Finished DIY Save the Date

Originally I found these photo 56656-1


Originally I found these save the dates and I LOVED them. But the price was outragous... $80.00 for only 20. So I thought of a better way... DIY!!


I based my invites completely off of this photo and tweeked it to my liking as well!

Finished Product!


Originally I found these photo 56656-2Originally I found these photo 56656-3


All together the final product turned out really nice! I really love how they look professional and fun!


As you can see they are pretty much the same as the photo above which i based the save the dates off of in the first place. The only difference is I added a few snowflakes for a winter touch! :)


All together I used white card stock pack of 150 pages. 4 save the dates printed on one 8' by 11' piece of paper. Then to add a nice touch and make them a bit larger I used black card stock. To put them together I used double sided tape. Then I bought some magnent tape and a little bit goes a long way... because the magnent was very good. And wa-la! haha


Price:


White Card Stock (150) : $3.00 Jo Anns


Black Card Stock (60)   : $4.00 Jo Anns


Double Sided tape:         $3.00 Jo Anns


Magent Tape:                $4.00 Jo Anns


                        TOTAL: $14.00            Makes 130 Invites

Thank you all for the compliments! :) Makes me feel proud of my work!


I can't wait to see what my family thinks!


WMforever I am not sending out the invites in any fancy way. I bought some nice envelopes from the store and plan on putting them in there and off they go! :)


 


Thanks again everyone!

Wow those are great!! - For the magnet tape was it just a strip along the back? 



I really want to do the whole magnet save the date - but shoot - I'd much rather pay $20 or less instead of $80 or more :)

No the magnent tape on the back of the card is the magnent.


All the save the dates finally went out and everyone was very impressed! I am super happy with how they turned out! I had a couple of friends joke around saying they were forced to put it on the fridge because of the magnent! haha.. so it is a good idea witht he magnent! :]


Thanks to everyone who helped inspire me! :] I am currently working on the Invitations! Oh man... they will be a doozy haha! Yes I said Doozy! ;]


I am taking step by step pictures so you all can be informed! :]
