    Which I am definitely one of! So I recently found a store called "paper source" while I was wandering the streets of Boston (being unemployed is starting to get to me!). I was a little hesitant because the store window looked pricey, but when I went inside and said I wanted to make my own wedding invitations they were super nice to me.

    Anyway, long story short, this store has all these great paper products for brides who want to make their own invitations but need a little help. They had paper products in all types of shapes, colors, sizes, and designs. Plus the store was filled with people just waiting to walk you through the process! I was all types of excited, because I am so freakin DIY-challenged that I resigned myself to spending a ton on invitations even though I have all this free time to make them. PLUS (my favorite part) they have little tutorials on their websites. It's literally this little lady walking you through how to make your own invitation. LOVE IT!

    Here is a link to how to make a "petal" invitation. You can check out other types too :)

        I have done all of my paper products with stuff from that store and they all turned out super cute...STDs, Invites, RSVPs, Seating Cards, Welcome Letters, etc. They are so helpful, even if you want to go into the store once a week for help. (which I did!)

            oh I have seen that store before, I agree I thought it looked expensive. I will have to check it out.
