    Apologize for the double post but I posted in the general invitations thread vs here in the DIY thread, definitely where it belongs!  


    I started working on these months ago, the design process was by far the longest part, every time I opened the document I found something to change.  I finally became satisifed and went to print.  I used powerpoint to design as I am most comfortable with how the program works.  I must give credit to aylee bits for the use of the barcode image, otherwise the design was all made from scratch.    


    The tools were purchased from Michaels, in addition to what's pictured is a perforating tool and crystal brads 

    Purple, Orange and White cardstock was purchased from Paper Source. 

    Printed Scrapbook paper purchased at Michaels.

    Envelopes - 4x9 and 3.5x5 from Paper Presentation.

    Images (Graphics) from Dreamstime.

    Fonts from dafont.com


    Overall Paper Cost of each invite approx $2.


    I am so excited to get these out in the mail!!!  We did luggage tag STD's in June, sending these out now with an rsvp of January 1st, then will mail out hard plastic luggage tags for our guests in mid March.

                I love these.  I love this thread because you gift almost a step by step and even show the tools you use.  I am not very crafty so I need as many details as possible.  I am looking forward to doing my own.  I am going to Michaels this weekend! Happy planning!

                      Thank you Ladies!! I appreciate all the kind word surrounding my invites!  My guests have raved, loved how "unique" they are, not unique to us because we see them all the time on this thread but...  The only thing I would change is to do them on a laser printer.  I have found that ink jet bleeds if even the tiniest spot of water goes on the paper.  I'd be happy to share the template, minus the graphics, sorry, I paid a pretty penny for those flowers through dreamstime.  I plan on using them throughout my entire stationary suite.  Send me a pm :)
