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

 

Sand Blast Entertainment

 

After we printed the invites on parchment paper, we burned the edges and the name tags.

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.
