been making some invitations tonight... dad is turning 60 and we're throwing him a birthday party!

so, anyway, here is the "template" i found online. these cards sell for $225 for 25. WOW!

i made my own version of it using CorelDraw. i printed both the large card and the smaller tag on cardstock, punched half-holes in the sides of the large card, small holes in the tag, then used the corner rounder on ALL of it. i used gold jewelry string (had some at home but it is pretty cheap), and what took the longest was threading the tag and tying it to the card! i also used one of the small dimensionals behind the tag. this helped with the tying part.

so anyway, here is MY version (which probably cost about $5 for 30, not including the ink, which i did try to minimize the wasting of it as i printed using the "fast normal" quality print).

what do you think?


  1. You know you're going to have to give up your amateur status now, don't you?! ;) Very professional job, looks just enough like the original that I'd say you could also charge more for your handi-/artwork...

  2. Really looking forward to seeing what you design for the reunion!
