Just an idea, is you could mount a piece of paper on one side of the invitation with corner punches to hold the inserts in place... kind of like this... http://www.oliostyle.com/wedding/ini...initials_4.jpg

Except, using a corner punch will only cost you about $7 TOTAL as opposed to having to by photo corners. Stampin UP has the one I'm using. It's called a Simplicity Corner Slot, it's $10.95, but you can find them at craft stores for cheaper. So, just punch the corners and then slide the enclosures under and they will be held nicely in place.

Great idea! Both the corner punch and the photo corner idea are great! Very creative.

 

Ann, I've been thinking...(that could be dangerous! lol!) and if you were still thinking about rearranging the clip art on your invites, I thought the palm tree would look great where you have it now. And then maybe use the starfish in the upper left corner. . .so the designs are diagonal from each other. Not sure if it's possible, but the starfish design reversed to fit in that corner might look cool. Kind of framing the text. I'm not sure how much sense that made all written out...just an idea though!!

It makes a lot of sense - and I plan on rearranging a few times and posting the results for you guys to vote on! I like the pocket idea too - I may try that.

 

It may work for Christine's invite as well.

Your invites look fabulous Ann! I really like them and you've given me inspiration to do mine on my own like this. I'm going to try and get a sample from Papel.

 

I love the color of your ribbon Christine. I need to find some nice ribbon on clearance like that!! I'm always making home-made cards for Bdays and Thank you's. It's a great finishing touch!

 

keep up all the amazing projects girls!!!

Ann, that is insane, are you kidding me, you made thosehuh.gif?

 

I don't understand.

 

so, you just used word to arrange the clip art and the wording,

then went to kinkos or something and printed it on fancy paper?

 

that's incredible!

how did you make the loopy thing that goes around?

 

I'm very impressed!

i bought the paper at a local art store - but Paper Source had a lot of options as well. i tore it to get the rough edges, and used my printer at home. crazy - eh?

i did use word to arrange the clip art and everything.

the band that goes around is just more paper - i cut the strips, and glued them together. it's all very tedious - but i think i can pull it off!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
