My passport invites are complete and being sent tomorrow!

Recommended Posts

WOW. Finally all those countless hours of editing and stressing paid off! I finally completed those dang DIY passports!!

I've decided to offer up some insight for those thinking about it.. they are hard work if you arent creative (like me)! haha

----

I LOVED how I only spent:

*$65 on ink (I bought to full cartridges from costco, and ended up only using one (to the last drops), so I get to take back the other cartridge..yay!)

*$32 on cardstock from ebay!! (At staples each pack was like $25 but I randomly found what I was looking for in a set of three on ebay for $28 +s/h.)

*$5 for a 400 foot line of hemp from Joanns Fabric to tie it all together (VERY EASY rather than having to bind them or hole punch or whatever else you'd do)

----

My aunt is a teacher and had a papercutter at her house, so we all went over and had an assembly line.. luckily my mom took a calligraphy course in college in the 70's, so she was hard at work addressing all 100 invites!!

 

Here's how they turned out (I could've rounded the edges, but to tell you the absolute truth I was exhausted..it was an entire 9am to 5pm day!!):

I attached the template I used.. thanks so much to the BDW that originally put it up here.. its been edited all over the place but still has the general layout. (If you decide to use it the little black lines on the top and bottom help cutting a straight line ;] )

I love them!!! Great work!!! They look so beautiful. You are so lucky your mom can do calligraphy. My mom bought me a pen and book to learn! =)
