    They look great! I love the sand dollar. It adds such a nice detail.

      Hey Rach-

      I have a few more ?'s for you.

      1. Did you design the Palm tree with the S initial? If you did could you email it to me jmb0902@gmail.com or PM me with it? That is our initial as well and I love it your pic!

      2. Did anyone tell you the sand dollars broke? Did you use a special envelope or padding? I want to use starfish but I'm worried they'll break.

      Thanks hun!

        Hi jmb-
        I have the S and palm tree logo on my computer at home, so I will email it to you at some point tomorrow.
        Every single person we've spoken to that received their invite said the sand dollar did not break...I was so relieved. We didn't use any special padding...the envelopes were actually really thin-they were the "free" ones from Vistaprint. You can actually see through them in the pics. I did my best to fill the hole in the back of the sand dollar with hot glue as I was glueing it on, so I'm not sure if that helped. Also, most of our families and friends live closeby...mostly within CT. Maybe the fact that they didn't go very far helped too. I did send one to England...but I forgot to ask her if it made it ok.
        We really wanted to use starfish, but thought they were more fragile. When I got the sand dollars we were throwing them onto our tiled kitchen floor just to see if they would break, and they didn't (except for one maybe, and we threw a LOT). The only way they broke is if we squeezed them...we tested it...haha! My FI was trying to prove me wrong because he said there was no way they would make it through the mail...it was so nice to be able to say TOLD YA SO!
        Let me know if you have any more questions...
