      one tip I have, is that if you can't find bamboo type paper, which is the backing on that invite (I've searched), then go to your local wallpaper store, they should have bamboo wallpaper which is thin and is nonself adhesive... to get this look.

      Otherwise, I have no idea where to get this paper I also wanted to recreate an invite similar to this one but haven't been able to find this paper anywhere!

        Monika, try looking for "woven grass paper".

        This is the description of the invite the original designer gave me:

        "For this invitation as pictured the cost is $12.25 each. That price
        includes invitation printed on metallic card stock backed with a
        woven grass paper and a second metallic card stock backing. The
        invite is wrapped with an iridescent dot vellum wrap and finished
        with a real starfish and waxed thread. Also included in this price
        is an rsvp backed in metallic card stock with coordinating metallic
        envelope and a white box for mailing along with adhesive strip."

        I found a few places online, unfortnately I have a doctor's appt. I have to get to fast, but I will help you look when I return.

              Thanks everyone for your suggestions!!

              I came across these boxes here:
              MainStreetPackaging.com - White Swirl Jewelry Box #75 7 x 5 x 1 - 50/cs

              The only thing is they come in a case of 50 for $21.80. I personally need 20 so I was wondering if there was anyone who wanted to split a case of 50. They are 7"x5"x1". Please let me know if you are interested!!

                Amy - did you finish your invites? I LOVE the ones you are "recreating" and would love to do the same thing. I'm just curious how they came out, and if you have any tips for me :)
