DIY Invitation - non BP/Passport
Posted 05 August 2009 - 11:58 AM
Just wondering if anyone could help me out with my DIY invitation project. I love these invitations (http://www.tangodesi....Shell_blue.jpg), but can NOT afford them. So I thought I'd put my "crafty" side to work. I'm already finding myself at a stand still though because I can't seem to find the right materials! Any suggestions as to where to I buy or order the materials?

You buy the basic paper and then there is a macine your run it thru that makes it crinkle like that.
The top part looks like velum and you can just run that thru the printer.
Most craft store will have the decals you can attached and the raffia string that they made the tie with.
Most Fabric Stores
Wal-Mart & Target sometimes have that kind of stuff in their flower and fabric area.
Stampin' Up will have all those products but will cost a little more.
Good luck, they are neat invites.

And yes, the top sheet is vellum but I've read that you can only print on it using a lazer printer (which I don't have).
Thanks for the suggestions!

Also I would bet Kinkos or some printing store would print the vellum for you pretty reasonably. I haven't tried printing on it.
My friends are all huge stampers and scrapebookers so I learn from them.
This is stamping up website and you can search in the tools section for all the gadgets.

You know, I was in Minneapolis this past weekend and was in Archivers but was so overwhelmed and hadn't decided on an invitation style before today. Shoot!
