Easy Elegant Invite

I mentioned last time that I was planning for Sophia's baptism and party.

Of course with something this important, invitations are in order.

I didn't want to spend too much, but I also wanted something unique and elegant. And so I came up with this solution that I wanted to share.

Invites I ordered
 First, I ordered from one of the most affordable printing websites - VISTAPRINT.

The invitation was $9.00/10, still too expensive for me, but after a 40% coupon and free shipping, I ended up paying about 30 cents per invite.

I then had my husband print these at home....

We used velum paper ordered from Amazon for $7.71

And after punching a few holes, and 1 roll of a 97 cents white ribbon from Walmart, 
here is the finished product!

Our easy and elegant invite!

All in all I spent less than $50 for a 100 invites ( No, I'm not sending it all)!
I already distributed this to our friends and family and almost everyone complimented the beautiful invite and of course, confirmed their attendance on this big day for our daughter's life!

Hope you all have a Great Week!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...
