Hi Ladies,

 

This is a very rough draft of my passport invites so far, I will update this thread as I go, just wanted to help any of you out confused with this template or printing in general.

 

I used Aylee free template for these, which gives a good base to start with, quite a bit of rearranging is needed once you have your pages completed. You don't just simply print page 2 on page 3, ect. like the instructions say.  I am glad I started these really early when I did to give myself some time to figure them out.

 

This was what I found the easiest way to figure out printing/getting it all organized.

 

I wrote down how many pages I needed, once i had my sub-titles for each page, I took blank scrap paper and put them into a booklet type assortment like the passport invite would be. like so:

 

 

 After I knew where I wanted everything, i than set out each "page" so see what needed to be where on the computer for printing.  Don't Forget to write front and back on "scrap paper."

 

 

This honestly helped me so much, I don't know if it was Aylee's template or what but I couldn't figure out what needed to be where for printing.

Anyways here are my very ROUGH Passport Invites, please let me know what you think and anything I have forgotten or that should be changed.  Also any questions for those having issue's feel free to ask :)

 

(The cover of my passports will be a dark purple and our names are written in white along the palm tree, where you see the "&", which you can't see because this sample is printed on white paper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And last but not least a shout out to all you wonderful brides who have gave me some inspiration and continue to always do so! xoxox Kay

          Nice! Thank you for the tip. We're barely in the early stages of working on our passports too!

                this is a great idea. I started my rough draft for my passport invitations to show my FMIL and i noticed the same thing with this template. My mother and I have been ripping our hair out trying to figure out the correct order!

                I'm glad this helps! If you have any questions, let me know. I know how hard it was trying to figure it out before I came up with this alternative to help. Good luck:)
