Boarding pass invitations with luggage tag RSVP's

Recommended Posts

Ok, this was my first big DIY project, and I'm really not crafty.  Fortunately, my fiance has a friend who is a graphic designer and works for a printer, so I gave him the design I wanted and he took care of the actual boarding pass itself.  The rest of it was all me.  Our colors are Tiffany Blue and Coral.  The colors in the photos may not look exact, since I took them with my iPhone. 

 

Card stock, envelopes, etc: I actually used cover stock from paperpresentation.com instead of card stock.  I wanted nice, heavy paper for the boarding pass sleeves.  Their paper quality was great and we were lucky enough that they had both of our colors in everything that we needed.  The only thing I can caution though, is that the cover stock is quite heavy.  My old printer wouldn't feed it through, so we bought a new printer (we needed one anyways), and that still would not work.  I ended up having to have it printed at Office Depot.

Thanks!  I'm sending one out today to my mom to make sure the $0.65 wedding invite postage is sufficient.  Once she gets it, assuming everything is okay, I'm sending out the rest.

Aww. How awesome!!.  Surely that will be enough!.  I know your guests will love all the hard work you put into those invites!

 

I lucked up on stamps as my company was going to throw out a ton of forever stamps.. All I had to do was cut them off of envelopes, it may not look very neat, but hey, who can complain with free?..

 

I'm taking my test DIY passport invite and RSVP postcard to my fiance this weekend. Fingers crossed he approves so I can start printing them up next week. :o)

wow...you really lucked out with the stamps.  We're sending out 87 invitations.  Between the postage for the invite itself and for the RSVP, not to mention the save the dates that we sent out a few months ago, we've spent a small fortune on stamps.

Oh my! I can only imagine!.. To be honest, I don't even know how much stamps cost!.. And I hope I don't have to find out.. lol.. For our RSVP's I was going to include a stamp, but now I have decided against it.. I figured most people will RSVP through our website and I hated to waste stamps if people weren't going to return them. Another reason why I went with the postcards, no envelope needed for them to return them :o) and they can pay for a postcard stamp which is apparently cheaper than a normal stamp.

 

Are you sending invites to everyone? Or just the people you think will come?

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
