I received a great response when I posted on another thread, so I wanted to follow up with you all and let you know how my invitations turned out!

 

If you recall, this was the inspiration for the invites (and also another way to make them). FYI - She was charging just over $8 per invite!

Those look awesome - now you're going to have to post HOW you made them! What kind of paper did you use, and where did you get it? What about the ribbon - what kind of fabric is that? Detials!

 

Good work! You've got to be proud of the outcome. I would be!

I had to purchase the following to make them -

 

(1) Paper - I used Discount Wedding Invitations, Vellum Paper, Vellum Envelopes, Card Stock Source - Paperandmore.com and paid right around $16 per pack, which has 100 sheets. I was able to get 2 invitations per sheet of the orange, 2 invitations per sheet of the brown, and 3 invitations on the white. Plus inserts, of course.

 

(2) Paper Crimper - You can find these at craft stores. It gives the wavy/beachy feel to the cards. I found mine on ebay for right around $20.

 

(3) Ribbon - I found this ribbon on ebay (Elton Bridal). It was $3.29 for 10 yards. It's called Natural Sinamay Ribbon, and you can choose your width.

 

(4) Starfish - Package of 500 for $11.95 from Party supplies, crafts, party decorations, toys: Oriental Trading

 

(5) Printing costs (I printed myself)

 

(6) Glue! :) I used glue sticks for the paper and tacky craft glue to secure the starfish.

 

(7) Envelopes - I found greeting card size envelopes from Staples. You just need to find the size that will fit a 1/2 sheet of paper. I can't remember for sure, but I think they were around $12 for 100 envelopes.

 

(8 Stamps, of course!

 

(9) and I already had a paper cutter (found at all craft stores)

 

Let me know if anyone needs further instruction or has questions!!! I have all the sizes that I used, but you could sure change it up to fit what you like!
