            Hey,

            AMAZING DIY passports, question.... where did you get the paper and envelopes? and where did you end up printing them?

              I got the paper at a local store here in Portland called Paperzone but its Stardream brand metallic paper and if you can buy it online. I printed them at kinkos but it got to be pretty spendy so id recommend printing at like Office Max Staples, Office Depot, etc... I printed my STDs at  Office Max and they looked fantastic and were way cheaper!

                  Teira1031...these are amazing!  I was trying to figure our how to fasten ours together..I will be using a ribbon for detail but that won't hold the pages together.  Some of the BDW Brides have used gleue - but to me that would be a mess and too nerve wracking!  Looks like you just stapled it??  Was that hard?  It looks dead on..what did you us/how did you do it so neat??  Thanks SO much for sharing - they are amazing!!  Also..what paper did you use for the inside?

                    Sarcrook- I was originally going to hand sew the booklets together but thank goodness I didn't because it would have taken forever! Lol! Stapling them was actually really easy and I'm a perfectionist so I was worried about not stapling at the right places but it only took me stapling one booklet to figure out where to line my stapler up at and it was super quick and easy from there, just did 3 staples down the seam. For the inside pages I used Stardream brand metallic paper that is a little lighter weight than the cover cardstock and the color I think is called Pearl or opal maybe? Not positive on the color name. Hope this helps :D

                      Teira1031..THANK YOU - that helps a lot...one thing - did you just use a regular stapler?  Also...did you send your invites in another envelope besides the one with your monogram on it?  Thinking it would look nothing like that after going through the mail..
