- Wedding: September 2012
Finally I can post my final Save the dates!
I am a huge fan of balloons, and I was inspired by some pictures I found online of balloons as STD’s. And with my wedding being very lightly inspired from the movie UP, I just had to have balloons!
I just bought a pack of plain white cards and envelopes at Michaels. Cost about $2.50 for a pack of 25 card & envelopes. They are about 4.25″ x 5.5″ The balloons were ordered online from: extratwist which were really good prices for custom balloons. All artwork was created by me! 🙂
My tools to create them apart from my home printer and microsoft word were the following: 1- Round paper punch (Yard Sale- but a new one is about $10) 2- Corner Embossing/Punch ($3 clearance from Jo Ann’s) 3- Bakers Twine ($4 from Michaels) 4- Heart Stamp 4- Stamp Pad ($1 Michaels) 5- X-acto knife which was being used to create holes for the string, but thankfully my son of a seamstress FI decided to thread the string through a needle which worked wonderfull!! 🙂
the balloon artwork was this:
