    After borrowing many of your ideas on this forum, I thought I could make my own invites.  I attempted and got too frustrated.  I created a monogram which my friend worked off of for the invites.   She was very patient with me and did a fabulous job!

     

    Supplies:

    Almond cardstock from Micahels - on sale $0.29 each

    Brown #10 envelopes from Staples - $3.99 each

    Gold pen from Staples - on sale for $2.00

    Perforator from Michaels - $2.99

    The following I borrowed from friends or people at work:

    White cardstock

    Corner round

    double sided take

    blades and exacto knives

    metal rulers

        You both did a great job cause your monogram looks great and the invites came out really nice.

          Myself and 5 friends made 90 invites in less than 3 hours.  One person cut all of the tickets.  At first two pple were cutting but they weren't cutting exactly the same and the size of ticket one was slightly off of ticket two.

          Person 1- cut out tickets with a blade on thick backing board.  don't repeat the cut in the same area for too long on the board b/c it will cause you to be off.

          Person 2- scored all cardstock for the jacket

          Person 3 - taped the card stock

          Person 4- Perforated

          Person 5- punched round corners

          Person 6 - cut small part out around the curved on the tickets

           

          I choose to hand write the address and return on all the invites and they looked very nice.  Oh and it was one stamp!!

           

          I bought natural colored hemp thread to tie around the jacket but all of my friends voted against it.
