    I am attempting to make 150 DIY invites. I fell in love with these designs.

    Imagine the two toned shades of blue with a quote wrapping around in the belly band.

    A floral print (thanks to KellyMN) with this exact shade of green velum

    somewhat similar fonts

    They will be pocket folds, which I am making as well. (insert sh** hitting fan then face smiley)

    To be continued... I will post the final result soon, I hope! Wish me luck!

      Your inspiration pictures are so cool. I can't wait to see how it all comes together. I'm so happy I did my invites myself. It made them so special to me. It's fun to get crafty sometimes

        Amy I could totally picture your invites especially with that font and the chocolate brown and green colors. I think its going to look great but I don't envy you. LOl. It looks hard! But I know you can do it!

          Complicated yet fabulous! I think I wrapped my head around that design- I think they will be gorgeous and very unique. Keep us updated Amy. I know you can do it!

              Wow, thanks Ladies! I just finished the pocket folds last night, now its time to cut the backing for the inserts, ugh!

                Your invites are supe cute!! Do you mind sharing your invite template?? Also, how much did you spend on your invites. I am in the process of making mine and I dont really want to spend a lot.
