Hi Ladies! First and foremost, I would like to thank all of you fabulous brides & brides-to-be. Without your inspiration and advice, I would never have even attempted to do this myself! Although it took way longer than I anticipated, it was totally worth it! I gave them to our parents for an initial reaction, and they thought we had them professionally done!
I hope this thread helps and inspires you all =)
Breakdown of supplies & costs:
Round corner punch & square hole punch
Here is another view, as the colors vary in different lighting [due to the shimmer paper]
The color really pops nicely in person, you can get a better idea of it by this one below:
As for the envelopes, I was able to print directly onto them! Just do a test first to be sure they will go through your printer without jamming or smearing!
I used Powerpoint to create these because it allowed me to recolor to my liking and edit each image. I'm not sure if it was the printer or the paper, but the original colors I used came out totally different when they printed [came out all red]! It took a bit of modifying, but it worked out just fine.
I downloaded the FREE template from Aylee Bits! I actually deleted all of the information that was already included, so I also created a blank template for those of you who want to make one from scratch as I have.
I am thrilled with the final product, and hope you all like them as much as I do!!
