We ordered the brown paper, envelopes and twine online from Amazon and booked in an evening after work to sit down in RBJ’s office together and design and print them.

The bit that we perhaps didn’t quite anticipate however was just how long it would take threading the twine and tying the knots. But a few bottles of wine and a Byron burger later, and the last one was finished! Here is a sneak peak at the final product:
We have had so many lovely comments from friends and family about them. Which makes the effort all the more worth while! Now we just need to figure out what we are doing for the actual invites… ideas anyone?
