For Keeps

I've seen a framed wedding invitation in just about every house I've been in--at least those of married couples. Because our invitations are not of the regular "card" variety, I kind of figured maybe we wouldn't frame an invitation at all. But over the weekend, it hit me. The perfect solution: a shadow box.

I went to Michael's after work yesterday and bought a shadow box (regularly $24.99, but I had a 50% off coupon, so $12.50). I went home and put together a little invitation display. I'm quite happy with how it turned out. I had to trim the pocketfold flap a little bit to get it to fit into the box, but you can barely even tell.

Now we just have to figure out where we want to hang it up.

Oh, that's a great idea! I'll have to remember that for mine :)

I love your invitations (and your blog in general)... I was wondering ... how did you print your invites and inserts? Did you do it at home using a laser or inkjet printer or did you take them to a copy shop like Kinkos or Staples to have them done?
