        Those are *amazing*--- my God, they look like they would have taken forever to make and then to put together!

        But those are really going to leave an impression on people when they receive them! Imagine when they get a box in the mail and when they open it, it's a wedding invite! People are so used to getting regular envelopes--- they will be *floored* by the class this shows!!!

        Fabulous job!!!!

        Jessalyn, those are awesome, your guests are going to be so excited to be getting a package in the mail and then it turns out to be a wedding invite. What a creative idea. Great job!!!
        I agree about getting them out before rates go up for postage, I am going to do the same thing and get mine out this month.

          Jesalyn those are stunning. I can't believe you made more than 100 of them! Just thinking about it makes me head spin (and I actually like projects!)

                Wow, Jessalyn!!! You have inspired me, I LOOOOVE the way they look... and might have to copy your idea a bit!! I love the starfish when you open the box, what a neat touch. Did you have any inspiration - where did you get the idea for the setup? Anyways, amazing job!!
