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....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.

      I love that idea, okay I will have to try that too...Ann what program did you use for your invites?
      Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

        They look nice. What are you unsure about? Are you having them made for you? (I found the answer to that)

          No fancy program - just did everything in Word!

          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 those?

            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!
