I completed my first DIY project and am so excited.  Thanks to Ayleebits template I was able to design my own boarding pass and thanks to work I was able to print and cut them.  My only investment was the paper, a corner punch and a perforating blade.  Now if my fiance will just give me his list of addresses.....

They look great!!  I am in the process of working with my friend who is doing my templates for me for my invites ( I did a postcard for the STD).  What type of paper did you use for the tickets and the jacket and where did you buy the paper?

I was thinking about doing the boarding pass for my STD or invite. They came out great! Please let us know details of how you DIY. My brother is a printer and I have a couple of GD friends that could help me make this. Thanks for sharing!

These look great!  That was the template I was originally going to use, so I was so interested to see how they turned out. 

 

Turns out I didnt have the patience for DIY, so had to pay for my invites :(

 

Congrats...they look great!

Thanks everyone!

 

The Ayleebits template had some good instructions on how to insert images and such.  I'm not very good with Word so it was a lot of trial and error.  I did Yahoo searches for images and found that map which was exactly what I wanted.  Luckily I have some free time so it was OK, but it is definitely a time consuming process.  And I'd definitely recommend a good paper cutter.

 

I used 80 lb card stock for the tickets which my fiance actually had at his office.  For the jackets I drove myself crazy.  I really wanted turquoise and I couldn't find it anywhere - art stores, craft stores, paper/invitation stores, office supply stores - I went all over the city. They all had card stock in aqua or other shades of blue but not turquoise.  I finally found some at Michael's but they only had about 10 sheets.  So I finally said, this is ridiculous-they are only the STD, not the invites.  I ended up using regular colored paper from Office Depot.  And actually Aylee's instructions said to use 24 lb paper anyway. 

 

When it comes to invite time, I'm doing the passport ones but I think I'll have those done professionally.  This was fun and rewarding, but I know my limits.

    • 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.
