    For some reason I thought it would be fun to make my invitations so now I am sitting here with a blister on my thumb from "punching" 3/4" squares, an indentation in my finger from cutting O rings, and darling FI is enjoying a beer while my dear Sabres get their asses handed to them again with his buddies. What was I thinking? Ok, back to cutting strips...

      haha, I feel you! I was there for my STDs. For some reason, I thought hand cutting the rounded corners of my boardng pass STDs was a good thing...I had some crazy hand cramps the whole time. Glad I didn't use a hole puncher, sounds painful!

      But look at it on the bright side... you'll have a gorgeous DIY project done! And you can post your pretty pictures on here and then we can all tell you how wonderful you are.

        I so feel your pain right now. My back is killing me from cutting all the paper. And my FI is sleeping (he does work nights) but still.

          LOL. I totally feel your pain (literally!!).

          I had blisters from cutting our invites, but luckily FH helped and had blisters as well.

          It's a total PITA but we are both really pleased that its something we can call our own!

          Ah yes... the proof that you have done them yourself! My issue was the double sided tape kept sticking to my finger. Eventually my finger went raw from pulling off too much skin! Well, not really... but it sure felt like it!

            LOL! Oh, how I remember hitting the point where I was kicking myself for ever starting the DIY invite thing. You'll get through it with a few war wounds & a bruised psyche, and if you are like me you will vow never to step foot in a craft store again. But like Heidi mentioned, you get the glory of posting them here & we will ooo & ahh, we promise
