Monday Crafting

Decided to make the invites for the celebrations next year - I mean, seriously, have you seen the price of invites?! I wanted the pocket ones with lots of info, and for the style I was looking at, well, in excess of £3.50 seemed the norm! And at least this way I could have them exactly how I wanted.

Remember I made the Save The Date cards as bookmarks all for less than a fiver :)

  • The card and tags were part of a 12" x 12" pack from Hobbycraft called Love Letters, I just thought the colours were perfect for a vintage theme.
  • Martha Stewart border punch Jeff bought me back from America a couple of years ago
  •  Buttons from a car boot for 30p - and I have 100's left over :)
  • White card, paper and Cats Eyes ink already in my crafting supplies :)
So, even if you add in the cost of the bits I already had, 30 invites cost around a tenner - compared to at least £105!! Now that I call a bargain - of course if we add in the hourly rate, not so much! But seeing as I'm stuck at home, might as well do something with my time.


Work in progress :)
All done and ready for posting - next year :)
