    I just want to say thank you to all the girls on this website. You ladies really inspire me. I have seen the MIB invites and thought how great they looked and decided I wanted them for my bridal shower. With the girls helpful hints and great ideas this is what I did...

    I purchased the supplies from Sand Art Supplies

    After that we put an umbrella and 3 small shells in each bottle

    Then we rolled them, using a pencil, thanks to the bride that gave me that idea because it worked great

    Next we tied Rafia around the middle of the invite with a string long enough to come out of the bottle and tie to the name tag

      PS: The supplies for 40 invites came to $2.00 per invite. I will be hand delivering most of them and mailing about 7 of them. From what previous brides on this website said, it should cost less than $3.00 to send them out each.

                    That is super cute! I love the actual burnt edges of the paper. I'm sure people will think that you bought the paper like that!

                      We split it up over a few days. The burning took about an hour with 2 people doing it. The sand, shells, and umbrella's took about 30 minutes with 1 person. The rolling and tyong the name tags took an hour with 2 people. We did it over 3 days, so it didn't seem that long.
