While I was in Indiana, I picked up some goldish-brown paper for the pocketfold invitations. I tested it out to see how I liked it when I got home. I really like it. Just that little border really sets off the invitation.
So, last night, I started back on the pocketfolds. If you remember, I bought 20"x26" inch sheets of navy blue cardstock. Last night, I cut out the 5"x20" sheets that I will need for the pocketfolds. I did 90 of them. It took quite a while, but it was really easy with my enormous, handy-dandy paper cutter.
[This is what a stack of 90 future invitations looks like.]
Then I got started on the tracing. In the background of that photo, you can see my orange cutouts. I line them up on the edges of the paper and trace (using a dark blue pen so that the lines won't be very visible when I finish) the outline.
Last night I did the tracing for all 90 invitations. Tonight, I'll be getting started with the cutting. You can see that I already did the cutting for one of the invitations just to make sure it still looked right. If the cutting doesn't take the whole night, I will get started on the folding as well. The folding is what is going to take a long time. I'll have to measure each of the invitations to figure out where to fold... very time consuming. Luckily, I still have a ton of time left to get these done!
However, Jippy is already exhausted thinking about it:
He's such a cutie. :) [P.S. You can see the gold paper I found for the invites right beside/under Jippy's nose!]
