My DIY Message in a bottle invites are finally done!

Recommended Posts

So I tried posting this before but I must not have read the posting instructions correctly because I ended up adding an album....what?!?!  LOL

 

I'm so excited about how they turned out, however I really should have thought through the real starfish on the bottle...they're cute, but I think a lot of them ended up getting smashed in the mail...UGH!!

 

Here's some detail on what I used and where I bought the materials, hopefully this will help anyone looking for ideas:

 

Label:  Aqua cardstock from Michael's and white mailing labels from Office Max; I bought the starfish from a vendor on E-bay, they were super cheap, I think I ended up getting 250 for 8 bucks!

Bottle:  SandArtSupplies.com - they had the best prices, I think I ended up only paying $1.13 per bottle (plus shipping, of course), however that did include the box for mailing.

Sand and Sea Shells:  I originally bought a bag of shells from Michael's but I went to the Dollar Tree and found that they had the same shells in a slightly smaller bag AND the sand!  I only used about 4 or 5 bags of shells and 1 1/2 containers of sand for 125 invites.

Ribbon:  Michael's - 3 spools for $1, you can't go wrong!

LOVE them!!! The more I see these the more I'm thinking of doing these for our wedding... How long did it take you? How many did you have to make? And how bad was the shipping?? (Sorry for the rapid fire, I just like to get as much info as possible.) They came out amazing!

They look amazing and I would love to do something like this - but its just not practical as I would have to post most of them and cant afford to courier them.

 

Your guests will love them xx

I love them!  Part of me wishes I would have done these because I love how they came out!  I'm curious how many you had to do and how long it took as well!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
