We are going to attempt to make our own Steampunk pocket invitations, menu cards, and programs. I am also planning to do some personalized wedding party flutes. Anyone else doing or done this?

    A lot of people do it. I have done it for some stuff. I would definitely practice before you commit it can be a learning curve. But it’s doable.

    Thank you for this tip!

    I have the Explore Air 2, and plan on DIYing alot of my decor for my wedding, but I find my circut so intimidating lol

    Last night I simply tried to address an envelope with it and ended in tears.

    I would definitely recommend just practicing on it for a WHILE, I've had mine since December (Christmas present from my mom who knew FH planned on proposing) and I still cry every time I try to use it lol

    Thanks so much for the info. I know this going to be a huge undertaking but I need to at least try before I throw in the towel, especially after ordering the machine...Smiley xd

    Rule of thumb practice on cheap products save your expensive products for the finished product. Dollar tree sells a ton of vinyl and shirts and stuff.

    In the facebook group, several people have mentioned about using the Cricut to address envelopes. If you have a printer, try that as it is so much easier. It does get easier the more you use the Cricut.

    That was my first thought. I was hoping I wouldn't be stuck spending hundreds on materials by having to only use their products. That would defeat my purpose. Thanks for the tip.

    I don't own a printer tho it is on my list of things I need to buy since moving Smiley cry

    The envelopes I got for my Save The Dates all came preaddressed with really pretty writing, but there were some last minute guests we added that I didn't have envelopes printed for so I figured it'd be easy to have the circuit write the addresses with a pen and it's turning out more difficult that I originally thought and driving me nuts! I'm just waiting for my request to join the FB group to be approved and hopefully I can find some tips!

    So that is what the pens are for. I joined yesterday. They added me like late last night or early this morning.

    That's good that you didn't have to address all of the envelopes yourself. You will definitely find good tips. People are really helpful in the group.
