      Thanks everybody for the nice compliments!  To answer the questions you have asked:


      - How long did it take and how many did I make?  It took a LONG time, but my fiance was a huge help.  We made 125 and it probably took about 12 hours, but we did a few things at a time over a couple days so it didn't seem so bad. 


      - How much was shipping?  It was expensive...$2.27 per invitation.  But, we handed out as many as we could to friends and family so we saved quite a bit that way.


      - Did I use plastic or glass bottles?  We used glass, they just seemed nicer, although plastic would be cheaper to mail, I think!


      - How did I ship them without breaking? The boxes they come with are very sturdy and the bottles fit tightly inside. 


      - Where did I get the burnt paper?  I didn't....I bought parchment paper and burned all the edges myself (it took forever!) and set them out for a few days so the burn smell could go away before we rolled them and put them in the bottles.

        They look awesome! I like the burnt look around the edges of the paper.
