Going back to the invites, I have planned to really document everything that I do for this, as in step-by-step, 'cause this is my first major "project". But turns out, it's not that easy - I don't want to stop in the middle of cutting and pasting to get my camera and take pictures. Nevertheless, I took a couple of shots using my phone.
I stole some office hours and used the office guillotine cutter to cut all the needed papers (but I still need to get 10 more sheets - blame it on my wrong math).
|Do you see red??|
|After cutting about 90 sheets of paper, my fingertips turned red!!|
I went home early yesterday for my simple birthday dinner, and to work on the invites. So, that night, I asked my cousin to come over and help out. We managed to do a lot of stuff, I could say. It's really a good thing to have a helper. She's also my runner, by the way ;).
|I used my corner chomper 'cause I don't want to have that plain, straight corner.|
(And just so I can use my chomper. Haha!)
Then, we were also able to put the lace- the bride's peg- on about 40 invites. Poor thing the lace we got wasn't enough (go ahead, blame my math again), we could have finished everything that night.
Oh, I was also able to score, fold, and emboss the inside pocket. It looks like this:
|This will be pasted inside|
|For additional mush... Hehe!|
So, that's Day 1, folks! I've accomplished quite a lot, don't you think? Haha! Tonight, if I still don't have the energy to face my thesis again (and all its insignificant results!!), I'll work on the invites. I'll probably paste the pocket flap in the inside, and tuck the laces on the side. Yeah, that I'll do. My cousin might go back to Divisoria within the week to get the extra lace we'll need, plus some more materials.
There's still much to do - the monogram, the adding of the beads, and most importantly, the inside details. But that can wait, I guess. As long as I finish before the second week of December. I think I can. ;)
Until Day 2! :)
