I was just wondering if there was a thread (looked but couldn't find it) where there may be templates or ideas for DIY invites that aren't boarding passes or passports. If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated! :)

I made pocketfold invitations for my AHR using pockets from cardsandpockets.com.

PocketFolds

I don't have a picture of them right now, but if you're interested in doing something like that, I can share my templates and take some pictures.

Thanks for the information! I think I'm looking at making something a little more simpler! I was all into this invite making but now I'm busy with a new job and life! lol

Wow, Andi those are gorgeous ... I think we'll have to seriously consider ordering the pocketfolds from that company. It's going to cost so much more to buy the bristol board, cut them to spec and fold them ourselves. :-p No way!

For those of you who live near a Papersource, they have pocketfolds. I think they were $10-$11 for a package of 10. They have a website, too.

Here's a pic of mine.

These are DIY for the most part. I ordered both kinds of paper from paperandmore.com and had them cut the aqua cardstock to 5x7 for me (it was only $5 for them to do it). Then I designed the top piece myself in graphic design software and took that to a local quick printer to be output on a color copier and trimmed to size ($28 dollars for 50 copies trimmed to 100 pieces). Then my FI and I put spray mount on the back of the vellum piece and attached it to the cardstock. All 100 invites were assembled and ready to go in about 45 minutes.

Obviously since I designed it myself I don't have a template, but if you like the layout I can probably put one together for you pretty quickly if you'll tell me what software you can use.
