This was the most tedious thing I have EVER done! I had Jennifer Alison design the file for my boarding pass STD after I spent about a week trying to design my own and realized I'm not that savvy. She had designed my monograms (5 monograms for $15!!!) and they turned out awesome so I knew she would do a fabulous job on the boarding passes, which she did! I couldnt be happier with how they look. Then I spend hours cutting them out which was a pain in the butt and it doesnt help that I'm a perfectionist. Then I did the pocket folds which took a few more hours to cut out, fold & glue, another pain the butt task Then tied raffia around them to give a finishing touch because i thought they looked too plain without anything. For the envelopes I ended up having to use "clear" address labels because my injet wouldnt print on the metallic paper and didnt want to take them somewhere to have printed. They say they are clear but really they are like a vellum-y texture so you can see them on the envelope which i am not happy about but oh well. I also have custom stamps made at Zazzle.com with one of our monograms on it, and they turned out great! Although I am really happy with the end product If I had them to do all over again I dont think I would DIY them, I'd just pay somebody to do them. In the end I think they ended up costing me more $ then if I had payed somebody to do them in the first place and a lot of time and stress.But here they are...
