My Mom and I spent this past weekend making the boarding pass invites. I wanted to share with everyone how we made them. I know there are new brides out there that are interested in making the BP invites but donâ€t have a clue just like I didnâ€t when I first started! I kept going back and forth. I knew I REALLY wanted the BP invites but felt there was no way I could possibly make them. Iâ€m not creative nor am I good with computer stuff = )

 

I canâ€t remember where I got the template so I canâ€t thank them = ( but I can thank Carly! I got ideas off of her on where to get the paper and the overall picture. Thanks!

 

Iâ€m going to break it down into steps.

 

1.) I will attach the template I used.

 

2.) I got all of my paper from paperpresentation.com

I used the Crest- Natural Light 8.5 X 11 Cover 80lb. for the boarding passes.

I used the Stardream Mars 8.5 x 11 Text 32 lb. for the ticket envelope that is reddish, pinkish.

I used the Stardream Starburst #10 envelopes for the outside envelopes.

For the RSVP envelope I bought No. 6 ¾ envelopes from Office Max.

Since I perforated the BPasses, guests can tear off both sides of the RSVP invite and the middle part with the RSVP info. will fit perfectly in the No. 6 ¾ envelopes. I really wanted to do the postcard idea for the RSVP but couldnâ€t figure it out LOL Told you I am not savvy at this stuff. I think what I did will be fine.

I think I spent about $80 on paper and envelopes.

 

3.) Printing:

I saved my BP on my flash drive and went to Fed Ex Kinkos to have them printed on my cardstock paper. It was 49 cents a page.

I spent about $35 on printing.

 

4.) Tools I used for cutting & perforating:

I bought a cutting and perforating system all-in-one from Michaels. It was on sale for $20.

I first perforated all of the paper where the dotted lines are. Then I cut the passes apart from each other. Then, I used a small pair of scissors to cut the little notches out. I used my Momâ€s corner cutter for the round corners. If you donâ€t have one they sale them at Michaels.

 

I bought raffia ribbon from Hobby Lobby for about $2

 

All in all I spent about $140 and made 65 invites so that equals about $2.15 an invite. It took about 8 hours to make 65 invites. Not too bad. I had my Mom come visit me to help me conquer these. I live away from family and friends but if you have BMâ€s nearby have them help you!

Hope this helps someone out there = ) Again, thanks to everyone else that shared their boarding pass invites so that I could create mine!

Your boarding passes look great! You really did a great job! These are what I am looking to get started on next since we just finally got a date set at Dreams Tulum. I am not sure if I don't have enough points or what but I can't open the template you attached on there?? Would you be able to send it to my personal email at niels408@regis.edu? Also, any pointers you have on making these would be great!

 

Thanks ahead of time!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
