      These are beautiful, I love them!!


      I am thinking about this DIY invitations, but I am worried about how much it would cost vs. just getting them done.  How much would you say it was for you?


      Great job!

        Thank you!! I made 25 invitations and the supplies probably cost me around $30.  I paid $10 for the template (best money I have ever spent!!), around $15 for the cover card stock, and $5 for a corner round punch.  I used a nicer printer paper for the inside pages that we already had. 


        You can definitely do this!!!  Aylee's template looks just like this, I just added the pictures and text and changed the title background color to orange!  Here are some things to help you get started...

          Try changing the text direction in Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 if you have it on your computer.  You can make any image with your text in that program and then rotate it at any angle you want.  Then save the new image with the rotated text.  This is a great program for stuff like this.

                I just got a new laptop that has MS Publisher installed on it, it's fabulous for creating me invites. It's easy to rotate pitcures, change colors and it can even show you how to load paper for multiple pages.

                  Just bought the template!  I love the idea but didn't want to pay a ton for the passport invitations.  Now that I can do it myself I love it!!!!

                      Those are super cute! I really want to do passport invites for mine, but I'm not crafty at all....springing for the $10 template might be totally worth it
