wedding invitations
Tuesday September 05th, 2006 04:16 PM
We finally finished our wedding invites!

To make them we:
*cut giant sheets of handmade (not by us) paper down to size
*traced the acorn picture for the cover onto vellum and embossed it
*attached the acorn picture with photo-corners because every type of glue looked awful
*printed all the info for each sheet onto vellum and cut those down to size
*perforated the RSVP cards so that once they're filled out the guests can just tear them out and pop them in the mail
*embossed an acorn stamp onto the back of the postcard RSVPs
*hole punched them and tied all the layers together with a bit of ribbon

It seemed a lot easier/quicker in my head, but then isn't that how all projects turn out? :)

I love unique, homemade invitations like these, especially for weddings! These are very beautiful and special! I like anything with leafy, nature-y designs.

I also think it's neat that you are asking your guests for music suggestions... I think that will make them feel more a part of the celebration!
