        These are fantastic! Did you mail out all pieces in one larger envelope? I am creating passport invites and originally just had an envelope to put those in, but now I feel like I might need a pocket fold to put the passport in. But, then there is an empty base page, so then I feel like I might need to put the invite there. Sigh.  As you can tell I am torn with this one. Do you think some pocket fold is needed instead of putting passport in the mailing envelope?

                No problem, Yes paperandmore is awesome. I brought the pink paper to make the pockets and the orange to put lining in the envelope. I also brought the RSVP and the larger envelope to mail out the invites.

                  Thank you yes i mailed out the invites in the pink #10 policy envelope.  No not really if the passport imvitation is the only thing going in the envelope. If you plan to send anything else, I would suggest a pocketfold.  good luck with your project

                    You did an awesome job!  I love them.  I am doing passport invites and am kind of torn about the packaging.  At first I bought just the small envelopes to just put the passports in.  But now I see that I lot of people get the pocketfolds, then put the passport in the pocketfold, then an envelope.  The only thing with the passport size pocketfolds is that it would have this blank base page that would normally contain the invitation.  So, now I am wondering if I should do the extra work of getting the pocketfolds, taking the 'invitation' part out of the passport, and creating a new 'invitation' on the base page.  Sigh....more than I bargained for, but might be better.  What do you ladies think?  This is all DIY, but I did find the pocketfold envelopes on papersandmore.com for $41.99 for 50.  So, I think its worth it because I looked up how to pocketfolds yourself, but looks like a ton of work! lol!  Here is a sample of the pocketfold I was talking about (not my design, I just pulled a sample from google).  But, instead of all the inserts, I would just put the passport which contains all that info.  Can I get away with just the envelope, or should I really put the passport in the pocketfold?
