ENVELOPE SOLUTION FOR LAW FIRM INVITES

The invitations for the law firm (PREVIOUS POST) are completed and delivered !!! WOOHOO !!!

A HUGE thanks to all of you who left comments and e-mails to solve my envelope dilemma!!!! (The dilemma was to find an attractive, mailable solution for these 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" Triangle Tri-Fold Invitations). I knew I could count on my creative readers to help me out with this one ... all the ideas were great! Ultimately, MAGGI's suggestion is the one that suited my needs for this invitation the best. Thanks, Maggi!!!!This is what I did: I took 1" x 4 1/4" Basic Black CS strips, rounded one corner, added Sticky Strip to each side, and adhered inside at each end of the rectangular 5 3/4" x 4 3/8" envelope. The strips of CS act as spacers so the invitation doesn't float around the envelope. I found this to be the fastest and most attractive solution.

Fantastic idea! I've done one extra piece and punched out a shape in the envelope but to mail them, may not be a good idea...they rip easily...LOL

Fabulous idea for the envelopes. I've been wanting to send this size card but was so dissatisfied sending in an oversize envelope. Thanks for passing along the tip.

These invitations are exquisite! Simple elegance...my favorite style! Simply gorgeous!

Wow, how gorgeous. Whever I do something with black it comes out looking gothic - but yours is gorgeous. Beautiful job. And, thank you for the kind words of encouragement on my blog - lost another 3.4 pounds this week - yes we count every ounce.
