Invitation Party!

I come from a very crafty family that would prefer to do things themselves than to have someone else do it. So of course the invitations were no exception. I had such amazingly talented help that it was well worth it and was a lot of fun.

The day started off at Anchor Paper Co who when you purchase your paper from them allows you to use any of their dozens of die cuts for free.

My dad had to stop by to pick up samples of the paper and ended up staying to use the die cut. He secretly… or not so secretly LOVED it. And had to stay a little longer to try out other die cuts.

It took roughly 90 minutes to cut, fold and trim ( due to the alterations we made to the original die cut) each of the 140 invitations.IMG_4013

Lots of amazing helpers to do one of the many tasks involved in hand making your invitations. It was awesome to share this time with those closest to me. Laura is on address duty while Ben is patiently cutting out the inserts. IMG_4014

Diane and Katy cut out 560 pieces of inserts and invitations… because they love me. Otherwise there is no way I could get them to spend this much time on my invitations. IMG_4016

Had to put in a shot with myself so you didn’t assume that I just watched everyone else work. šŸ™‚IMG_4017
