I finally got some down time this weekend to work on the ‘save-the-date’ for my husbands 30th birthday.  It might seem a little like overkill to do a save the date for a birthday party, but with all of our friends going through the same milestone birthday in one year, plus the date falling within wedding season, I thought it necessary.

I did all of the wording in photoshop and then just printed onto #5 sized manila shipping tags.  The awesome part about this is that the shipping tags can send out just as they are as postcards – no envelope required!  This helps to keep the concept casual, and saves me on envelope and shipping costs, something I like!

Aside from the little invites, I managed to finally get some landscaping done (matt doing 80% of the work) that I’ve been talking about for the past few weekends.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to show you guys some progress to the house exterior soon!

I hope your week has started out wonderfully and stays quick and productive!  Next weekend is a long one, so that is certainly something to celebrate!

Have an BLESSED Monday!


p.s. We have some awesome posts lined up for this week!  A mystery project I’ve been working on with another DIY blogger up tomorrow and then a really stunning ‘Details With’ for Wednesday!

  • Erin, these look fantastic! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us this week…

  • such a cute idea!! xx

  • SO cute! This is a great idea!

  • These are so cute! You did a great job with the design, and I love that they can be postcards … what a fun thing to get in the mail!

  • I love these tags!!! They’re adorable. Can I ask you, what font did you use for “thirtieth”?

    • Hi Brittany – It is Currency. I used the same on the word ‘saturday’ too, but for the word thirteeth I did the regular font at 300% height.

  • These are beautiful! Matt is one lucky man!

  • This is such a pretty idea! I like coming here for inspiration 🙂

  • So cute!

  • What a lovely idea! They turned out so well! I am currently designing my wedding invites and it’s been so much fun! Nice work!

  • Love them. You have THE best taste in fonts!

  • Love your little blog! Good thinking on the save-the-dates… Especially in the summer months, I feel like it’s so hard to tie people down for an event!

  • How did you get the tags printed? Home printer? I’m wondering how you set this up in printer settings! I’m wanting to use this as my Save the Date for my wedding! This is a great idea!

    • Hi Sherri!
      What I did was print the wording on plain white computer paper first, then I taped the tag to the same exact spot (tape on the back). I ran that page back through the printer.
      If you get the extra large (#6) tags, I think they’ll go through a home printer on their own with the index card setting!
      Also- I got the tags just at an office supply (Here they are at Office Max)

  • These are amazing Erin! Nice work!!!

  • Also love the idea of printing with them taped to paper like you mentioned above!!

  • i think this is actually a really cool idea and it’s awesome that you can just send them in the mail! and i can’t believe you just printed them at home, they look so professionally done.

  • I have been feeling a little “over kill” about doing Save The Dates for my husbands 30th birthday party, but it is 4 days after Christmas, so I wanted to give people a heads up! This is a PERFECT way to save money and give people a quick shout out about the event! How awesome. Is there any way I can get you to send me the document to print these onto shipping labels? I’m not very good when it comes to photo shop etc.
