    Jessalyn I am absolutely speechless. And trust me that rarely happens. I think I have stared at your invites for like a half hour now. They look fantastic!!! I cannot believe you made those yourself. Seriously I am going to put every girls great ideas here into a book and sell it for people planning DW's. We will all be rich!!!! These invites are so nice. I love the color and look to them. Putting them in a box makes it so nice and I love the starfish!!!!!

        Jessalyn, I can totally see why they consumed so much of your time! They are beautiful however, very personal and beach romantic. Can't wait to hear about guests' responses.

            So, I LOVE your invites. I want to do something similar. Do you think it was worth all the time to do it yourself vs. the money you saved? I don't know if I have the skills that you do. Are they wrapped in fabric or is that tissue?

                  I the middle of preparing the invites, I didn't think it was worth the time, energy and stress. But after I saw the end result in the box with the label, I really loved them and had a great feeling about them. I honestly could have saved a lot of money by just doing regular invites, which sounds good now as the budget is getting tighter.

                  I'm not sure if I would do it all over again.

                  The boxes are lined in fabric. It is actually 2 pieces of fabric with fusible batting in the sandwiched in the middle. Then the fabric was lifting off of the batting, so I had to hand stitch each of the sides to keep the layers together.


                  Thanks again to everyone for all the nice comments.....makes me feel good!
