How to Make Wedding Invites in ___ Days (Day 2 and Day 3)

The other day and yesterday, I continued making the invitations.  And I was surprised that I accomplish a lot in a matter of, say, two hours.  Now, the only problem is I still need the lace, and we couldn't go to Divisoria just anytime we want. Also, I realized, delay happens when I run out of materials - my gluey tape, the envelopes, etc.  Anyway, here goes: :)

Day 2

I finished tucking the laces inside

And here's sticking the pocket fold inside the card

There's the red lace I was talking about
Day 3

I finished all the materials that I have, so now I'm just waiting for the lace and for the details for the inside - the most important part!

Here's what I did last night:

I initially planned to make the envelopes on my own - I thought it would be cheaper and more beautiful that way.  But after practicing, it didn't appear like that.  Haha!  Envelopes are so hard to make -and a big paper is also hard to find.  Good thing I found some envelopes with the right size.  I just bought those and embossed a little something in front just so it would look more unique and "classy", or so the video tutorial says. ;)

I used my Ultimate Crafter's Companion Tool!! :D

Does it make a lot of difference??  Haha!  In case it doesn't, it's fine.  It was easy to make, anyway.

Envelopes?  Done!
 By the way, here's my latest toy!!  It embosses and cuts, with the templates and die cuts you purchase, of course.  I hate that I like this expensive stuff!

I used this to emboss the LOVE thingy. :)
There!  I'm almost done!  When I finish this, I'm gonna proceed to doing my Christmas gifts (sorry, people, all you're gonna get from poor teacher me is handmade stuff.  haha!).  Also, this year, I plan to give some parents I've worked with a little something - maybe gift tags in case they want to embellish their presents this year. ;)

Until Day 4!
