    Hi Desties As clich© as boarding pass and passports invites are on BDW, I have received a ton of compliments on mine (even from the single guys). So since this project was one of the main reasons I joined BDW I thought I would share and include a bunch of images for all you picture fanatics

    I ordered the paper from paperandmore.com and thought the company was awesome. The paper and envelopes are pearlescent metallic and I heart how shimmery they are. The only thing I would have done different is with the stupid little green vellum boarding pass envelopes. They were a PITA, but FI convinced me to make them. Last time I listen to him on DIY stuff

    The total cost for 150 was about $500 or a little over $3 per invite. That includes everything from the idea in the beginning to getting the RSVP card back.

    Enjoy!

                  I forgot to add that FI totally helped me make them. We went through a couple of bottles of wine, but it was totally worth the time spent together. Don't ask him about it because he will deny that he had anything to do with them!

                    Why Miss Autumn, I do declare! Well done, darlin'!!

                    They're AMAZING, and I would have completely thought you had paid a fortune for them! I also love the faint Texas flag in the background of the AHR invites...the flair of an American state's flag is a welcome, lovely contrast to the decidedly Mexican flavor of the "Pasaporte" invites!

                    Way to get in there and get it done in fabulous DIY-style!
