Once I had all the pieces, I went home and started designing. I made several...different fonts, different sizes, different spacing, different starfish, etc. Once I had the invite perfect, I used the same theme for my side-pocket cards. The starfish became our "logo". I printed everything with a laser printer on 8x11 cardstock. I was able to get 2 invites per pages and more for the smaller cards. Now the tricky part is cutting everything to size (with an exacto knife and ruled cutting board). The invites have to be cut 5.25x5.25, the dark brown matte 5.5x5.5. Each individual side-pocket card has to be cut to size and then the three have to be trimmed together to get a perfect fit (they are all the same width, but the height increase 1 in. for the middle card and 2 in. for the bottom card...to get the accordian effect). The logo square on the front has to be individually cut and matted, as does the square for the guests' names. The ribbon has to be cut, wrapped, and secured. So it is a lot of work, but there definitely is a sense of pride and ownership as well.
We ended up postponing the assembly line today...because some of us were at a Cinco de Mayo themed bachelorette party last night....it was a little too much fun, and I'm still feeling the effects of all the partying..Don't think my head and hands would have been up for all the tediousness today.
