    I made 120 invites yesterday so feeling pleased with myself. Just charging camera so can take a photo :)

    Only have the minor problem now of not having a venue :lol: :) Still once we sort that I will only have to print off the info and stick it on...!

    :) I know it's a lot! We haven't got as many guests as that number suggests either lol but I'm expecting only a 50% acceptance from my guests due to the distance so will then need more invites and thought may as well make them all at once. :)

    1 pack of blank cards + 4 sheets of wrapping paper =

    I cut the cards in half so they are postcard like. On the other side I've got some pale green paper that I'll print all the wording on etc and also green is our colour scheme. I wanted green sparkly hearts on the front but couldn't find any paper I liked better than this one so black and red sparkly it was! :)

    Erm about 3 hours I think (so bad I can't remember when I only did them yesterday!). Had a few interuptions and had lunch in between so didn't feel too bad in fact I was a bit disappointed when I'd finished. I've got a spare sheet of wrapping and a few offcuts for doing anything else we need too :)

    They look great Helen - always better to be prepared and have extras left over than need to make more and not have enough supplies!
