Nate's DIY Birthday Invitation

 Well, it's sort of a DIY but I needed help from a friend to layout the invitation, we just worked on the envelopes for Nate's upcoming birthday and dedication on May 9th. As usual, thanks to the very kind Google for all the ideas we got for his football themed event. His name is Amante, he's a great guy and he's been helping us with layouts ever since. He's helped us layout our wedding invitation before, and now he's helped us with Nate's invitation. :) Here's his finish work - he's such a bright kid!

Dane wanted Nate's invitation to be like a ticket, and I think Amante did a great job! (Half left is the back page and half right is the front page. 
This is how Amante designed the program. It's more than what I expected. 
I'm so thankful that we can get help from him when it comes with photo layouts. I'm sure we'll ask for his help again in the future (namimihasa lang? haha). Amante, if you're reading this, thank you so much! :) Sana i-bless pa ni Lord and talent mo at i-enhance pa lalo. ;)

Now for our part of the project - the envelopes. I had Dane buy an envelope in the bookstore so we customize Nate's invitation envelope and he bought me a plain white envelope - it was perfect. So what I did was I printed little footballs and pasted them inside the envelope and I used the remaining balls from the giveaway bags and used them as the invitation's seal. This is an easy-peasy.

1. Have the envelopes and the printed design ready to use to add design on the envelope
2. Cut out a pattern for your design. Cut the designs according to the pattern and paste them on the envelopes
3. This is how it should look. :)
4. Paste the ball on the envelope cover and use later as a seal when everything's ready. Print the program put inside the readied envelopes
5. And here's Nate's invitation ready for distribution :)
