So i wanted the most possible blinged out card box without spending a fortune. I finally finished...
So on Saturday a few of my bridesmaids came over and helped me tackle our save the dates... and I love them!
I bought my cardstock for PaperandMore.com love the quality and price compared to other sites.
I made a template before the girls came over. Marcie traced the envelope template on 12x12 black card stock while Megan cut them out. (Megan is 9 months prego... and due in less than a week!!!!) I used the large paper cutter to cut everything.. the photostrips printed from costco, the white printed cardstock and green cardstock. Carolyn was taking the photo strips I cut out and attaching them to the self stick magnets I bought off ebay.
I also made little pictures of our new house with the address on them, and that is glued on the back side of the inner envelope. I still need to make a seal for the closed inner envelope. I'll post once I finish :)
I googled for save the date poems and put two together to say this...
It stil may be early, but we hope you're delighted,
Because we've set a date, and we're very excited.
In the month of November, our vows will be made,
Saturday the 20th, is the day to be saved.
So here is a magnet for you to post,
To remember the day, we will treasure most!
The magnets are held onto the white paper with little black photo corners :)
