I wanted to include a pre-rsvp response card with my STDs so that I can (hopefully!) get an idea of how many guests would like to come. So, pocketfold STDs were the way to go for me :)


But, being the creative type, I wanted something unique and my own design. I used 12X12 scrapbooking paper, ribbon, some great scrapbooking tools and my time & patience to create these.


I bought the pocketfold supplies at 25-50% off from Michaels and a local scrapbooking store. Also, being a graphic designer, I have contacts in the printing industry who were only more than happy to print the actual STDs and RSVP cards for me... for free!!


I saved alot of money doing these myself. My STDs only cost me roughly $.75 each to create. That includes the supplies, envelopes, glue, and taxes. It does not include the cost for stamps or some of the large scrapbooking tools that I already had or use for other crafting.

This is the Pocketfold, all folded up. I used my silhouhette sd paper cutter to cut the starfish shape out of scrapbooking paper and vecro dots as a clasp. I also used a fiskars corner cutter to make the 'rounded' edges on the flap. The tiffany blue ribbon I got at Michaels.

STD card up close. I did say I would follow with a formal invitation, but, we'll see. In hindsight I don't really see the point in sending an invite if most people will book the trip before I even send them out!

Inside of Pre-RSVP. I asked for their response, how many people are coming with them (bringing the kids?), their email address, a chance to ask for stuff to be mailed to them (instead of email), and a comment box.

Back of Pre-RSVP. I left a space so that I can write the guest's name on the back so I know who is RSVPing.



Thanks for checking out my STDs! Below are some links for those who are interested in my tools and supplies:


This is where I buy my 12X12 cardstock:

Scrapbooking Ideas and Supplies


This is my sillhouette cutting machine. Its similar to a Cricut, but will cut any clipart or shape I have on my computer. Its the ultimate scrapbooking toy!



This is my corner punch: Fiskars - Twist and Flip - 2-in-1 Corner Rounder Punch and my paper cutter Google Image Result for http://www.shoptilyoucrop.com/catalog/Fiskar12inPersonalTrimmer.jpg


For adhesives I used glue tape rollers: MIS Inc- Glue Tape Roller and my sticker maker: Xyron | 5? Creative Station?
