My DIY Save The Date Cards

These are just a few of our Save the Date cards. It started off with me just making a bunch of samples to have printed at Walgreens to see how they would come out. All I did was make a collage of the two pics, then added the wording. I made them so that 2 STD cards would print onto one 4" x 6" print. I would then cut them in half and glue a magnet on the back (haven't done that yet). I made so many different samples, that all together they were all I needed for all of my guests. So I thought, what the heck? I may as well just use all the different samples I had. Who says they all have to be the same? So that is what I will do.
Anyways, they came out great! I had them printed for .10 for each 4" x 6"print. Picked them up, so no shipping. For 50 Save the Dates it ended up costing $2.50. Magnets were $0.95 each pkg. from I bought 2 which was more than enough for my project. So $4.40 total to make 50 Save the Dates.
Still need envelopes, but I will be looking at thrift stores for a bulk of envelopes. I've seen them there before.....or maybe even make my own. I smell a new project?
