I’m excited to introduce you to an old friend of mine. Jen and I were in the same sorority in college and I’ve been following along and keeping up with her family through her darling blog. The other day I spotted this ADORABLE handmade invitation she created for her son’s upcoming birthday and I asked her if she would come over to Giggles Galore and share it with all of you. Take it away Jen….
We started by first making our marks and drawing our lines for cutting. Each invitation was cut long ways and then folded in half to start the bottom part of the “pocket.” Since our goal was to make the invitation look like a boarding pass that sat inside of a pocket.
I wanted them to be “true” pockets/slits so I used my exacto knife to slice (at an angle) only the middle part of the paper from side to side. The marks you see below are on the inside of the invitation so you wouldn’t be able to see them once they are folded.
They are just big enough for the invitation, rsvp and fun facts to fit because the sides would be glued closed.
