Put It On (Recycled) Paper

With the recent arrival of the wedding invitations, now the date seems even closer!! Here is a peek at the invitations and the guest book, all made out of handmade recycled paper.


We ordered our invitations from Twisted Limb Paperworks, a small studio in the heartland of America (Indiana) that makes their paper out of recycled office paper, junk mail, grocery bags, and grass cutting from their own fields. The paper used for the invitations is called Green Tea and the guest book is accented with Mango paper. Along with a signed thank you note, they also included a bookmark with the words from a famous Beatles song. What a coincidence, this song will be used in the wedding (not telling where yet)! That must be a sign of good luck. I was extremely happy with how the invites turned out and would highly recommend their services. And remember, after you've enjoyed the invitation on your refrigerator door (or wherever), be sure to recycle it!! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...

Hi Amanda. I discovered your blog yesterday while reading mcfarlanddesigns blog. Love your blog! And let me tell you, everything that you've posted about your wedding is beautiful. I love the jewelry that Tamara made for you, gorgeous, gorgeous!! And those invitations are soo beautiful too! I wish I had thought of that when I made my wedding invitations two years ago. Wishing you a beautiful wedding and much happiness.

Best Wishes,

Liza
