                These invitations look amazing! I can't believe you did them yourself - I would have guessed it was a professional designer!

                  Milejilo,

                  I'm sorry for posting twice, but like I said before I absolutely love these invites! I will be working on mine within the next few weeks, so I just wanted to ask you a few questions. First, I know that you said it in your original post, but did you get the paper you used for the actual rolled up invites at Kraftoutlet.com or at Kate's? Second, what font did you use for the writing on the invitation (this really makes it look professional!)? And last, are there any tips that you can give me? Such as anything that you learned the hard way or anything to avoid? Any help would be very much appreciated...I feel like I have two full time jobs with both my regular job and this wedding planning, so any time saving info is incredibly helpful! Thanks!

                    Hi Stephanie... at first we were in search of pretty hand made paper that we were going to stain and burn... but at $1.20 a sheet at kate's paperie we decided against it. Searching through the store we found the kraft paper, which in turn had me searching online for matching labels and mailing tubes.... You should definitely buy it all in one place if you can.

                    The fonts my brother used are burgues script and celestia antigua.

                    As far as tips... I didn't really find it too difficult, just a little tedious. Make sure you roll the invite tight with a pencil so it fits in the bottle easily. You'll need someone to help you tie the raffia around the invites. FI says, make sure you give yourself extra room on the sides of the invite so when you burn them you don't burn off any wording. To burn the paper, first roll, then burn and have a damp rag ready to put it out ( shouldn't burn for more than 4 seconds ). oooh, I suggest not using a candle, FI did a couple that way and for some reason it left dark soot on the paper. He used one of those zippo gas lighters for the stove, he complained his fingers hurt, but I just kissed it and made it better, lol.... hope that helps, good luck, can't wait to see them....




                    I know what you mean, the wedding planning becomes a second job, but it goes by so quickly, enjoy it =)
