I spent an entire day getting these done and I love them. I have had lots of compliments saying how they are the coolest things anyone has seen. Even a not so close friend said he saw it on his kitchen table (I invited his roommate) and thought they were awesome.
I am so happy that no one had seen the Boarding pass before. For my STDs, I sent postcards. I thought these took too much work to just be the STDs, but if you are good with this kindof stuff, by all means .....
I also included a one page detail sheet about the resort. I think we invited maybe 50 ppl so I of course spoke with or emailed everyone individually to discuss the wedding, costs, etc.
I used the Sticky note a lot for ideas so thanks to all of the other brides who shared!
Thick card stock in pinks and oranges for the envelope holder
Gorgeous white envelopes - #9 size fits perfectly. I think we used Off White Crane envelopes
Glue Dots - to seal one side of the ticket jacket
Cutting board with perforator blade
Twine stuff to tie it with.
WORD OF CAUTION ABOUT FONTS
I printed my invites at Kinkos. Since I downloaded fonts on Word that a standard Word user does not have, I had to print my invite to a PDF and have them printed from there. If you upload your word document to Kinkos, or even bring your USB key there, they will not have your font and it will default out. I had to get mine reprinted. It was not expensive - like $50 for nice card stock paper and 50 copies or so.
Back - last page is postcard to return RSVP:
All of my invites ready for stuffing!:
Into the Crane Envelope:
I printed all of my addresses using my fancy font (from www.dafont.com)onto clear address labels. I printed my own return address labels too.
