Remember the star wands...?

They are part of the invitations to McKenzie's party, 
which started out looking like this:

Then after my sweet hubby wasted the 10th piece of cardstock... we decided it would take months and a cart load of cardstock to make all 30+ boxes this way. 
So we instead purchased a few white 'gift boxes' and gave that a go. 
They were cute. But money is tight. So we searched for yet another way to give the invites out.
So the final product for many of the guests went out as this:

Paper source was my inspiration here. 
But, buying their envelopes that are done this way, would have been as expensive as the boxes..or more.  
I just folded a piece of cardstock in half, cut it down to slightly larger than my invitation
glued the bottom and the one unfolded side 
cut a half moon shape and VIOLA!  
To mail, I just wrapped them in kraft paper and sent them on their way.

......Not as great as a box...but you gotta do what you gotta do.
