This past Saturday was our engagement party. You would probably not be surprised to learn that I don't care for evites- no matter how casual the party. I had to make actual invitations for this event. As with most things I do, it was a simple, but involved process.
Tony punched out the mini envelopes, and pretty soon we had a big stack of them.They are very simple to fold into envelopes. While Tony was doing that, I wrote out our wording in calligraphy, scanned it, then printed it onto cream cards.
I also wrote out our announcement then scanned and printed those.
I attached the mini envelope to the card then put in the mini note.
The most time consuming part was writing our return address on the back and addressing all of them. A labor of love that was well worth it. We were pleased with how they turned out and got a lot of positive feedback from our friends.
