    I've been MIA on the forum lately....been trying to get these darn invitations done! I think I bit off more than I could chew with this DIY project, as I must have spent at least 100 hours on them. Anyway, I'm pleased with how they turned out, so I wanted to share them with you.

    My room block is being released in late March, so that's why I'm mailing my invites so early.

    Thanks for taking a look! I'm so excited they are done!!

              Wow, Jessalyn, those are seriously AMAZING!!! They are so beautiful...I am in awe. Where did the pocket fold come from? Don't even tell me you hand crafted those! Wow....

                The layer behind the vellum is a handmade paper....almost like a fabric. It has wavy horizontal liness raised off the surface. It has a lot of texture...here is the link to the paper..

                The pocket fold actually came from large sheets of handmade mulberry paper. I could cut (make that tear) 4 per sheet and then I folded each one to make the pockets and used rubber cement to tack down the edges of the pocket.

                Thanks for all the compliments!! I just had to share them after all of the time that they took. ...plus I thought you all wouldn't mind a little inspiration....especially those of you who are planning to make your own invites.

                  Those turned out very cute. I am sure your guests will love them, I love the starfish idea.
