Presenting the first batch of 20 envelopes, another 130-140 more to go. I'm sure it will be much faster when woodblock and my aunt steps in to help me with the tedious repetitive job =) so i won't get stuck so long just on one DIY project.
Perhaps I should get a kickstart with the card design by engaging Ah li's help soon =)
Let me see total costing for the envelopes(let's take it as 150 of them): (3x$2.50) +(2x$4.10) = $15.70 (hmm not bad)
Cost per envelope (well we are always into averaging right lol) = $0.1047 (hmm not bad at least it is cheaper than popular bookshop ones haha)
Now even thought some might say wy so stupid isn't Grand Shanghai going to provide u withthe cards? Well yup it's free but the only catch is that we need to print the inserts ourselves which cost slightly more than $100. So if I can reproduce DIY envelopes+ cards at around same price or so why not make it a personalise one for my guests?
Ok i need to meet woodblock and his colleagues for dinner at cafe swiss =) heard its a 1-1 buffet so gonna look forward to it !!!
Brids who are DIYing your own doily envelopes , do send me your photos of your work because I am really interested in the variation of the doily envelopes with locally sold doilies too!!!
