Have a wonderful weekend!
I had a much easier time finding fabrics in our colors than I did with patterend paper. So I bought 1/2 yard of 3 different fabrics ($6.80) and a 1.75 inch circle whole punch ($9.99) from HL. I also purchased a corner rounder to mimi the shape of the escort cards in the photo ($6.99).
Fonts:I looked for font solutions right away because everyone has seen the "fancy" fonts offered by Microsoft Word. No thanks. I found dafont.com and it was awesome. You can search by the type of font your looking for and they are free to download. I ended up using Jellyka, Saint-Andrew's Queen for our names and envelope labels and Hanshand for the other wording on the invitations.
The Finished Product:
Total Spent on Invitations:
Ink Pad: $2.99
Pack of White Card Stock: $4.99
Yellow Paper: $7.93
Blue Paper: $12.39
Hole Punch: $9.99
Corner Rounder: $6.99
**Note: The whole punch and corner rounder did push the invitation total over what I had expected to pay but I consider these two items investments for my future crafting!**
A "W" charm for my future last name.
So all of these flowers were put together with absolutely no prior experience, just some research on YouTube. Pretty good, eh? And the best part? They are done already and we still have four months to go! Just one more thing I won't have to worry about in August!
I bought all of the flowers and supplies for my bouquet for just under $40.00 and used the left overs to whip up the boutonnieres. Definitely under budget!
