Pocketfold Invitations... The Trial

I am pretty much finished with my trial run making a sample pocketfold invitation. I still need to figure out exactly what I'm going to do to close it. I've ordered some ribbon to use as a belly band with the paper seal, but it's not here yet so I can't show photos with it on there.

These photos are a little blurry because I had to open them with the Paint program in order to blur out our last names. When I post instruction photos and photos of the actual invitation, I'll be sure to do it all in Photoshop so I don't have the same problem.

Enjoy!

It looks great! What is the size? Would you care to share your template?

Heather said...

Thank you. The size when closed is 5x7". Honestly, I don't have a template... I just played around with the paper and did it!

I love your invitations! Any advice/help you can offer? How did you do your monogram? I'm horrible with microsoft publisher and am pulling the hair out of my head!!!

I like your invites! Where did you buy/how did you make the little rectangle to close your pocketfolds with? They are so cute!

Hi there,
Wondering where you ordered the stickers you used to close invites from? meghanncrosby at yahoo dot com. TIA!

I'm making similar invites - would you be willing to do a close up of the little cards inside? I'm having the hardest time wording mine. I keep going back and forth.

I really appreciate it!!! Thanks!

PS did you use Stardream paper? Did it print well?

Thanks!

Hey there! I love your invitations! I am KaraCake06 on the knot and found your bio. I would love to make these but am kinda curious how you bought the paper. I emailed Tom at anchor paper and he directed me on how to order samples. BUT I am just unsure of the size... can you please email me and explain this to me. I saw your dimensions but the paper size on the anchor paper is 8.5/11 or some other weird size not 16/ something.Can ya help me?
