PIC HEAVY - My DIY Message in a Bottle & Boarding Pass invites FINALLY done!!

Recommended Posts

FINALLY!!!

 

We finished our message in a bottle/boarding pass invites. The formal invitation is the "message in a bottle" and the boarding passes are the RSVP card and information about the resort. I think they turned out great :)

 

I took a LOT of ideas from this forum - and I give full credit to those brides who's ideas I borrowed. Thank you all so much!!

Sticky on the box so people would actually open the darn things -this was taken from the girl who posted earlier today about her MIB invites - and its definitely a necessity for MIB invitations - nobody wants to actually OPEN them!! lol! So thank you for the idea!

Corks: 10 cents each - we got 40.
