    If I can do it anyone can b/c trust me I'm neither crafty or creative.

              I was worried about that too, I thought I just end up wasting a lot of money and not be able to achieve the results I wanted.  I tried as much as possible to purchase things that could be used in various ways.  For example since I couldn't find any clipart that I loved I purchased 12 credits for $7 and then purchased  4 images at 3 credits each, making each image $1.71 I used these same images throughout to get my money's worth.  I did a quick calculation of my invites and luggage tags for you:

               

              Invites:

              Ticket Jacket $0.38 per jacket

              Boarding Pass $0.00, I used printer paper that I already had

              Image $1.71

              Palm Tree Brad $0.10 each

               

              35 Invites = $18.51 or $0.53 each, no postage was required as we had a party before Christmas and handed them out then

               

              Luggage Tags

              Plastic Sleeve $0.08 per sleeve

              Luggage Loop $0.06 per loop

              Paper - used printer paper that I already had

              Cost per luggage tage $0.14

               

              Table Numbers

              Vase =  $2.00 each

              Vellum Paper = $.52 sheet

              Image = $1.71, used same image from invite

               

              6 Table Numbers = $16.83, or $2.80 a piece

                Found another a picture to add to the collection.  I wanted to do cake boxes since we are having a dessert after dinner and thought people may want to take a piece back to their room to snack on.  The only ones I could find locally were just a plain ugly white so I broke out the paint I had left over from painting shells, picture frames, etc and here is the end product:
