So Jess, give us an update! How did people react to those invitations? I'm dieing to know since I'd LOOOOVE to get that in the mail. You did an awesome job! I hope you don't mind, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to steal your idea! lol. What did you use as a backing for them?

Courtney~

Everybody LOVED them. I got a ton of compliments on them. So, all the hard work was definitely worth it. Thanks for asking.

 

I'm not sure what you mean by the "backing" do you mean the cloth padding/backing or the pink mulberry paper? If you're asking about the mulberry paper here is the link...Cranberry

 

The white wavy paper is here.. Fabric Horizon - Wavy Line

 

The cloth part was 2 pieces of cloth with fusible batting in the middle.

 

I think I covered all of the possible backings. Let me know if I didn't answer your question.

 

Please "steal" the idea if you want too! I'd be happy to share measurements, etc....just ask. :)

Ha! Thought about it for a brief minute, but can't think seriously about that now....too many DIY projects to work on.....plus there are so many fantastic handmade wedding invitation makers out there. But, who knows what the future holds. I'm sure this forum will be huge by the time I even consider the possibility....so maybe I could become a vendor on the board...hmm...bride to vendor.

Glad you like them...thanks for the compliment!

Hmm, Jess - I was actually wondering what you have "inside" to keep it from being so flimsy, but it still folds very much. Ugh, crappy wording. ... what did you put under the batting?

hmmm...still not clear on the question, but let me try to answer it anyway...

 

okay, first there is the box, then inside the box there is the padding, which is two pieces of fabric sandwiching fusible batting. I ironed the batting onto the wrong sides of the fabric to make make a sandwich. Then I folded them and put them under something heavy like a dictionary to crease the folds so that the "padding" would stay in place when the box was opened and not instantly open up as it would without the crease.

 

Then for the actual invitation. It is just a piece of handmade mulberry paper toren to size and the bottom folded up. Then I tacked the wavy paper in place which gave the invitation a little more stability. And then the inserts also added stability to the sides of the invitation.

 

Did I answer your question? If not, let me know and I'll try again. :)

Ok, so this part that is like the folder part of it - where you insert all of the invites - that's just made of the cranberry paper and batting, nothing else? It just looks like it has some kind of strong backing (like a book).

*so confused* lol. Sorry to drag you into my confusion!

No problem. We're going make sure you get it. :) The light pink and white flowery part under the actual invitation is 2 pieces of fabric with batting in between. You can see it in the picture...

The folder part is just the mulberry paper....it is a little flimsy but not too bad. Please disregard my messing workspace in the background. :)

Does that help. Question answered? Let me know if you're still not clear. :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
