Thanks :)  I completely spaced it and didn't track my process as I made them.  Over this past weekend, I took apart few extra invites to take some photos for the instructions.  I'd been meaning to do it for quite some time.

These are really great!!!  What was the final cost for making these?  I'm also trying to spend less on invitations, for your same reasons!  And I'd rather use budget money on other things : )

I was wondering if you know the measurements of your pocket fold pointy flap (from fold to point.) Also wondering if you know what size envelops you used?  I love your invites and think I may use them as inspiration.

I don't have a pocket fold with me now.  I can measure it for you when I get home.  As for the envelopes...I used size A7 (5 1/4" x 7 1/4").  The pocketfolds fit perfectly :)

Those came out so good! You need to start making those to sell.

Can you tell me how you made your monogram on Publisher?  I can't find anything remotely like it on there.  I just don't know where to start with templates for any of it!

I didn't use any templates.  I created it from scratch.  Start by adding a text box and typing in your text.  Change fonts, colors, etc.  You can overlap another text box over/under the other to get something similar to our monogram with the 'M' in the background. 


Play around with Publisher (or PowerPoint).  You'll become more comfortable with it and will be amazed with the endless design possibilities :)

This looks fantastic! I'm hoping to do something similar myself with our invites. And this just proves it can be done without having to spend a lot of money at a printer.

I know it said you had the monogram sent to a printer, but did you print the other parts of the invite on your home computer, or did you have it all sent to a printer?

Thanks so much for posting this. I was pulling my hairs out looking for a simple (or somewhat simple) way to create our invites.

I really like this idea. I have power point so I'll give it a try. What font did you use?
