Bridal Shower Invitations

Today I took a little break from my sewing machine and worked with paper!  I made the bridal shower invitations :)

I am not the most creative scrapbooker, and I don't really have tons of materials and tools that most scrapbookers would have, so I just pulled out what I do have and got to work!

Ayden wanted to help, so I put him to work with the flower punch

I got pre-scalloped cardstock at Staples and used their online template to set up my printer to print right onto the cardstock paper

I added a little touch to the corner with the flower punch

I cut strips of ribbon and paper

then put it all together!

while those laid out to dry, I addressed the envelopes

I designed and had 100 recipe cards printed out.

Each invitation includes two cards, that are to be filled out and brought back to the shower. I ordered this awesome recipe box from Etsy, with the matching divider cards. The box will get filled up at the shower!

I added another flower punch detail to the envelope, and glued a flower on the seal

And now they are off to the post office! The shower is just 4 weeks away!
