We knew a lot of our family members could not attend our destination wedding, but we still sent out 100 gift box invitations with a starfish magnet for a keepsake.
Let me show you pictures then break it down on how I threw it together.
How they arrived to the guests.
The box unwrapped.

My Break Down of where I got everything......
I bought the 3-4 inch Starfishes from Ebay Seller - Bestshells 50 psc for $13
I bought the flat Magnet Disc, 1/2"x1/16" from Ebay Seller - Gokrip 50psc for $16
Add hot glue and wholah you have yourself a starfish magnet. I started to see stars myself after making these...
My invitations were 5x7, so I purchased the "gift box" - 50 boxes for about $30
were made by a friend- Free
I printed the invitation on photo paper from Sam's Club - .38/each
and glued them to card stock for a layering effect. - $30.99 for 100 sheets.
I'm using this cardstock for my programs as well.
The RSVP postcards & Enclosure Cards:
I had these printed up on 4x6 by http://www.uprinting.com/ - $50
To send off each invitation was $1.92
This was a lot of work and very expensive but was worth every penny for us.
I would do this again in a heartbeat.
Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
