I had never even heard of boarding pass invitations before I joined this forum, so when I first saw them on here, I went through pretty much every boarding pass thread I could find. Thank you to so many ladies whose templates and pictures helped me SO much: Aylee, Becks, Island Princess, Jennie0521, BeckyN, Shoesiesluvr and many more. I also saw jmb0902â€s circular return address labels, and I knew I wanted to incorporate them: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/39572/diy-return-address-labels-pics.


I'm not sure if I started with Aylee's template, but I'm sure whichever one I used came from her originally.


I designed the boarding passes and address labels in Word, and the monogram, return address label and ticket jacket in PowerPoint. I love the end result!


We had to make about 100 invitations, so the assembly was quite a project. Together, my FI and I did all the scoring, folding, gluing, cutting, corner punching, stuffing, belly banding and sealing. It was quite a task.




  • Straight cutters – Fiskars and X-acto (I prefer the Fiskars), Michaels
  • Corner punch – Fiskars, Michaels
  • Bone folder and scoring board – Martha Stewart, www.Save-on-crafts.com
  • Adhesive for bottom seam of the ticket jackets and belly bands: Elmerâ€s Craft Bond dual tip pen, Michaels (this stuff is cheap and awesome but a bit messy)




  • Boarding passes and monograms on belly bands: Snow White 110lb cardstock, www.cardsandpockets.com, $32/200 sheets
  • Ticket jackets: Tabriz blue 110lb cardstock, www.cardsandpockets.com, $19/100 sheets
  • Black cardstock for belly bands: 65lb, Michaels, $1.50/25 sheets
  • Blue belly band ribbon: 1.5†wide, Michaels, $4/roll. We used approximately 6 rolls.
  • Envelopes: Nero (black) No. 10 envelopes, www.envelopperinc.com, $23.80/100 (nice heavy quality)
  • Wraparound labels: full page labels, Staples, $6/25 sheets


Total cost (not including tools which I had or were Christmas presents): $106

Approximate cost per invitation: $ 1.06



Belly Band measurements:

Ribbon: 8†x 1.5â€

Black cardstock: 8.5†x 1.75â€


Belly band monogram measurements:

Black backing square: 2†x 2â€

Monogram square: 1.75†x 1.75â€



If you want to use the template, the downloaded fonts I used were Old Script and Wmtrees1 from www.dafont.com. Without these, these templates might look wonky.














I'll post pics in the next post...

Good job! Love that shade of blue. The "ribbon" (?) that you had around the boarding passes folder is a very nice touch! Thanks for sharing all the details!

Thanks! It is indeed just satin 1.5" ribbon. I thought it added a little something while still keeping a simple look.

Acieta, thanks so much for sharing. I'm getting super excited about starting to do our invites. I think this may be a bridesmaids' "get together" task rather than FI because I got frustrated when he put the labels and postage for the STDs slanted.. lol. Love learning more and more about things we do well and not so much.:-)

    • Greetings. I'm really confused because my younger sister's marriage is fixed. Now the date is fixed for April 15th. We are planning to conduct a function only with minimal members. I neec to find out a best wedding venue or organizer. I need your advice which will be really helpful. Thank you
    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
