            I just noticed that you are a future Iowa bride also!! Congrats! I ordered all of the paper from Close to My Heart. I have a friend who sells it from Des Moines.
            Here are more pictures that can help explain the process invites pictures by jrprice24 - Photobucket
            Here is another website that provides instructions http://www.splitcoas....00&ppuser=2081
            Instead of scoring my edges I actually cut my 12"x12" sheet in half and then cut it again so that I had 4- 6"x6" squares. Than I cut 1 square diagonally and these pieces will be the crosses that will make the pocket. Decorate the triangles with whatever paper you'd like. I used brown cardstock for the entire invite but you could also use different colors for each triangle if you wanted.
            When gluing, make sure you glue on the correct side of each triangle. Then add colorful paper in whatever color you want to make the triangles different or you could keep them the same if you'd like. I added the ribbon and decorated the squares according to how I wanted them.
            I don't remember the actual cost but I did have to go back to Hobby Lobby 3 different times b/c I went through the glide tape like it was candy. I was able to buy 1 package of brown cardstock and then I had 2 packages of the colored to assure that I would have enough b/c there were only a few sheets in each color pack.
            Hope this helps! If you have more questions, let me know.
            Happy Planning!
