I have been busy. I don't mean your average, every day life busy. I mean busy. Most of it is my own fault... what can I say? Ian's birthday is coming up soon. I created the invitation and had them printed and today, I used some paper Stephen and I had left over from our Save the Date video and made homemade envelopes. OMG! They are so adorable! Since the paper is busy, I printed the addresses on those Avery stickers. I didn't take step-by-step pictures because I didn't think to document it. :( But, I will walk you through it.
The invitations I printed are 4x6. So, of course, my envelopes needed to match. I didn't know envelope sizes, so I Googled It. (I am obsessed with everything Google). I needed A6 envelopes. I googled "free A6 envelope template" and I got a great one! I then printed it out, cut it out, and traced it onto the paper I wanted to use. I held the envelope together with some double-sided tape that I already had.
I then put the invitation in the envelope and sealed it with a cute return label on the back! It is wonderful. Total cost of Ian's invitations? Less than $3. Wonderful! :) I love his invitations too. But, I can't share what we wrote on them until after his birthday because people haven't gotten their invitations yet.
So no... I do not need these extra added things to go on in life. But, who would I be if I was denying my creative side?
I'm sorry. I'll try and update more frequently. Until next time...
Keep it real.
