How did you put them together? I'm sorry for all the questions but this is exactly what I want and I have no clue how to make it.

Thanks so much for posting these great invitations!!
Thanks for the compliments!! I have uploaded pictures of all the tools I used onto flickr again for you to see what I used (no picture of my stapler and glue though thats pretty basic stuff).

Invitation Supplies - a set on Flickr

So there is the link. If you click on each photo, under is a description of what I used it for and where I got it from.

Now to explain how I did them:
I bought a template from a girl online who sells templates for invitations OR she will make them for you, it was like $10 or $15. I used microsoft word to adapt the template to myself, changing around 50% of her template but it was AWESOME to have!!

I printed the inside pages off and cut them down to size (there are edges are the page when you have in on the computer and when you print..it made it nice and easy) Then to make the outside edge I measured how wide the inside pages were when cut down, doubled it (for front and back) and then added about 1.5-2cm to the width to make up for an edge and the fold and then added 1 cm to the height aswell.

Each blue page makes two passport covers and two rsvp's. When making the front page I had found some stamps at Wal-Mart that were individual letters but I didn't like the way they looked, I couldnt get them straight, it just looked sloppy. I had one of the those gold marker/pens at home and Kyle (my FI) had the idea of me just writing it on by hand. So I did... First I put the palm tree on to see how much room I had to write, let the ink from the stamp dry and then wrote Passprt To Paradise.

Once that was all done, I used the corner cutting tool to cut all the corners. For the inside pages I suggest getting all the pages you have going in one passport and cutting them ALL together. And then for the outside, fold it and cut front and back together. Then I just stuck my four inside pages in the outside, folded and stapled! I just WISH I had have been able to find GOLD staples!! sad.gif Oh well

For the RSVP's I used the piece left from cutting the two passports out (I went against the edges to save as much paper as possible) and then just cut it in half...I used the same background as my passport pages and just glued them right on, and then glued the starfish on!!

I hope this helps!! Let me know if you need any more help!!

Thanks so much!!! Those are great instructions :) Do you remember who you bought the template from? and Yes, I am from Sudbury...born and raised here :) What high school did you go to? I went to CND. But regardless, I'm sure we know many of the same ppl since this is such a small place.

Thanks again for the help :)

I had 55 to make and it didnt take forever. Also if you get a kind of assembly line going (get all your bridesmades together and do it) then its not that bad. Honestly the most time consuming thing is just cutting all the pages out!!! I wish I had had 2 to 3 of the little cutters so I could have had afew ppl cutting at the same time b/c without the pages cut out you cant really do anything else!

I say if you put your mind to it you can do it!! ESPECIALLY with the help of family and friends!!

Good luck! Wish I could help!! CND, is that confedhuh.gif I went to Lasalle!! I'm sure we know some of the same people, thuogh Sudbury isn't as small as where I am now!! The town I live in now has like 15000 ppl...SOO small!! I miss Sudbury so much, I want to come this summer so bad!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
