Favor Boxes and Invitations

13 Jul

What do you get when you have no money to spend and a three day weekend?  A bunch of wedding preparations done!

Jen worked on the favor boxes for hours, and now we have a total of 100 done (with 2 in progress).  We only ordered 100 boxes, so we’re going to search for 18+ more.

Meanwhile, Temoc worked on the design of the “Direction” card for the invitations.  They’re nearly complete.

We also made our first invitation.  Although it’s not the final product, we are happy with how it turned out.  The process was much easier than we had anticipated.  We spent about $16 (oops!) on a new paper cutter/scorer.  We weren’t sure how to make the “V,” which is why it took us so long to make our first invitation.  We hoped the new paper cutter would work because it was cheaper/easier than the alternatives – and it did!  Here’s a sneak peek of the invitation:
