    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.

    Our Gift Box Invitations

     

    The box unwrapped.

    The gift box invitation.

    My Break Down of where I got everything......

     

    Starfish Magnet:

    Starfish Magnet

     

    Seeing Stars..

    I bought the 3-4 inch Starfishes from Ebay Seller - Bestshells 50 psc for $13

    http://www.ebay.com/...=item4601478c85

     

     

    I bought the flat Magnet Disc, 1/2"x1/16" from Ebay Seller - Gokrip 50psc for $16

    http://www.ebay.com/...-All-Categories

     

    Add hot glue and wholah you have yourself a starfish magnet. I started to see stars myself after making these...

     

    Invitation Boxes:

    My invitations were 5x7, so I purchased the "gift box" - 50 boxes for about $30

    http://www.papermart...pID=18993#11230

     

    The Invitations:

    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.
