    Mexico wedding - invites to Mexico & stateside reception in Maryland

    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!

    Purchased:
    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.

    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.

            Thanks!

            I forgot to add that we used a tool to Fold the card stock for the ticket jackets. My mom bought it and it was called a Bone something.... can't remmeber the proper name but basically you trace where the folds should be and then use it to create a very harsh fold so the ticket jackets stay closed.

            We then used glue dots to keep them closed.

            It was fun!

              I love the colors you used. They turned out fab. Great job :)

              PS: A bone folder is an invaluable tool for these kinds of projects!

                  My Mom bought the paper from a scrap booking store in Florida. They have the best paper!
