A look into Katelyn's DIY Wedding Invites l Personal

It is just a few more month until Katelyn ties the knot, less than 4 to be exact. A standard rule of thumb is sending out your invites about 4 months in advance. When I reminded Katelyn at the beginning of April that we needed to get on the ball with getting these done, I think she had a mini heart attack. :/ Sorry 
Many know that I am Katelyn's Wedding Photographer, but it has been such an honor to also help with the planning side of her wedding as well. Most of her wedding is rustic plus DIY. She sent me a few ideas on place settings, cakes, and wedding invites. I want her to have the wedding of her dreams, so in that sense I took on helping her design and put together her wedding invites.
She bought most things from Michael's (brown paper, ivory paper, peel and stick pearls). The ivory ribbon came from Hobby Lobby. And the Lace is what I had left over from a wedding photo booth (thanks Shannon and Travis :) ), but it was also from Hobby Lobby I bought it in 2012.

 First task was to cut the invites so they would fit onto the ivory paper.
 Then to cut the lace so it could be glued on the back side.
Next task was making a bow around the lace, which Katelyn will tell you it is a lot harder than it looks.

 These self adhesive pearls went in the middle of the bow, but we also hot glued them down to be on the safe side.
