Kraft Paper: $10.00
I bought these at Kateâ€s Paperie

Stamp and stamp pad: $ 12.00
I bought these at Michealâ€s

Total to make 80 MIB's: $210.17 (2.63 each) plus postage

We gave out most of our invites but we had at least 20 we needed to mail….Postage: $2.59 each

We ran out of MIB invites and we had to mail invites to family out of the country so we decided to use the same design but using a flat card.

All supplies bought at paper presentation in nyc, hereâ€s their website paperpresentation.com … each invite came out to $2.43 plus postage…

thank you so much kb22246 .... both invites were actually printed on laser printers. the tag on the bottle, i just wrote that free hand, the labels on the cylinders and envelopes all that was printed on a laser printer... but i'm sure an ink jet printer would work just as well. The paper for the flat invites is truly amazing, the picture doesn't do it justice... if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to pm me.

Those look professional...so fun too because it will remind people of when they use to make treasure maps as kids...you know...dipping paper in tea to stain and burning the edges...so fun!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
