I put all of it together in a box with some tissue underneath.

Woohoo!

Cost

I’ve had inquiries on how much these invitations cost to make. Here’s the breakdown.


Invitation Item Source Cost per invite (inc. shipping)
Scroll indianweddingcard.com $3.02
Pocketfolds paper-source.com $0.41
Boxes ebay.com $0.42
Enclosure paper paperandmore.com $0.48
Tissue nashvillewraps.com (est. since tissue was used in favors too) $0.01
Ink Staples (estimation since ink was used to print other items) $0.53
Ribbon Michael’s (estimation since ribbon was used on other items) $0.11
Stamps (RSVP plus mailing) $2.44

Total
$7.41
Total (less shipping)
$4.89

The scrolls were the priciest part because of the shipping from India. Without shipping costs and international fees, the scrolls cost would have been $2.01 per invitation, totaling the cost of making the whole invitation to be $3.87 (not including shipping). Pocketfolds were also only $0.34 each if you don’t include paying for shipping, etc. Our shipping costs were in a different part of the "budget", but I added them here so you can see the TOTAL cost.

In the event you’re making pocketfolds, though, see how much you can save! Ordering plain, solid color A7 pockefolds from places like cardsandpockets.com or paperandmore will cost you about 95% MORE than it would cost you to spend the time making them. They are are labor of love though.
