    I started off looking for wedding invitations that were beachy & classy at the same time. Looked at many images online & found some amazing ones that I loved but not at $20 an invitation before shipping to guests. So I decided to make some invitations of my own & this is what I came up with....

    From Michaels I bought:

    • Celebrate It Brand Invitation kit Ivory- 50 Invitations + 50 Response cards & Envelopes for both @ $24.99 (With 40% off coupon $14.99)
    • Pink Transparent paper- Regularly priced @ .59  although I got most of mine at .20 because they are always having paper sales
    • Martha Stewart Heart paper cutter- @ $14.99 (on sale)
    • Starfish- @ $3.99 (for 3) But ordered then in bulk & received a 20% discount 
    • Trinket Pins- @ $5.99 (for 15)
    • Celebrate It Brand Ribbon-  2 for $3.00 (got about 35 invitation wraps per ribbon spool) 
    • Bag of Basic seashells- $5.99 (about 20-25 per bag)

     

     

    From Hobby Lobby I bought:

    • Burlap- @ $3.99 a yard (Got 10 invitation box wraps per yard)
    • Charms- @ $1.99 for 2 charms
    • Sand dollars- @ $4.99 (Got about 9 wraps out of 1 Box)

     

     

    Personalized Wedding luggage tags- @ .71 for 140       www.weddingfavorsunlimited.com

    White wedding shipping boxes- @ .98 per box via my local UPSstore

    Brown Invitation boxes- @ .46 per box via my local UPSstore

    Shipping tape for boxes- @ $7.00          www.tapeswell.com 

     

    With shipping the invitation boxes come out to be under $10 each
