Think Inside The Box/Real Party Invite Sneak Peek

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I'm a fan of clever invites, and to me, the ultimate ones are those you can't slap up on a fridge, i.e. in a box. Yes, if you can't hand-deliver, the postage can be a bear. But you know they won't be easily misplaced, and oh, the possibilities!
