Okay Ladies, these are finally done. Thank you so much for all the wonderful posts and pics on this site, I wouldn't of been able to pull this off on my own. It also helped that my sister is a graphic designer so I told her the invites I liked and what I wanted as details and she created the invites and the labels. This it was up to me to cut, score, perferate, punch, glue and cut some more :) I would not call myself crafty so if I can pull this of then everyone can. I made 140 of these invites and sent them out about a month ago, I instantly had comments about how awesome they were....most people didn't even know they were DIY. It made it totally worth the 2-3 weeks of cramping hands :)

 

I did not have any supplies so I bought a Personal paper trimmer from Michaels with a scoring and perfrating blade.

I also bought a corner cutting tool which was so helpful and I used it on my invites and the sleeves.

I bought all my cardstock and envelopes from paperandmore.com and I found some great wrapping paper at Target that I used for the liner I created for the envelopes!

 

I would attach the template for the invite itself but it is in PDF and I am having my sister blackout our address before I post :) Sorry the pictures are poor, I took them with my phone :(

 

Here is the invite itself...it has 3 pages with the last one a RSVP that can be detached and sent to us...I connected all 3 with a small square brad.

This one is of the sleeve - I used a "Fun in the Sun" stamp on the corner, cut at an angle and then glued the end so the invite wouldn't fall out

I used ribbon raffia from from The Container Store to close the sleeve

Here is a pic of the envelope liner, I don't think it was needed but I thought it looked cool and gave the whole thing a pop
