    After countless hours and 5 glue sticks later... our Save the Date's are finished! I couldn't find any paper that I loved, so I decided to make my own envelope liners. They turned out quite lovely if I do say so myself ; ) I'll post pics this weekend.

        I was thinking of doing DIY envelope liners, can't wait to see how yours turned out, would you recommend it or was it harder than you thought?

            I would totally recommend it! They are pretty easy to do and they make a HUGE difference in the appearance of your invitations/STD's. The only hard part for me was that I made the paper (I glued orange lace tissue paper onto handmade fuchsia paper) and Kate's Paperie stopped carrying the fuchsia paper. Even though I was told by multiple Kate's employees (from different locations) that they would carry both types of paper all year round, so I had to go on a wild goose chase to find matching paper.


            I'll post pics tonight, this weekend just got away from me ; )

              I finally uploaded the pics to my computer... I'm so pleased on how they turned out. Most people don't even realize that they are DIY'ed ; )

              Here is my work station. I cut them out with an exacto knife.

              Address Detail: We bought an embosser to do our return addresses on the envelopes.
