    Alright ladies I have officially finished my invitations!! I sent them out today and couldn’t wait to share them with all of you! Every bride on this site is so inspiring and I have learned so much from so many of you! So thank you for all your help because I couldn’t have made these invites without you!

    For our save the dates I made a luggage tag magnet and to continue the travel theme I decided on passport invitations with a boarding pass for the RSVP. I used the alyeebits template in word and let me tell you I struggled. It took me forever (it felt like) to get everything right and lined up. I worked through it and I am really happy with my result! On to the good stuff……

     

     

     

    I used a green linen card stock paper for the cover and twine to bind it.

     

    The paper inside was a crazy find in my area……the Kelly paper store in upland, ca. I purchased a whole ream for $9! It’s a 65lb cream vellum paper, it worked great and my printer liked it too!

     

     

     

     

     

    The RSVP boarding pass is a linen metallic cream color (the pic doesn’t do it justice) It’s a beautiful paper! On the back I printed our address and put a stamp in the corner. I also perforated the end piece so the guest will tear off the “passenger receipt “ and mail the rest in as a postcard!

     

     

     

    The sleeve is a piece of scrapbook linen paper  I found at Joanne's that I folded and cut.

     

     

     

    I purchased the envelopes at the same upland store they were a champagne opal color. I made the envelope seals at home they were 1 ½ inch in diameter.

     

    The finished result! I made 45 invites and I am soooo happy to cross this off the list!! Thanks for reading! Let me know if you have any questions, I am happy to help!

     

    There are so many brides that have done a wonderful job on passport invites and you have helped me so much! Thank you!!

      Oh I almost forgot the best part......with all supplies, paper, ink, etc., the cost per invite was approximately $1.80 an invite! Not including postage. Hope this helps if anyone's toying with the idea of DIY invites....go for it!
