    Heyy everyone!!! So I spent 5 hours last night and 2 hours tonight making and finishing my DIY thank you cards for our "Almost Married" Reception that is next week back home in Connecticut. This is our form of our AHR before the wedding, as we will not be able to fly home after the wedding, we actually have to do another AHR here in Utah for all our Utah friends and family that can not make it!!

    Hope you guys like them!!!
    Let me know if you have any questions. They are pretty simple to make if you have all the tools, or know some else who does. Just a process of steps! But I love them and I think everyone who gets one in the mail will be pretty happy about them as well!!!

    The small white inserts are where you right the message and then they slide right into the envelopes!!!

            btw I would definitely love to know how you made them. I'm not very crafty so I'm not sure I could come up with something like this.

              I got together with my "stampin up" girl and basically we designed it together. But you can find all the tools you need at any craft store! You need circles punches and I was able to use her big shot (which is a very large punching tool) to make the mini envelopes. I used adhesive runner to adhere everything to one another. For the "thank you" I used a stamp and then punched it out and the blue scallop and pink circle are also scrapbooking punches.I used a paper cutter to cut the papers to the precise size I needed and glued everything together. You can do anything you put your mind too..its funny when you put things on paper... you can make them happen!! Let me know if you need any help!! I love to help!
