We have finally finished and sent out our Boarding Pass Invitations! We came up with the idea for boarding pass invitations from this site and a friend of ours that is a graphic designer created them, made them pretty and had them printed for us. One night me, my fiancee and a girlfriend of mine made all of the invitation folders (60 in total) over a few glasses of wine (me) and beer (them). We were really happy with the way they turned out and have gotten great feed back so far!
The paper and envelopes we bought from a place in New Westminster called the Paper Poet. The rest of the materials were from Michaels, and I have gathered it all for quite some time, with coupons. We ended up having to pay oversized postage because of the knots that we tied with the raffia and bows...it wouldn't fit through the "regular" sized slot at the post office. Darnit! Oh well, at least we only had 60 invitations to send! I'd do it all over again, too, because I love them!
If anyone has any questions, just let me know! I'd be happy to help if I could! Thanks to everyone that has posted similar invitations and folders. You are all the inspiration that we needed to come through with these on our own!
Here are all three pages of the invitation. On the first page is an actual working QR code, so you could scan it with a QR scanner and it would take you straight to our wedding website! Pretty cool! Not sure how many people actually scanned it, though.
Here is what was printed on the back of each page.
Here is a shot of the pages, that we clipped together at the top left corner with a silver brad and flowers.
And here is the final product!
We didn't take a picture of the mailing envelope, but they were a pearl-ish white and we printed clear address labels that had our heart logo on the return address label. Then we had stickers with our logo and wedding date that we put on the backs of the envelope. Yay! So exciting that they are done!
