    Here are our MIB invitations! They were soooo easy to make and a lot of fun!!! Over the years I have gathered sand from various beaches I've been to. We used the sand I had and bought the bottles, shells, charms, ribbon, at Hobby Lobby. We created/printed invite at home, then made copies on parchment paper at Kinkos. The bottles are glass and will be mailed in boxes to our guests. We also put a few drops of coconut scent in there just to be extra fun :) Office Max is where we ended up getting boxes and packaging. Don't forget to make one for yourself to keep! I absolutely LOVE them!!! Enjoy :)

          Those are so cute! I love the idea of adding a smell! Did you use coconut oil, extract, or the candle making perfume stuff?
