Very cute and original idea. Where did you get the jump drives from?

Monica, I got the flash drives from iPromo. Their website is ipromo.com. They were standard yellow bracelet drives with the Police Line imprint that I supplied. Everyone LOVED them!!

This is so creative! Where did you order the cake from? The fondant is applied so smoothly and is very crisp..which is not the case with some bakeries. I live in northern nj, so I'm sure I can order a cake from ny- I'm turning sixteen in September :D

Skyla... sorry to get back to you so late. I made the cake myself! Duan.... I also made the invites myself. They took a LONG TIME to put together. I designed them and had the paper parts printed, and ordered the black light flashlights. I baked the cookies, made the ribbons, etc -- and assembled everything myself.

I love this idea it is so different! I was wondering if you had the centerpieces made or if you made them also and if so how did you make them. Thank you

Debra... Thanks so much. I made the centerpieces myself. Here's how I did it: I bought the vases from Michaels and then bought chalk board vinyl online. I think I bought it from either Specialty-Graphics or Sign Warehouse. It's a very thick vinyl - as opposed to a standard Oracal 631 or other wall vinyl. I found the images I wanted to use and vectorized them so I could cut them with my vinyl cutter. If you have a Cricut and have either Sure Cuts a Lot or Make The Cut, you can use that, too. I measured where I wanted the lettering/icon to be and set up my screen to cut. I used the chalk board vinyl because it was much less likely to get air bubbles because of it's thickness, and was easier to wrap around the vase. I then wrapped the inside of the vase with coordinating tissue paper (depending on the icon I used) and added a light (push light or glow stick works fine). I hope that makes sense!! If you don't have access to a vinyl cutter, you can have someone cut the vinyl icons/lettering for you, apply them on the vase, then spray paint the rest black. When dry, peel away the vinyl and you'll have a clear icon/lettering. Then just add your tissue paper and light and you're good to go.

Centerpiece1_thumb how did you do your center pieces or where did you get them?

Invite2_thumb I made the invitations myself. I ordered the envelopments (black outer pocket envelopes) and designed the rsvp card and invite panel. I uploaded both the rsvp card and invite panel to a photo site and had them printed because I didn't want to do them on my inkjet or laser printers.

Centerpiece1_thumb I made them myself. I bought pillar candle vases (straight sided) at Michaels. I used a vinyl cutter (similar to a Cricut) to cut out the vector image in black chalkboard vinyl. (Chalkboard vinyl is thicker than regular vinyl and will yield less air bubbles when affixing to the glass). I then added colored tissue paper to the inside and a push light to illuminate it. If a vinyl cutter is unavailable, you can order vinyl decals on Etsy. Affix those to the vase, spray the vase with black paint, and then peel off the vinyl decal. Add the tissue paper and light.

Sorry for the delay in responding... Chantiay -- I uploaded the jpg invite to mpix.com and had them printed. The postcard rsvp cards were done by vistaprint.com Savanah - I got the blacklights online from amazon.com. They're little blacklight caribiner keychain. I don't see them listed anymore, but it's a blacklight, laser pointer and flashlight all-in-one. I'm sure you can find them in bulk online. The boxes were bought from nashvillewraps.com, I believe. I'd have to look that one up, but that's usually where I get my boxes.

Hi Lisa, I was just wondering for the r.s.v.p. cards did you designed them on vistaprint or did you attach a picture? im having trouble trying to find something similar to your idea. Also for the boxes what type of boxes did you use? i would like to use the same ones you used.
