I'm mailing my invites this week! So excited...take a look!

Recommended Posts

Yep, I think that answers it. I'll find out when I start making my invitations in the summer - I might have to harass you later about it though.

Also, I'll disregard your "messy" room if you disregard my amazing ability to not understand simple instructions and to make things more difficult than they actually are!!

 

:) Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!

Wow there is so much detail in those Jess, Did you actually spend more on them versus what you would have paid if you purchased them from a vendor? You did a very good job.

No problem. I'm glad you got it. I'll be around in the summer to help...no problem.

They actually averaged about $5.15 per invite not including extra stuff I bought. The vendor I was looking at with similar invites charged about $12 per invite, so I guess I saved money?? But, if I would've just got regular invites, I think I would have saved a bundle.

I really love them Jess! And pink! My favorite color! So dainty! I realize this must be a labor of love! But this is what makes weddings so fun! I wished I could do ours too!

Ok Jess, I'm going to start my invites soon. I hope you don't mind if I pretty much completely steal your idea, I'm not that creative lol. I also don't know what mulberry paper is, so I'm off to the craft stores to look at some paper and maybe to some fabric stores for inspiration... questions definately to follow!!

 

I'll try to leave you alone as much as possible - I've already done some research on mulberry paper (apparently don't cut - moisten and rip!) - lol, but just an FYI, my questions get annoying after a while so I thought I'd give you some time to prepare for them!!!

 

Wish me luck! :)

YAY!!! I know what mulberry paper is!!!!

 

Jess, I'm ready for measurements. What size of mulberry paper did you buy? Did you double side the invite, or one sheet of paper/invite? Some of the paper I looked at was incredibly faded on the backside, which might look weird, so I'd have to double side it I guess?

 

Thanks for your help!!! smile03.gif

Sorry Courtney, I haven't been on the forum much in the last 3 or 4 days, so I didn't see your post. Yes, moisten and rip the the mulberry paper. I used a carpenters square (2 of them) to get even rips. The size of the paper was 22x30 i belive...here is the site Cranberry Try to find your color on this site, because the paper isn't a funny color on the back (and you won't have to double side it). I had the same problem with some of the pineapple paper that I bought (the light pink paper that was the backing for my inserts). I'm afraid if you double up the paper that it will cost you too much and then you'd have to worry about sticking them together someway. Anyway, let me know if I can help you further....you can always pm me!
