hello wedding - shower invites:

August 31, 2010

i blogged about our wedding shower last week, and thought i'd share the invites with you. they were really simple and easy to make for yourself if you have a party or an event coming up!

Photobucket
so all you basically need are the following:

- A6 flat card in your color choice.
- #1 baby envelopes. these from envelope mall would work too.
- resealable polypropylene / cello bags for A6 size cards.
- blank label sticker paper.
Photobucket
i printed on both sides of the A6 card and attached the little envelope on the right. i printed and cut out the little cards that went inside the envelope. (you could also order them to save time cutting)
Photobucket
the card goes into the clear cello bag, then seal it.
Photobucket
i created a wrap around label. i printed on the blank sticker
paper and cut it out so i could just place it on the clear bag.
Photobucket
all done! a view of the back.

and the view of the front!

for postage, i took it to the post office and they told me it costs extra to mail the plastic. so that was a bummer - it was .64 cents instead of the normal .44. but luckily they have pretty butterfly stamps out right now! :) but postage is definitely something i'd consider in the future before designing a card / invite.

  27. I totally feel you on finding the perfect postage stamp. I had sunflower stamps all picked out for my wedding invitations and then the post office was out of them. I had a little melt down right there in the post office until the postal lady told me that you could design your own stamps at zazzle.com. They were perfect! The only thing that cost extra was (I think) just the shipping, so it's totally worth it.
