Do You Still Have a Pile of Wedding Invites......Like ME?

Okay, I will admit it, I may have a problem with throwing stuff away. It can be a problem round these parts since my husband comes from a clutter free family of non savers. His parents house is free of all knic knacks, makes for really easy dusting that is for sure. Now I come from generations of savers. My dad is from Eastern Tennessee and you know, they build giant garages on the property to save great granma's stuff. So what I am saying is I have at least 50 leftover invites from my wedding that was ummmmmmmmm 10 years ago and I refuse to throw them in a trash bin. Sooooo what's a girl to do? Come on you already know the answer....craft with them!
I have a simple tutorial on how I made this right over HERE. I have it hanging on my bedroom wall, now what to do with the remaining 49.

This Sunday, July 11, I will be teaching at Paper Tales! We will be making this amazing photo tray. I hope you will join me! 1pm - 4 pm all levels of crafters are welcome and you will get 10% off of all of your purchases the day of the class, beleive me, you will love this beautiful store. Call to reserve your spot. 619.222.2510

Great use of your leftover invitation. You do have an issue with the remaining 49.

Good luck teaching your class. Sounds fun.

This is really fab, Smantha. I don't have the invites (they're printed on vellum), but the paper I used for the backing is still haunting me 11 years later. I feel bad about throwing it away. :P
