Wow ladies! I can't believe these are finally done.  They took a lot of work, but I think they are so worth it in the end.  I was even at a scrapbook store yesterday to pick up some supplies and the manager saw them and asked if I wanted to teach a class! Ha ha. I said no thanks, but please check out this web site.  Thanks so much to everyone before me who posted ideas.  I took a bit from everyone, and even a quote from SexyT. Thanks so much girls for the inspiration.

 

I used AyleeBits template for the actual boarding pass. It took a few hours on word to figure out how to do things, but I finally did it!  I really loved the website www.dafont for the starfish, palm tree and flip flop clip arts.  I think most of them are tropicanaBV font.  Make sure to watch the youtube video if you don't know how to import font. It really helped me!  I also imported some pretty script that I didn't have on my computer.

 

I found the AyleeBits template for the pocket holder to be somewhat confusing so I just made my own. I simply divided a regular sheet of pearlized paper into 3 even sections and cut off an edge at a diagonal to make the pocket piece. I would suggest using scrapbooking double sided tape that is very narrow to glue down the pocket.  The smaller the better as anything thick makes it hard to slide your boarding pass into the pocket. Also, this is where a boner tool (used to make your creases) comes in handy, as well as a good ruler.I had them laser printed at Kinko's for $.59 a page! Hope this all helps! Thanks again to everyone who gave me ideas!

 

Tools:

I found the best tool ever to be the friskars rotary tool.  I used the regular blade as well as the perferated blade.  You will need this to bend back your left edge to round the corner and make it have that cut out look, or the divet.  This is an expensive tool, but if you use a 40% off coupon at Micheal's it makes it manageable.

You need a good corner punch, spend a couple extra dollars for the good one and it prevents blisters. Do it to each corner, and then fold back your perferated edge and do it to those corners for your divet.

Your STDs are truly spectacular! Quick question: Did you print the template directly onto the magnetic sheets? Sorry for the silly question. Thank you.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
