My Boarding Pass STDs

Recommended Posts

Here is the original thread: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t17229

 

There is no way I could have come up with these on my own. A big thanks to all who posted templates that I was able to merge into the finished product.

 

Here are my supplies:

http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/e...2/100_1044.jpg

I used white linen 67lb paper for the passes and Metallic Cardstock in Aqua Lagoon for the jackets. Both were from PaperandMore.com

 

From Michael's I bought the rotary cutter, big palm tree punch, 2 corner punches, brushed nickle rivets, 5 assorted beachy/travel stamps, and 2 Martha Stewart inkpads in Aqua.

 

My omega ribbon came from Baer's Fabrics, a local store. I bought the whole spool, so everything is getting ribbon!

 

Our Travel Agent printed up a little flyer with trip details, her contact info, and request for info form at no cost to us that we included in each envelope (not the pass).

 

I did 3 pages. The first was the announcement page, the second detailed the location, resort, and what was included, and the last page was about our At Home Reception. I put our webite on each page and asked everyone to RSVP to our website. Now, I wish I had done a postcard RSVP. I loved Heidi's mad-libs!

 

The actual passes were pretty easy. I just basically altered the template to pertain to us and our location. I was having trouble with the clip art in word, so I decided to stamp the designs. I like that it gave them a slightly more weathered look.

 

I did decide to skip the perforating part. Normally, the ends tear off, but this was just too much work. I also bought the wrong size blade to fit the cutter that I had and I just wanted the project to be done!

 

The Jacket/Folder things were really easy!

  • I started by folding the cardstock into thirds. There is something called a bone creaser or something that helps you get the lines straight and crisp.
  • I cut the bottom panel at an angle so the pass could show.
  • I then used the corner punch to round all of the outside edges, then opened the jacket to round the inside corners.
  • Finally, I punched the palm tree out of the right side to give the jacket a little more detail. I thought about stamping the outside or adding text, but again I was done crafting at that point. Now I have about 100 little palm tree cut outs that I don't know what to do with.

Tips:

1) Find any 4 people and start an assembly line! (stamper, cutter, riveter, folder, etc.)

2) Use the corner-rounder paper punch to save time and make the edges even on the passes.

3) Because the eye of the rivet was so small I used a needle threader to get the ribbon through.

 

Here's the final product:

These are so cute! I love your colors and design!

 

I borrowed your palm tree stamp idea myself... did you have issues with punching through the cardstock? or was mine just defective?

 

I ended up adding the palm tree cut out to the envelope we are sending because I had all of them. I can't wait to finish everything and put it all together!

The palm tree was difficult to get out of the cardstock. At one point I was putting the paper on the floor and standing on it to get the punch to work.

 

On about the last 5, I ran out of cardstock and had to use the metallic text weight paper. This is still heavier than regular paper and was SOOO much easier!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
