      I want to do passport invitations... But there is so much info that I'm not sure which way to turn... Lol.. Should I do it myself.? Do I have what it takes to do it myself? Should I order them on etsy? I have never shopped on etsy before so I am so reluctant... Ugh... And I want the invites to look a lil elegant (to please my mom)... She wants me to do traditional invites, but I absolutely refuse to spend that kind of money... No, no, no... ** venting**

      I'm sure u can do it. I didn't feel crafty enough to do theem.so I had them done

        Ive ordered on etsy b4, they pay through paypal which will always protect you. I did my own passport invites bc im not paying $190 for 30 invites on etsy. Cost me $47 in total to do 50 invites with rsvp cards and envelopes.

        Wow... Now that's what I'm talking about Moody... My kind of price... I need upwards of 150 invites.... That would be less than 200...

        I bought the envelopes online but michaels sells them cheap also. I got the cutter, paper, corner edger and scoring board all at michaels and used the coupons. I used 65lb cardstock for the covers and rsvps and parchment paper for the inside sheets

          Omg... You are scaring me with all of those purchases... Lol... But thank you for that info. i am going to start collecting Michael's coupons now... but I wouldn't even know what to do with them... Once I am able to open the templates, will they have step by step directions?? Or do you know of any threads that's have step by step directions??

                I love eBay!!! I purchased all my wedding supplies from eBay and I've spent less than $200....I even found my wedding dress on eBay for $226, new never worn and tags attached (orig price $1,600), the same exact dress I tried on in a top bridal shop..... there is a seller on eBay who's a nonprofit and top bridal salons donate discontinued dresses to them and the process go to help women with breast cancer. So I get a new designer dress for cheap while helping an awesome cause!!!

                Wow, excellent deal..Awesome that you can get a deal and help out a worthy cause win win!!

                That is going to look so beautiful on the beach..Great that you can reuse cut corners when we can..
