Wedding DIY Project Craft Day: Invitations

Four friends (Mooflyfoof, Hilary, Ames, and Steve) spent their Saturday morning helping us bring our invitations to life. We set up five stations to begin with: Invitation Cutting; Insert Cutting; Gift Tag Cutting/Cornering; Twine Measuring/Cutting; and Envelope Addressing.

Once all the components were prepared, we surrounded Ames and Steve's dining room table and began assembling and securing gift tags to each invitation packet.

From front left clockwise: Hilary cuts out the gift tags. cubes punchs the corners and circle for thread. Mooflyfoof cuts outs invitations.

I'm hard at work cutting Sharing inserts. Ames is busy addressing all of our envelopes. Notice the yummy Bloody Marys to my left?
