    I have to first say that I cannot take full credit for these Save The Date boarding passes. I basically took Carly’s boarding pass template and modified it a little to create mine (all I really did to the template was change the flower to a palm tree).

    Then I used the holder from Aylee Bits
    DIY: Boarding Pass Invitation / Save The Date - Aylee Bits
    I used template 2 because it was much easier and worked better with the cardstock I chose.

    I fastened the pages of the boarding pass together with a rhinestone brad and a flower (each person got a different color). I turned our monogram into a sticker by using sticker paper (Avery) and a circle punch and stuck it over the ribbon on the boarding pass holder.

    The most time consuming part was cutting everything, but they did not take as much time as I thought they would to assemble. I spent the better part of my day on them and my fiance was kind enough to help for about two minutes before he got bored. I made about 35 of them.

    Warning: These took two stamps to mail. I probably would have chosen a lighter cardstock if I had known, but I didn’t find that out until they were all done and I was not about to redo anything.

    I have received a TON of compliments on them and people thought the cruise ship had given them to us to mail out. My FFIL actually thought it was his real boarding pass for the cruise!

    Thanks to all the people I borrowed ideas from!

          They turned out awesome! I'm hoping to do some of these as well. Did you send them out for printing or print from home?

              Wow. I can't believe you made made those. They look so professional! I love the boarding pass idea. Can't decide if I could make them look that good myself, not very DIY handy, or spend the extra on paper stuff and save money somewhere else. Lot's of people on here have made them look so good!

              Well done!

                You did a great job on them. I hope when it comes time to make my invites they will look just as nice.

                  Glad your FI was such a help - I had hoped to get some help from my FI but I think about 2 minutes would do him too! :)
