    Thanks so much for your help!! I've been trying to find a paper weight that's just a bit heavier than the "text weight" #81 from paperandmore.com's site but the next one up is too heavy to print at home [#105]. And the paper weight around #90 I've found which would be perfect, other sites don't offer the same pearlescent nice colors! ugh!  I'll find it soon hopefully =)

    The envelopes were just #10 envelopes. The sleeves were just the Pearlescent Azalea paper in the 8.5 x 11 size and I folded/cut them to make them sleeves. I played around with them a lot until I got the scoring lines where I wanted them, but since you can't print on the pearlescent paper, I can't really give you a template for it because I didn't use one.

     

    Good luck! Let me know you have any more questions!

      Honestly, the #81 weight worked just fine for them. It was just heavy enough. I actually was worried about it when I first got the paper and felt it, but then once they were done, it felt just like a normal boarding pass would.

       

      Good luck!

        Yes the #81 is a good weight, but I have two boarding passes and you can see right through the first to second. I ordered the next weight higher and we'll see how heavy it really is when I receive it. I'll let you know how it goes thanks =)

            It was #81 pearlescent peach. I used dark purple font which could be why you can see through it. I'll see how the heavier one prints & if the color remains as vibrant- if not I'll stick with the #81 as these are just my save the dates =)

              I love the paper, love the flower and the colours are very nice too. Is this the colour of the bridesmaids dresses?

                  Thanks! Actually, my bridesmaid dresses are teal and the pink is my accent color.

                   

                  This is the look I am going for...

                    Love these colours!  They will look great next to the ocean.  Are you going with the pink shoes?

                      these are very pretty...thanks. About how long did it take for you to cut the tickets? I'm considering using Kinko's or some other service IF they will; otherwise may have a cut 'n stuff" party with the bridesmaids
