The Invitations
I (Wendi) designed the invitations myself, chose the paper (and envelopes) and had it cut to size, printed the invitations on the laser printer, punched the holes and tied the ribbon, and managed to have 50+ invitations done for less than $25. The invitations were printed on white "Tairei" paper with silver flecks and a rubber-stamped silver trumpet, on silver foil paper, on deep red speckled paper, all tied together with silver ribbon.

I found the envelopes at the Paper Zone. They were "Holiday Envelopes" that came with red, silver, green or gold linings. I chose silver, since the shade of red did not exactly match the invitations' red.
