My DIY Passport Invitations and RSVP Postcard with Pics

Recommended Posts

Since I have been sharing all of my DIY projects, I decided why not share my Passport Invites! I designed these myself with a little help from the basic template found at Aylee Bit's Passport template. I really ended up changing so much from the template, but it was a good start!


I have to thank the girls on here for sharing so much of their own things. I gathered so many ideas and then compiled them into an invite that most represented me and my FI. 



Brown Kraft Paper Envelopes- Michael's

Map Print Out- google and my home printer

RSVP Postcard- Vistaprint

Paper Cutter- already owned

Double Sided Tape- Target

Wax (for wax seal on envelope)- Michael's

Wax "W" Stamp- Michael's

Return Address Stamp- Etsy

Avery Labels- Staples

Home Printer

TIME... lots of time!


This is the front of the envelope:




For the Address Label I designed a design with passport stamps to get the feel of "travel" and "destination." Then I opened Word and opened the Avery Template Design Wizard. (When you buy Avery Labels, the directions on how to DL the Wizard on the package.) Then I clicked on Insert and then chose Insert Picture. I chose the design I had created with the passport stamps. Then, so that I didn't have to hand write each name and address I added a text box and typed each name and address. Then I printed them... fairly simple. This took a little trial and error and some time, but it was worth it. 


Here is a close up of the lower right corner of the design where you can see I personalized it with our date and location:






This is the inside of the envelope as it looks with the invite in it:




I searched for a map of Mexico on Google. One I found one I liked, I trimmed it down to an appropriate size, printed it, and cut it to fit inside the envelope. This took a LOT of time.... Then I used double sided tape to tape the map to the inside flap to spruce up the envelope. (I got this idea from someone on this forum but of course I do not remember who... sorry!)


This is the back of the envelope:




I ordered the Return Address Stamp off of Etsy and the seal is a wax seal with a "W" for my new last name!



Here is a picture of the invite as it looks when it's pulled out of the envelope:




You can see the actual invite and behind that is our RSVP Postcard. I printed strips of the same Mexico map and wrapped it around the Invite and the RSVP to hold them together. 


Here is a picture of the outside of the Invite:





I didn't take pictures of the inside of the Invite, but here are screen shots of the design:











Obviously these all look like different sizes, etc and like they don't line up but that's bc they are screen shots. The actual invites came out so nice! :)








Here is the RSVP:






I designed the postcard myself and then uploaded it to Vistaprint. 


That's it! Hope you enjoyed my Invites and RSVP's and they were helpful to you in some way. I can't even tell you how many compliments we got on them. On this forum they are popular, but as a guest- people have never seen anything like this so it was very unique and everyone really loved them.


Good luck with your own invites and let me know if you have any questions! :)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
