JAMES + CARA





I've just finished making wedding invitations for my good friends James and Caramay. We based the design around these round boxes and I used a 3inch circle punch to cut out all of the circles. I printed the "invitation side" on a thick paper stock and the "photo side" on sticker sheets. I tacked on the invitation side to the ribbon lining it all up and then I peeled off the sticker side and attached it to the back of the invitation.




Each invite has 7 circles on a ribbon which can be hung on a hook or attached to a fridge. I think my poor fingers need a bit of a rest from putting them all together! I must say, I love the little teepee illustration we came up with.



In other news, I bought my first set of watercolours and I can't wait to try them this weekend! Eeee. 

Hi guys, since posting this I have had quite a few inquires about this invitation. Unfortunately, due to the time consuming nature of this project – and difficulty of sourcing round boxes – this was a one-off. However, if you would like invites like this (minus the box) or any other custom invitation, feel free to email me at tori.veysey@gmail.com. Thanks :)

  4. These are adorable! I do have a few questions for you, though. First, where did you find the round boxes? Second, how did you ship these and was it extremely expensive to do so? Thanks! You're so creative!

  5. I would like to ask the same questions....where did you find the boxes, how did you ship them and where do you purchase the sticky papers?

  6. Hi guys,

    The round boxes were from spotlight but you can also get them from amazon. I had nothing to do with the postage. The printhouse had the sticker paper but I'm sure most stationery stores would sell it.

  18. This was an amazing idea that I had to borrow from you for my own wedding I painted the boxes black (black and white wedding) and hot glued a red rose on the top of the lid and used red ribbon to attach the circles they looked beautiful they were a huge hit thank you

  52. app utvikling

    I 2011 startet jeg å lage min første app: Job Interview app. En iPhone/iPad app som jobbsøkere kan øve på jobb intervju. Jeg fikk laget over 100 video snutter som ble lagt inn i appen. Videosnutter med spørsmål, svar og forslag til hvordan besvare spørsmålene. Når man har sett videoene kan man ta opp seg selv og se hvordan man svarer. Dette var min første app og etter lansering ble det en stor fiasko. Men jeg nektet å gi opp. Jeg forbedret grafikken, endret funksjonalitet, la inn sjekk lister, quiz, flip cards og masse mer. Nedlastningene er nå vel over fem sifret. website: www.appsonite.no
