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

SAVE THE DATES:

Below are the INVITATIONS:

I made the envelope liner and band by customizing a map that I found and just cutting and glueing them into the envelope. I used glue dots for the bands.

I created the first page on picmonkey.com, I wanted a unique invitation.  I think it worked well with the fun style of the passport invite.

I didnâ€t have too much information to put into my invites because I put all prices and packages on our wedding website.  I used the  Aylee Designs Template for the passports:

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

RSVP POSTCARDS:

 

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!

Iâ€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'd only whipped out our wedding check card 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)

Staples

Cutter

Martha Stewart Boning Folder

Forever Stamps

 

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

I love your invites! Honestly, some of the best I have seen!

 

One question, what did you include with the passport? It looks like something else is behind it and just curious what else you included.

 

Thank you so much for sharing. Truly gorgeous!
