The photo says 4 5/8" by 6 3/4"


I'm going to go out on a limb and say an envelope that can accomodate that size...

I just wanted to say thank you so much for this idea! My fiance and I used this idea for our invitations, but also added our own little touches to them. And they came out perfect. Everybody loved them! Thank you again :)
