    Yay!! I am proud to share my first DIY/Crafting project.



    I am a complete novice so even though they are not boarding passes or some of the beautiful creations that I have seen from our other members (who are much more talented than myself), I am totally proud of myself and have started off small and will work my way up. I think they are a cute little package and have all the needed info.

    I was considering a post card but decided that this would be the first impression of the wedding and most people would be booking trips well before receiving an invites so I put a little extra effort and $$ into the STD’s.

    I made 100 of them:
    Paper: $33.00
    Envelopes: $14.00
    Paper Fasteners: $3.00
    Raffia: $3.00 (but have tons extra)
    Printing and cutting: $49.00
    Return Address Labels: Free at Vista Print
    Clear Mailing labels: About $4.00 worth of a big pack
    Postage: $0.42
    Total for each with postage: $1.48
