    copy the dimensions onto a sheet of paper so you can see?


    also make sure you can envelopes to fit themimage

    What shape invitation do you want? Square? Rectangle? And what style? Pocketfold, simple card?

    me too image quite possibly the most boring mistake ive made so far

  • We bought a4 card and cut it in half to make them and then folded them in half again to make it a6 then we just got a6 envelopes and they all fitted fine image xx

    I am making my envelopes, even though my invites are a standard size - just because I am anal retentive and want the paper used for the envelope to match the insides. I managed to get pre-cut and folded templates, I just have to glue them. Fingers crossed that it works OK - otherwise, I'll be buying more (non-matching!) envelopes!!

  • Thanks guys, it says a6 so I've gone ahead and ordered them image
