My DIY Invitations

I am so pleased with how they turned out. 

We did the wax seals.  They were a bit more work than what I thought and we had to use more than what the directions specified but I love how they turned out.

 They look great. I was planning on using wax seals myself, so I'm glad you mentioned that you need more than the package directions specify.

 Thanks ladies.  Those are the best pics I can get for now but I would love to have better photographs of them.

 I just used card stock for everything.  The matte background is what they called a metallic champagne card stock.  The picture doesn't really do it justice.  It's like a shimmery color but not too much going on.

 Thanks Nicole! Yes, the wax seals were a total pain.  Even though we did a few practice runs we didn't really start getting the hang of it until we were almost finished.  My advice to anyone who does this is to practice with an entire stick of wax before you start.  It's worth it.  

Also, igonore the directions that read you only have to let a couple of drops drip.

they are so amazing, but I just think it would be better if you use red wax instead of the metallic one. It would look more classic, I think :)

 Yes, I'm sure you are right it probably would have but it went with our color scheme and I was happy with the color I just wished we would have practiced more.
