Super cute.  I look at that see hours of work. I’ve hand made invitations for 4 different friends wedding and can just see the amount of time that will take.  1 set took over 40 hours.

BUT I <3 THEM!!!

You did such an amazing job with these. They look BEAUTIFUL! I am so mad I didn’t do my research before buying my Cricut. I totally would have bought a Silhouette instead. I am jealous!

Looks awesome!  Did you just print them off your laser printer by using 8.5X11 paper and then cutting them?

Thanks so much!  Smile  They were actually really inexpensive to make.  Here is my estimated cost per invite:

1 1/2 sheets gray paper = $0.32

1 sheet blue paper = 0.21

1 sheet white paper = 0.10

2 adhesive pearls = 0.10 (got these at Michaels with a coupon – I think it was a pack of 42 for about $2)

A7 Outer envelope = 0.23

A2 RSVP envelope = 0.21

So that’s about $1.20 per invite.  Plus I had to buy some glue for about $2.  I’m also wrapping white lace ribbon around the outside of the pocketfold (it looks gorgeous against the gray!), so that adds about $0.20 more per invite.  Still a pretty great price for something that looks way more expensive!

The big cost savings is in making the pocketfold yourself.  It takes extra time, but I think the savings is worth it.  Making one costs about $.25, whereas buying one is about $1.50.

Yes, I just printed the inserts with my laser printer then cut them out.
