Finally!! I am done with the Invites, it took forever and many times throughout the process I wanted to just give up and buy some invites. But after reading so many DIY threads it kept me motivated to make them. Thanks to all the Brides on this forum for their help and templates and Alyee of Alyee Bits for the template! All said and done I love them and I am glad we did them - they were less than $200 for 150 invites!!

 

Here they are my first DIY project all done!! Yeahh!!

 

Here is the envelopes and the front of the Boarding pass ticket jacket

I used a paper cutter to cut them all out, and we tried to perforate them but it took forever and we couldn't get it to look perfect, so we stopped doing them. I used a corner rounder punch to do the edges but that was pretty frustrating - I'm not sure if it was just mine but it would ruin some of them, then I cut with scissors the inside nook. I used a Martha Stewart fold tool to fold the jacket perfectly. I did a mail merge with clear labels, return address labels on vista print with our logo and regular business size envelopes it fit perfectly!

 

So glad to have them all done - it was a lot of work but I am glad I did it!!

New Yorkie - I just found it online somewhere I just searched papel picado, and then I used the washout function so it wouldn't be so bright. Hope it helps!

 

Here is the one I used

They look wonderful!!

 

I was just nodding my head reading about how you wanted to give up and it was such a big job but totally worth it. I did the same thing and the corner punch made me want to lose my mind!

 

Perforating was a b*tch too! If you did it too hard it would be floppy.

 

I had originally planned to do passport invites as well but after that, I have promptly hired someone with more sanity than me to complete them wink.gif
