also bought an exact knife to do the "fine" cutting manually.

Yes - have to use a paper cutter. And, having used the old "guillotine" style one at the office, I'm SO making the investment in a rotary cutter.

 

But it is a function of playing around with it until you get a look or idea that you like.

 

If you need any pointers, feel free to PM me with questions or samples. Happy to help in any way I can.

 

And we all love to see PICS!!!
