Spiced up Target Invite

Hello all! Long time no see. I've been so busy that I practically disappeared from the internet (WHAT?). Right. Anyway, thanks to a bunch of my family and friends I've finally wrapped up my wedding invitations! I wanted to share with you today how I spiced up the flimsy invitations from Target!

Here's what Target's Letter Impress set looks like out of the box. It is only 35 dollars for 50 invites (including invitation card, envelope, response card & envelope) Flimsy and blah...but definitely has potential!

I knew I wanted an invitation with pockets that can hold additional information for out of town guests. So off I go to create my own envelope and information cards! In addition, I wanted to "style" it so it's not SO Target-y.

The material I used:
  • Bazzil Kraft cardstock (One 12x12 for each envelope)
  • Bazzil Espresso cardstock
  • Recollection Ivory cardstock (50 sheets for 3 dollars at Michael's. What a steal.)
  • Scalloped circle punch
  • Corner rounder punch
  • Some camping twine
Here are the results!!!
