Very nice! I'm planning to do something similar. Can you tell me how you attached/sealed the outside of the pocketfold with the small square? That's one of the pieces of the puzzle that I haven't put together yet. :)

I glued the white piece of paper onto the Sand piece. Then I glued it onto the flap of the pocketfold. That's it! I used a glue pen I bought from Michaels. I don't know the brand name off hand, but it's blue-colored glue and dries clear. I use it in scrapbooking all the time.

Very nice! If you don't mind me asking how many invites did you make and how long did it take you?

I made 100 invites.

I worked on them for probably a total of 2 days straight, spread out over a week. I did a lot in the evenings, and then took one day off work to work completely on them.

BUT, I had to re-glue things down because it was SO cold outside, my adhesive was coming off. TEST your adhesive before applying it to 100 invites is my advice :)
