DIY Invites

I knew I would do our invites instead of ordering them.  I used 2 50% off coupons at Michael's to get the Brides damask invites.  When I opened the box I wasn't impressed.  There was just too much white for my liking, I wanted more color.  So I took on this huge task of lining them with yellow and black cardstock.  I had to hand trim all of them =(  I wanted to add another splash of color with the ribbon instead of the black that is included.  Again another trip to Michael's and FI found this perfect yellow damask ribbon and it was only $1!  I grabbed everyone that they had.  FI wanted to bling out the invitation slightly, I wanted it make it really sparkly, but he won.  I looked on line and saw these gorgeous square jewels, but they were $4 a piece and that wasn't in the budget.  I was looking aroudn Joanne's one morning and found a bag of 52 square jems for $3, they were perfect!  I used my cricut machine to make the  "M" and the swirl on the bottom.  And then I ordered return address labels from vistaprint saying "The soon to be Mrs. Lastname".  So here they are! I am so proud of them and I can't wait for my guests to see them!
