I love making paper products, and this time I think I took it too far.
Our engagement party is coming up with family and close friends, and I thought it would be fun to make our invitations. Twenty or so invitations. Not so bad. I didn’t realize how much time it would take to stage the “production line” and make up the templates for the directions, frame, “visit our site” cards, and envelopes. I also made the envelopes… and the glue. 😛
Regardless of the work, I’m really proud of them!
I was a bit upset that the size of the invitations wasn’t generic. So, I decided just to make the envelopes instead of attempting to search it out. But I needed glue that wouldn’t destroy the envelope once someone opened it. The Postman’s Knock has a great tutorial on how to make envelope glue with natural products: vinegar, sugar, gelatin, and vanilla extract.
Here’s one more paper product I made just for fun.
Next project: Embossing!
