    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!!

            Hi!! Thanks so much =) Well, maybe it felt longer than it actually was- because I would work on them a little bit every night when I got home from work. The cutting is what really took the longeest to complete! For everything, from cutting to addressing envelopes, I would say it took about 10-12 hours. Exhausting, but worth it =)

                    THANK YOU SOOO MUCH LADIES!! It makes me realize they really are as amazing as I thought they were =) When you look at something for so long, you start to question everything!

                    LOL Thanks to my FI who helped me to stay grounded- I was going to go all out with other ideas and ticket holders and jackets- WAY too much, I really love the way they came out- simple & elegant!

                     

                    I couldn't have done it without this forum!

                    I'll be sure to post my next DIY adventure I go on haha
