        I am so happy that you all approve! With all the wonderful DIY projects on this forum, I think I was most worried about your opinions!

        The invitations just look fabulous! I would be so impressed to receive an invitation like that in the mail! Can you tell me where you found those boxes?
        I actually got these boxes from someone FI's dad knows. He is in the clothing distribution business, so I was able to send him my measurements and he mailed me 100. Honestly though, they look (and feel) just like the jewelry boxes so many of the girls on this forum use. If the dimensions work for you (they didnt for me) you should just get those.

        Great idea with the starfish! Can you tell me where I can get them?
        I ordered my starfish from an ebay seller. Just do a search for "pencil starfish" (the ones I used) and you should be all set. I would recommend the seller I used because he had free shipping but I just checked and he is no longer registered.

        No, it just felt like it. Actually, what happened was, I decided on the design, colors, etc way back in October, but everyone told me it was too soon so I didnt really make it a priority. Instead, every couple of weeks I would buy a different part of the invitations (the boxes, the ribbons, starfish, etc)... well, before I knew it, it was the end of January and I had 2 weeks to get those damn things out to my guests... stress...

                    Your invitations are beautiful and very creative. I would have never came up with anything like that. And I'm sure your guests will love receiving them because I know I would.
