    We finally got our boarding pass invites out last weekend. They were a huge hit with all our guests. I believe we started with the template off the knot website that someone posted awhile back. Thanks to everyone on here for all the information and great photos that helped soo much!

    ALL THE PICS ARE HERE:

    TEMPLATE WITH ALL FONTS AND IMAGES(in 1 zipfile):
    http://www.jdmautomo....130_invite.zip

    SUPPLIES
    • Ticket Jacket Paper = program paper, 50 to a pack, made by gartner studios from michaels, used 2 packs, $9.99 per pack
    • These have a silver outline on the one flap,I put this on the inside flap and could not see it, they already had prefolded edges which made them look much nicer than folding cardstock.
    • Ribbon for bows - michaels, 99ยข a roll , used 9 rolls
    • Brown Envelopes - Target Clearance Item, these were baby announcements. The brown ended up matching the brown on the ticket jacket. 1.99 on clearance for pack of 12. Saved the actual announcement card for baby in the future(hopefully its a boy)!
    • Glue Sticks to hold inner ticket flap down. $1.00
    • Boarding Pass Tickets = 80# card stock, cut with friskars 12" cutter, michaels, on sale with coupon.
    • Printed all at home on a minolta laser printer
    • Fonts: Avalon, Arabella, Spyrosclassic

    We made 90 of the invites, it took a few nights to do all of the graphics work on the computer. The map of mexico/cabo took some time to get all of the colors to match. I think it all turned out really nice. Hopefully everyone here agrees as well. We have had so many compliments from family and friends.
