Graduation Invitations

Today mom decided to tackle the job of making Joe's graduation invitations. So she grabbed every one that was at home and set them up in a very efficient assembly line.
-Mom printed them out, cut the paper and oversaw the whole process-
-Stephen was our official ribbon cutter-

Phillip marked the holes and I punched them out, he got slightly bored because instead of neat little marks (like at the beginning) they suddenly became, smiles, letters, circles...anything but small dots...to keep it interesting: )
After John threaded the ribbon, Esther would "perfect it" making sure the ribbon was the appropriate length, and nothing was amiss....so if you get a defected invitation you know whose fault it really was. *smile* (She did a great job!)

When we were finished Phillip remarked, "if I have to help with my own invitations, I am just going to send out an e-mail inviting people."

You will have to wait till you get one in the mail to see the finished product!

They are red...the black and white picture turned the vellum white instead of red.
