Save the Date

What do you think these envelopes are made out of?

A few people that I worked with asked me the same question. And I said, Magazines!

Oh yes! It’s free and easy to do. These are what I will be using in mailing my Save the Dates!

I started by cutting a magazine page into 8in x 8in paper using my Trim and Score Board by We R.


This tool is very handy in cutting papers quickly and precisely. Of course, you could use whatever you have in hand.

Also, let me know if you guys wanted a vid of how I made the envelopes!

They look so pretty and you won’t regret spending your dime for something that will be thrown away. Sweet!

And of course, what’s the use of the envelope without the important invite.

Here’s a short vid of my first Save the Date draft.

​I used the Gimp software to design the invitation. 

I will be using purple, blue and gold foils to give color and sparkle to the letters. In order for the foil to stick on the letters, I’m using the Minc applicator by Heidi Swapp.

The paper that I’m using is a white 8.5 by 11 in white cardstock​. Bought a 250 pieces package from Staples, very cheap! 

My plan is to print 4 Save the Dates in one paper. Cut them into 4 postcard size pieces, 4 1/4 in by 5 in.

Then at the back of every card will be a message to our guests. 

I will be posting the finished project as soon as I receive the foils that I’m using in the mail. 

I can’t wait!
