My DIY Boarding Pass STD's are Finally Done =) Template Included!

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies! First and foremost, I would like to thank all of you fabulous brides & brides-to-be. Without your inspiration and advice, I would never have even attempted to do this myself! Although it took way longer than I anticipated, it was totally worth it! I gave them to our parents for an initial reaction, and they thought we had them professionally done!

I hope this thread helps and inspires you all =)

 

Breakdown of supplies & costs:

 

http://Paperandmore.com

-Boarding Pass Paper: #105 Peach Metallic Card Stock [100 sheets] X 2 packages = 200 sheets $59.98

-Boarding Pass Envelopes: #10 Pink Azalea Metallic 4 1/8" X 9 1/2" [50 envelopes] X 3 packages = 150 envelopes $41.97

 

http://www.michaels.com/

-Fiskars Round Corner Punch $11.99- On Sale = $9.09

-Fiskars Square Hole Punch 1/4" = $5.99

-Spool O' Ribbon Purple 2 for $1 = $2 for 4 spools

 

I also used a paper cut, free of charge, as I have one in my office =)

 

Total Spent = $119.03, $.92 per boarding pass! [130 made]

Here is another view, as the colors vary in different lighting [due to the shimmer paper] 

The color really pops nicely in person, you can get a better idea of it by this one below:

As for the envelopes, I was able to print directly onto them! Just do a test first to be sure they will go through your printer without jamming or smearing!

 

I used Powerpoint to create these because it allowed me to recolor to my liking and edit each image. I'm not sure if it was the printer or the paper, but the original colors I used came out totally different when they printed [came out all red]! It took a bit of modifying, but it worked out just fine.

I downloaded the FREE template from Aylee Bits!  I actually deleted all of the information that was already included, so I also created a blank template for those of you who want to make one from scratch as I have.

 

I am thrilled with the final product, and hope you all like them as much as I do!!

Hi!! Thanks so much =) Well, maybe it felt longer than it actually was- because I would work on them a little bit every night when I got home from work. The cutting is what really took the longeest to complete! For everything, from cutting to addressing envelopes, I would say it took about 10-12 hours. Exhausting, but worth it =)

I couldn't have done it without this forum!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
