From this paper- 100 sheets of each color- I made our invitations, reply cards and envelopes, as well as wraps for our biodegradable utensils, signs for the Candy Buffet, Reserved signs for the chairs, AND our programs. I did not waste a BIT of this paper! For that I am pretty proud!!!
$161.97 for 1000 of each. I kept 200 of each for the wedding and sold the rest. So in the end I spent about on $35 the utensils.
The paper for the wraps were left over from the paper I'd used for our invites, so that didn't cost me anything extra.
The twine we used, we actually got for free at the grocery story in the meat department. We were looking for some to buy and they guy behind the counter just gave us a huge roll of it for free. SCORE! ?
The napkins were $3 for 100 at Party City, and I got 2 packs, so $6. This project cost me about $40.
