First and foremost, thanks to all the ladies who have posted their STDs. They all gave me inspiration to make my own, although it was a long and tedious job, it was well worth it.

 

Materials:

 

Paper

Super White 80lb. cardstock - paperandmore.com

Mint Green metallic cardstock - paperandmore.com

Bronze metallic #10 policy envelopes - paperandmore.com

Full sheet sticker label - Staples

 

Tools

Fiskars rotary trimmer w/ rotary blade and peforating blade - Michaels

Fiskars 'round the bend corner punch - Michaels

Nail clippers

Martha Stewart Bone Folder - Michaels

Scissors

Ruler

Roll-on permanent glue - Staples

 

Misc

Raffia ribbon - Michaels

Gimp (free, unlike Adobe photoshop)

Wedding clip art

MS Powerpoint and Word

Aylee's boarding pass template and pocketfold template #2

FI laser printer from work, haha

 

Font

Scriptina

Worstveld Sling Extra

Sanford Book

Vrinda

Arial

 

How I did it:

I downloaded some wedding clip art and changed their colors, size, created our monogram, etc using Gimp (it's just like Adobe Photoshop, easy to use and FREE). I put the boarding pass together using powerpoint, it's easier than word to shift images around IMO and had FI print them at his works' color laser printer.

 

The pocketfolds were put together using word. I only had one image to move around so it was best I kept with Aylee's word template. FI also printed these at his works' color laser printer.

 

The address labels were created using Gimp, the .jpg image was then transferred to powerpoint. There, I added all the addresses and names. I made 5 address labels per sheet and each was printed on a full sheet sticker label at FI job, then cut.

 

For the cutting, I mostly used the rotary trimmer. For the boarding pass corners I used the Fiskars 'round the bend corner punch but aligned the lines on the boarding pass to match with the cut on the corner punch. For the other cut along the perforation on the boarding pass I used nail clippers, an idea I got from Erin (ebredhawk, thanks!).

 

For the folding of the pocketfolds I also used the nail clippers. I used the filing part of it to score the paper along a ruler. The metallic paper was too thick for the bone folder, oddly enough. I used the bone folder for the address labels to define the front and back of the labels. Each label was carefully placed on the envelopes without too much creasing or else it would rub the laser image off.

 

FI stuffed the pocketfolds and helped me wrap each one in raffia ribbon and placed them into an envelope. I had to fire FI a couple times during this whole process but he proved to be a good helper :)

 

I diverted from the popular palm trees and beach theme, hope you guys like the design. I'll have to come back and attach the documents, here are the pics!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
