    Our DIY Kraft Paper Passport Invites (Tons of Pictures)

    We made passports to match the theme of our Kraft Paper Save-the-dates:

    Below are the INVITATIONS:

    I made the envelope liner and band by customizing a map that I found and just cutting an

    d glueing them into the envelope.  I used glue dots for the bands.

    I created the first page (actual invite on picmonkey.com)

    I didn’t have too much information to put into my invites because I put all prices and packages on our wedding website.

    I made address labels to match the pages of the passport and then just hand wrote the address in:

    I used one of our engagement pictures, microsoft paint, dafont.com & picmonkey.com to create the RSVP card, I then uploaded the front and back to vistaprint.com and was able to print 100 RSVP postcards for just the cost of uploading the 2 files and shipping!

    I’ve been working a crazy amount of hours and had no time to get my invites sent out.  So one night last week when I was at the office late, my sister and personal attendant came and while I worked on work stuff they worked all night on the invites.  Seriously I am so lucky with the people I have in my life!!


    This entire project cost me just $39.00 because I was somehow able to utilize only supplies I already owned.  I didn't even try to cut costs but in the end I realized that I wiped out our wedding check card only twice!  Once for the Postcard stamps (a had already saved up 100 regular stamps for the invites) and the second time for the shipping on the RSVP cards from Vistaprint. 


    Other supplies I used but already had were:


    Kraft Paper Cardstock

    Brochure Paper (for inner pages)

    Avery 8163 shipping labels for addresses

    Avery 8293 1" round labels for return addresses

    Reg paper for envelope liners and bands

    Envelopes (already had from a previous VistaPrint order)



    Martha Stewart Boning Folder


    I think that that is everything.  Please let me know if you have any questions!  Happy Planning Ladies!

      Beautiful work. Kudos to your FI for all the help. I would love for mine to work with me on this. We tried one project and it turned into 5 more with homework.
