    Hi Ladies!  Thanks to all of your input I am finally finished with my Boarding Pass STDs!!  They went out last week and everyone loved them.  They definitely took a long time to create but it was worth it!  I designed them in Word and had them printed at Kinkos on metallic pearlescent cardstock that I ordered from Paperandmore.com.  Not sure if you can tell from the pics but the pearlescent cardstock was really neat and all the white areas on our STD are shimmery!  I created sleeves out of metallic gold linen cardstock (also from paperandmore.com) and tied them with palm raffia that I threaded through the back so that it would stay with the sleeve once it was opened.  I perforated the ‘passenger receipt’ part of the boarding pass and attached a magnet on the back so that my guests could keep that part on their fridge (if the boarding pass was too big).  I included a brochure from our resort and put it all in a razzle pink #10 envelope that I decorated with a gold palm tree (stamp and pad from Michaels).  Finished it off with personalized stamps created at zazzle.com with our date and name. 

     They turned out to be about $2.75 per STD.  That price included cardstock, envelopes, 2 stamps per STD, printing costs, and raffia). I didn’t add in any equipment that I had to buy to make them since I’ll be using it for all my DIY wedding stuff.  Not bad imo!
