DIY Friday: Brunch invitations!

{Please excuse my poor Photoshopping skills!}

Cousin getting married + extended family traveling to my new hometown = the perfect opportunity for entertaining! We've settled on hosting a brunch for the morning of the wedding, and these are the invitations I sent out. Stay tuned for many more planning details coming up next week in addition to a few last-minute apartment improvement projects (yay!).

DIY Details:

1. Establish the size of your envelope, then layout a design in the style and graphic program of your choice. I used Microsoft Publisher. If you like the look of my type, try selecting the "distribute all lines" alignment option.

2. Print and cut.

3. For extra pizzazz, I added fabric to the back of the invites with the scraps left over from this project. If you'd like to do this, too, lay out two invites at a time on newsprint and spray them with 3M Super 77 Multipurpose Adhesive (DO THIS OUTSIDE!!). Quickly smooth the paper onto the fabric and let the glue dry for a few minutes. Carefully cut around the edges of the invitation.

P.S. If you're a member of my family and think you should be getting an invite after reading this post but haven't received one yet, don't worry! I only sent them out on Wednesday, so rest assured it is in the mail. And I apologize for ruining the surprise. :)
