Our jaws totally dropped when we saw Jodi and Kurt‘s wedding invitations. Seriously, these may be the most uniquely awesome and labor-intensive invitations we have ever seen! And as such, they deserve their very own post! Here are some of the details from Jodi:

Handmade Wedding Invitations with Burlap

“I knew once we got engaged that I wanted something new and creative for our wedding invitations, something that hasn’t been done before, but also something to reflect the style of our wedding and allow our guests to have a ‘sneak peek’ into the actual day.  We wanted our invites to be personal and completely handmade and really give our guests something special.”

“We constructed our invitations out of thick board, burlap, twine, and these cute cameos we purchased from PoppyLovesParis on Etsy. Each guest received a different cameo, which will also make another appearance at our wedding in another fun detail.”

“We glued blue envelopes, purchased from the Paper Source, on the inside of the invitation.  I cut off the flaps of the envelopes then glued strips of doilies on the inside as an extra detail.”

“Our inserts were somewhat of a trial, as I had them printed and then coffee-stained, but they unfortunately didn’t turn out how I envisioned, so the inserts were printed on cream paper purchased from the Paper Source.  A special thanks goes out to my friend, Bee, for helping with the wording.”

“We had Kurt’s brother-in-law, Chris, design our map.”

“We found these kraft mailers that fit our invites perfectly! The labels were made out of vellum paper and then transformed into a sticker using a Xyron machine.  I then used a Martha Stewart edger punch (love her crafts!) to add a little embellishment on each of the addresses.”

As if these crazy beautiful handmade invites were not enough, Jodi and Kurt also included a DVD with an awesome stop-motion film that they created themselves! It ties in their adorable pie-themed RSVP card.

What kind of board did you use? I imagine it would have to be thick but thin enough to fold.
