But the other day I was working on a small part of my invitations (yes, I'll be making them of course) and thought I would give you a sneak peek. This isn't going to give you a whole lot of insight into my design, and it's not super exciting, but I have to start somewhere.
Earlier this summer I thought it would be a good idea to make my own envelopes.
Yup, you read that right. I'm making 130+ envelopes, when I can just as easily buy them at the store. But here's my defense. Each piece of white cardstock costs $0.05 which means I can make 130 for $6.50. And they're exactly the right size.
I believe the origin of this crazy idea went something like this: I made a mock-up of my invitation. I didn't have any envelopes at the house. I was really antsy to try this new envelope lining fad. I found templates in the basement from my mom's old stamping days. I decided to alter one to fit my invitation. I made a liner to go with it. I was sold, easy as that.
And now not so easy, is the process of making a bajillion more. It actually is quite easy, it's just extremely time consuming. To date, I have about 100 made, and only 50 or so lined. p.s. if you're going to run envelopes through your printer, do that first, and THEN line them. I learned this the hard way.
And that's all you get.
But if you remember, I already shared my map with you, so I'm not doing too bad.
There will be much more I promise!
