      Ok, so I ordered the template and I am pretty sure I will be able to complete edits without issues. 

       

      Are there any printing instructiions? 

       

      do you know if the template comes with intructions on how to cut and assemble?

       

      I am having a hard time picturing how I am not going to wind up with blank pages.

       

      I really want to try doing this myself.  We are on a budget...lol

        Yes, there are printing instructions AND cutting lines.  I definitely suggest using a paper cutter.  I filled my front and back blank pages with a quote and a thank you note -- you can see that in my pictures.  You'll figure it out!!  Let me know if you need any help!  Good luck!! You'll have the template within a day. Just be aware that with the template, the cover measurements are the same as the pages, so if you want the cover to be a little bigger than the inside pages you'll just have to mess with the outline a little to make them bigger :o) hope that makes sense!

          Thanks for the tips.  I bought the template from Aylee awhile back and I'm working on the design now. I had thought about just designing them and sending them off to get them printed, but this give me a little courage to try the printing myself.

            I was worried about printing them myself too, but if you put them on the printer's best setting, they really do come out fine.

                great job! Thanks for posting this - I'll definitely have to look at Vistaprint for the reply postcards.

                  Hi!

                  I love the passport invitations. I am planning to do the same for my destination wedding coming up. Did you manually cut all of the cardstock with the rounded edges? How did you bind the passports??

                   

                  Looking forward to your response.

                   

                  Thanks,

                   

                  Marianne

                    Thank you! For corners I purchased a basic corner round punch at AC Moore.  You can buy them at any craft store.  I bound the pages with a ZIG brand glue pen, and the pages to the cardstock with a card making glue (it was stronger than the zig pen for holding better).  Let me know if you have any other questions!
