Invitation making G2G?

Ok ladies, I am really completely overwhelmed by these pocketfolds! I wish I hadn't bought them in the first place, but the paper cost a bit so I can't turn back now. Would anyone be up for a G2G at my house to help me with my invitations? I can provide food and wine (or other alcohol if you guys want!) and other entertainment. I just can't get motivated to do all 150 of these by myself!
It looks like I will be open the weekend of June 25th/26th. Would anyone else be available and interested? I would be forever in your debt!

    I would love to help!  But I'm pretty bad at crafts.  My DIY invitation attempts were really pitiful.  But if you are willing to take a chance on me, I am in.

    Anglea, I did my pocket folds. Although every pocketfold invite is different I would love to help if you need it. The OMHs have book club on the 25th but I could come after or the next day. Facebook me and let me know.

    Yay I love y'all!
    Stephie- I think I'll try to set it up as an assembly line with one person doing the straight cuts with a paper cutter and another person doing the smaller cuts, and then someone folding and someone taping (assuming I get that much help of course!). I'm sure you'd do great at one of those! Do you have nice handwriting? My cousin was supposed to do the calligraphy so I think I'll have to just pay someone to do it. It's a lot to ask someone to do.

    Rene- I was thinking after the book club, but that might be too much in one day for some of y'all. If there's a lot of OMHs wanting to help, I would do Sunday. Here is the one I'm wanting to do:

    Angela, have you considered having someone like Kinko's or Officemax cut it for you?  That is the part that is the hardest I think (and the one I will be the absolute worst at).

    Yes, but I already ordered it cut down to the smallest I could. The rest of the cuts are detailed, unfortunately. Would you want to tape? :)

    ETA: Here is the template for it: http://www.lcipaper.com/blog/make-your-own-pocketfold-part-1.html
    I basically need the pocket part cut out of the bottom, then it gets scored, folded, and taped together. Do those places do cuts like that?

    I can come help on the 25th. It will get me out of an engagement party for someone that I have no desire to attend. The 26th is out though cause I will be at the New Kids concert.

    I'm not so good with the advice... Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

    After the book club on the 25th wouldn't be too much for me.

    That will be my first weekend at Disney so I can't.  I'm sad because I'd totally help out otherwise.

    If it's not a super crafty project I'd be glad to help as long as I don't have anything that day.Also, I can borrow a cutting board from work for the straight cut so more than one can be done at a time if you want (as long as I can find it, and it's in working order)

    Crash- I would love to borrow your cutting board! Is that like the big heavy duty cutters that Amanda has at her school?
