Beautiful...what font is your ampersand and your names...this is stunning for DIY.  What is Adobe Illustrator.  Don't laugh. I am not a techie...but I will become one to get something like this done.  I want quality, found beautiful base paper for our invitations...but I am kindof at a standstill.  I have all the pieces and don't know what to do with them.  Can't afford a designer.  Please reply about the Adobe and scanning in the fabric.  That will help sooo much.  Thanks!  lfortier

Beautiful!  How long did it take you to complete all of your invitations?  This would be a feat I would love to challenge but scared it may take me over board!

I've been looking for DIY pocketfolds. 


Purchasing pocketfolds alone will still put me above what I wanted to spend for invites.  This DIY is great!

These are super pretty! And also the reason I tried making my own. However, I had to convert to centimeters, and so in the end I made up my own measurements so it would fit in the envelope I had chosen. I think that is the best way to go, first find your envelope and work from there! The results are posted on my blog


I am very proud of them and received many compliments! :-D Though it was A LOT of work...and I'm not exactly sure if they turned out cheaper than store bought ones haha...
