    After taking a break from wedding planning due to finals and moving and what not... we jumped back into it this weekend and completed our boarding pass invites!

    A special thanks to all the wonderful ladies who have shared their ideas and templates. : ) I have taken bits and pieces from so many people and could never have done it on my own. They aren't as "professional" as some... but I like the, they fit the budget, and it is a great feeling to be able to say I did them.


    Anyways... just thought I would share. : )

    Everything pre-assembly (4 pages, pocket folder, envelope)

    How they look inside the pocket folder (love the palm tree punch idea... thanks to whoever that was borrowed from!)

    I have also attached our template.
    Fonts I used include: scriptina, Californian FB, hibiscus, wmtrees1 (all from dafont.com)

                Thanks. After seeing yours from Sarah, I was really disappointed I had already bought my supplies and had somewhat started them. Yours turned out so beautiful! I was actually so upset that mine would look horrible - that Sean told me to just go ahead and order them from her. But since we had already spent the money on supplies and really have no extra room in the budget ... I just decided to follow through with mine. They are no where near Sarah's... but I was pretty impressed with myself (totally not a DIY - type person).

                I just used a regular size piece of carstock and folded it into threes. I used a ruler to make the edges nice - but that was a total pain. I believe there is something you can buy from Michael's that makes creases easier... but was already half-way through when I learned that.

                Then I just cut off a corner of the paper so that the invite would be visible... and then used double stick tape along the opposite edge to make the pocket. (originally i lined the top of the pocket w/ double stick tape but it made it difficult to get the invite in/out). Then I used the corner cutter on all the edges to make them similar to the BPs.

                Lastly, I used a large palm tree punch I found at Michael's. Not sure if mine was just defective or if the cardstock was too thick - but this part was a major pain. It required you to press down really hard - I could barely do it - so Sean did most of it. But I liked how it looked in the end and then didn't feel the need to print anything on the pocketfold.

                Hope that sorta makes sense.
