    I guess that's all for now...I will post more pictures of everything set-up at the wedding when we get back, so you can see how it all looked!  I hope this helped inspire some of you as this forum has for me.  Good luck in your planning!! :)

        I said cricut because I figured more people know what that is...I actually used a silhouette machine (which is very similar).  I designed the template in adobe illustrator and then opened that in the silhouette program.  I drew the shapes based on an invitation I saw on Etsy, (but couldn't imagine paying $400 for just 25 invitations).  It is an extremely time consuming process and illustrator is not an easy program to use unless you have been trained or have experience with it.  There are many similar papel picado invitations available on Etsy now though if you're interested in saving yourself the headache.  Good luck! :)

        Hello, I just wanted to compliment you on all your DIY wedding creations. Me and my fiance wanted to purchase the papel picado invitations, but it came out to be $700 for 100 invites not including RSVPs and envelopes. We attempted to make them with the cricut, but it's not exactly what we had hoped. I wanted to ask you if it would be possible to send your illustrator file (I currently have the program on my computer) and I can edit and cut the image on our silhouette machine. We have the Cameo cutting machine. I would greatly appreciate your help or advice. Thanks!

        @LaLa1116  OMG, your wedding (and video) was just stunning.  I totally teared up watching it.  Your groom's speech.  *swoon*   All your hard work totally paid off, your wedding was just beautiful.  Thanks for posting everything in the blog.  It was great to follow along and then see everything come to fruition in the video.
