    Tris, are you willing to share how much these ended up costing total/per invitation?

      Erin - That's completely alright. I'd love to see how they turn out :)

       

      C&J - The linen was $12 a roll (but I used 40% off gift certs at Michaels, so they were less). I fit 8 per sheet. So let's say after tax about $1.50 a piece for the fabric. The printing was cheap for me because of connections with my job, so I got it all at cost (around .50 per invite). The teal cardstock was $1 a sheet, and I used 2 for each. The white cardstock to build the base, let's say .10 per (I bought huge sheets and made a bunch off of each). Ribon, twine, etc, maybe .50 per invite?

       

      In the end I worked it out and I made them for about $5 a piece. But that's with tons of deal hunting :). I do freelance design on the sign and if I made these for anyone I would charge about $10 per invite because of the amount of work involved.

       

      Hope that helps.

          I only made 20 so it wasn't that bad :)

          That's one of the better parts of a DW, less guests = less invites! haha.
