    Wow, it seems like this was the weekend for DIY projects! Ann & I must have been on the same wavelength or something...lol

    Anyway, here they are at long last. I seriously need to get these out in the mail this week, so I'm hoping FI will like them when I show him tonight. I'm a little undecided about the ribbon on the front, but everything else I'm pretty set on. Nonetheless, please leave honest feedback and comments as I've only completed one and am still able to make changes! I have all the paper cut out and ready to go, so if this passes FI's inspection and you all think it looks ok it will be very simple to assemble and get in the mail...

    Thanks to Christa for the inspiration and templates- you're a lifesaver Christa!

    The pictures don't show the colors very well, so just in case you can't tell, it is all metallic paper- onyx metallic pocketfold invitation from Click the image to open in full size.

          sarah - i really like them. to be honest i can see the ribbon being red/maroon. i think id prefer the ivory even if you had the other. make sure you take one with you for your photographer to take pics :)

            wow - those came out GREAT! i love them - not sure i'd change anything! and i love the look of the brads - it just adds a nice finished touch. i might actually fine tune mine based on some of the details you have in your invites!

            as for the ribbon - i think it looks great. the only thing i'd try is maybe folding the edge of the ribbon so it looks more "finished" but not sure you really need to do that, or if it would look any better.

            awesome job!

                    they look great. I like all the brads and the sparkly look to the paper. and the ribbon in front is great. we have a band going around ours and there is a little circular thing with our monogram on it to cover the place where the two ends meet? could you do something like that if you are still unsure about the brads.
