    We sent them out last week & we've already received our first yes!

    We ordered the palm leaf invitations & response cards from happiepaper (which is part of passionpaper.com). I like the invites but I'm not sure if I'd recommend the company. We had some issues with customer service &, although everything turned out OK, the experience sort of left a bad taste.

    Anyway, we ordered the blue-green jackets from cardsandpockets.com (which is a great website & they have terrific prices & customer service!). We also bought white cardstock from cardsandpockets for the travel inserts.

    I ordered the little silver sand dollars from Ebay. They were charms so I cut off the little loop at the top and threaded them with raffia that I already owned. Then I just used double-sided tape to secure the invite to the jacket & assembled everything.

      They look great! I bought the same exact colored pocketfolds from C&P and they look so nice in person. And I looove the sand dollar you added!

                    Those are so pretty! Does the jacket have that little bit of shimmer to it in person?
