DIY Project - Pocketfold Invitation





I am super dooper excited, finally I am able to start with my DIY projects, hours of browsing the internet and trying to find the materials needed Ive finally made several... yes! you read it right several mock ups of our invitation.



I really wanted to have a pocketfold for an invite. I could save the trouble by just ordering it online or in one of the shops in Manila I could even have it letter pressed but then I saw a lot of sites offering free download of templates and I know I could make the pocket fold easy peasy lemon squezy hahahah

There's this cool website which I love, most of my mock up invites came from it. Printable Invitation Kits its 100% free and they could also customized the design according to your wedding colors for a minimal free.


Burgundy Floral Border Wedding Invitation

Birdie Couple Free Wedding Invitation

Butterflies Wedding Invitation Template

I also made a main invite from word document


It's kinda easy once you get the hang of it, you just need to invest some time creating your template



Main Invite  5"X7"
Inserts       5" X 7.5" ; 5" X 7" ; 5" X 6.5" ; 5" X 6" ;  5" X 5.5";  5" X 5"

I don't know how to attach the template here, if you are interested I am more than willing to share the template just leave your email in the comment area :-)

In the middle of my DIY project I decided to make a new monogram, my sister and jowaness wanted the birds invite but then it does not match into the theme of the invitation. I know I did include it because I find it super cute but then we are not in our twenties, I did not expect that they would love it :-) 

I love Printable Invitation Kits, I was able to create a monogram that has birds and hearts!! Yeah!!!



I used it for tag in our ribbon.

 
I was able to take some photos, hoping I could share with you how you could make your own pocket fold invitation, would update this post when I've finished with my invitation :-)

As of now, I still have not decided what main invite we are going to use :-(

Warning to all DIY brides, you would use a lot of paper. Seeing the invite in your screen does not give it justice, you have to print it using the paper that you want to use for your invitation, I've changed my invite paper 3 times, so just prepare yourself.

It could be frustrating but trust me one could go print crazy .. been there 

Again, what matters is that you enjoy the journey.

Pocketfold Invite TUTORIAL

OK!! I know I said that I would post here the step by step directions on how I was able to make my invitations.

Here is the site that I stumbled upon that gave me the inspiration to do the 1st mock up



It was not bad, but it just did not give me the THIS IS IT!! feeling. I made some adjustments to the measurement still following the instructions here and KABOOM, I was able to produce a main invite courtesy of  Printable Invitation Kits and inserts by following the tutorial below

THE INVITES AND INSERTS
source : Elle_Neotoma's Pocketfold Invite TUTORIAL

(edited to suit my templates)

I created these using Microsoft Word and my printer.  The paper was 8.5x11 110# text and cover in white from Office Max.  As for the internal margins, you can change them to suit yourself.
REMEMBER TO PROOF AND EDIT, AND DO A TEST PRINT OF ALL THE DOCUMENTS.
MAKE ANY NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS.

FONTS I USED:
Edwarian Script (Cursive looking font)
Tempus Sans ITC (regular font)

Inserts
Entourage :          5" X 7.5" &  5" X 7"  
Map :                    5" X 6.5" 
Information:        5" X 6"   
RSVP:                  5" X 5.5"  
Others                  5" X 5"
  1. Create a new document and set the page to landscape
  2. Change the margins to the smallest you can (mine was 0.2 for right and left, 0.5 for top and bottom)
  3. Insert a text box and set the wrapping to “In line with text”
  4. Set the size to height 7.5" and width 5”
  5. Set the internal margins inside the text box to left 0.2, right 0.5, top 0.5, and bottom 0.1 
  6. Set the line color of the text box to a very light gray or to any color that you want I did mine in red.
  7. Line = the box outlining the textbox, don’t color the interior 
  8. Type your info and insert any clip art that you want
Follow the first three steps same as the 1st entourage card
set the height 7", width 5", internal margins 0.3 right, left, top and bottom
Copy and paste Insert 1 to make Insert 2 (all 2 inserts should fit one page) Type your info
Print and cut

Page 2
Copy and paste Insert 2 to make Insert 3 
Insert 3: set the height 6.5" , width 5", internal margins 0.2 left and right, 0.1 top and bottom
Copy and paste Insert 3 to make Insert 4
Insert 4: set the height 6", width 5", internal margins 0.2 left and right, 0.1 top and bottom
Type your info
Print and cut
Page 3
Copy and paste Insert 4 to make Insert 5 
Insert 5: set the height 5.5", width 5", internal margins 0.2 left and right, 0.1 top and bottom
Copy and paste Insert 5 to make Insert 6
Insert 6: set the height 5" , width 5" , internal margins 0.2 left and right, 0.1 top and bottom
Type your info
Print and cut
And finally after so many mock ups may I present to you our FINAL invitations for our Filipino Guests :-)
