Scrapbooking stores are fantastic - you'd be surprised how much cheaper certain art supplies are from those stores vs. specialty products (i.e. wedding invite kits, etc.)

If you run out of options, you could actually use burlap fabric and acheive the same look. You could stiffen up the fabric either by using a really heavy starch and an iron or by dipping it in a dilute solution of elmers glue and water.


Then you could attach the card with glue dots.

This is funny, this is my invite inspiration as well. It took me hours to find the paper. It is called Japanese Woven paper (also called Japanese Cane and Herringbone) and the only place I have found it you have to buy 5 sheets and they are $98 for the 5. Here is the website.


Japanese Cane - Basho/Herringbone Weave - 37 1/2 x 25 1/2 - 80gsm - 5 Sheets


I bought this and put together my mock invite this weekend and went back to the store to check the Encore one again and this is the exact paper. Some of the others you see (like on Kates) are different textured. This one is exact. I went to Kinko's and asked them to use their large cutter (free) and spent 2 hours cutting it to invite size.


The pocket on this invite, I cannot find, but envelopments has one very similar.



Also, if you liked this Encore invite, check these out for further inspiration (the 7th one down in the gallery)

Cute idea! I would check out Michael's and Joanne's in the Scrapbooking Dept. If not try a local scrapbooking store- if they don't have it they can probably order it for you.


My good friend used Japanese Crane Paper (similar if not the same) but it was pretty $$$.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
