    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!!!

                  WOW!!! Those are wonderful! I can't believe you made those yourself. I can see why they have taken so much time

                    Jessalyn,

                    Those are amazing!!!! I love the starfish. It is just so unique and different from any invitation I have ever seen. Your guests are going to be so excited!
