I really really wanted one of those pocket fold invitations, but when I was looking at the supplies that I would need plus the cost, well it really didn't seem like I would be saving that much money...I like the idea of DIY not only because it adds a personal touch...but I am cheap there I admitted it LOL!!!!
Playing on Pinterest one day I came across the inspiration of my wedding invitations.
I cut a small half circle in each of the new cards, only through the first page, I traced a Mt. Dew lid with pencil to get the exact size and shape I needed. This would make a kind of pull tab opening for the invites.
I then glued each card on the right side and bottom, to make a little pocket (that is where that gluing tool came so handy!!
I then made a HUGE mistake, taking all the extra cards I had from the save he dates (I only needed the envelopes) I cut them to size....don't do this it won't fit in a home printer, or at any printing store. I had to buy office depots card stock to have my invites printed then cut them down to size....all that cutting would have been awful, except for that great cutting tool I have!!
Great cutting tool!!!!
I stamped all the cards, blue card stock, and invitations, took a few practice runs on all those left over pre-cut cards until I found what I liked the most!
