    I am not feeling too hot and frankly I just got sick of sitting on the couch so I decided to sit at my desk and whipped these up today.

    It's hard to get a good picture because I used Vellum.
    For those interested I printed the wording on vellum and cut it down ( got 2 per page). I bought the scrapbook type paper from Michaels and since it was not a heavy paper I double backed taped it onto heavy, white card stock. I than positioned the vellum on top of the two sheets of paper and used 2 paperclips to hold it in place and I poked the hole through the vellum and paper to make way for the brad. I than put the brad through and opened that bad boy up. Ta da!

    As far as what the invite is for I am having my MOH's and personal attendant over to my house 2 days before the wedding as my way of thanking them for all they have done. I didn't want to call it a spa party since, really , we will be doing our own manicures and such. I will be giving each of them a professional hand massage! I am making up app's and lots of drinks.
    I am giving them each their own manicure/pedicure set that comes with a foot bath. Here is the way I wrapped them as well as the stuff inside:

    It's hard to tell but I found antique photo gift tags and I made the flower that is on top out of some black crystal type things.

                    Awwh thanks! Still feeling pretty crappy--that is why I am one here instead of at school infecting people. It takes my mind of it.


                    Glad you all like them, I hope the girls do!
