I am finally finished with my sister''s shower invites, enclosures, and favors!

I am mostly happy with how they turned out (the perfectionist in me will never be totally satisfied!
)

Anyway, the theme is Mad Hatter Tea Party.

I took the pictures on a dark day so I had to brighten them which makes them a little too bright, but pretty true to color.

Here we go.....

Of course the envelops had to say "open me" on the back...

And here is the map/directions insert that is sealed with "follow me"

Those are the nicest shower invitations I have ever seen!!!
Is the bride's name indicated on there somewhere? Just want to be sure they know who it is for!

(ETA: I now see there is an enclosure..it must be on there.)

I was happy with how the colors matched well (or close enough) the decorative paper on the invites was from Michael''s, the paper for the directions was from Paper-Source and matched the blue from the decorative paper. Then I had to test a lot of different colors on the printer to make the labels and teabag tag. The envelopes were from a random online store and luckily matched, because Paper-Source envelopes were much more expensive.

Thanks Diamond Seeker!
Yes I blurred her name out for privacy or internet safety or whatever!

One of the favors (still need to think of another one). They are just tea bags...

Thanks everyone, I really enjoy doing things like this, so it was fun.

Diamondseeker- Ha ha! No way would I try to sell these, too much work! Although I do enjoy being crafty. Plus it would be more difficult if I knew I had a customer to please, because I''d want everything to be perfect!

Claritek- Thanks, I''ll definitely add it to the DIY thread!

Def, Maybe- Thanks, I actually copied the idea off of something similar I saw on Etsy. I thought tea bags although not a very glamerous favor, fit perfectly with the theme.

Kittybean- Thanks, I hope everyone likes them. Even my sister won''t see them until they come in the mail. I hope they get everyone excited for the party!

Dboatsupreme- Thanks for the compliment. I consider myself a somewhat creative person, but I think my real talent is "borrowing" ideas that I''ve seen other places. I did a lot of research and took ideas from here and there.

Modern Sparkler- Thanks. Yes it was a lot of work! The surprising part was that the most work or most time-consuming part was researching ideas, going to stores for materials, making decisions and dealing with things that go wrong. The actual assembly took me about 2-3 evenings. But I enjoy doing things like this so it was fun.

Ice-queen- Thanks. I hope I''m not overdoing it but I like all the extra little touches!

Emerald Lover- Thanks for the compliment!
 

Definitely. Maybe

I goes perfectly with the theme. I don''t think it has to be glamorous... then again I know nothing about tea.
At least you made it the brides favorite kind. I probably wouldn''t have thought of that!
