Now that it is officially May, I am wrapping up my pre-travel mailers and getting them ready to send out tomorrow. (My wedding is June 28, but there is one thing I want my guests to really enjoy for a few weeks before the wedding!)

 

Included in my mailer:

-a double sided "notecard" that I designed myself and printed through Vistaprint for free with info about traveling, etc

-a magnet to hold the notecard to the fridge (I also designed this myself and printed through Vistaprint for free)

-a CD with a compilation of "Get Ready!" songs chosen by the wedding party in a DIY "case" that I made from left over kraft paper cards

-2 DIY Luggage tags/person (here is the link to my luggage tags: 

 

 

Close up of front of CD case:

 

Back of CD case: (sorry the picture quality is awful)

 

 

Here is the file so you can actually see what the songs are:

 

 

 

And this is the front:

Back of the note card:

 

 

Close up of luggage tag front: (the magnet looks just like this as well)

Front of the envelope:

 

 

Back of the envelope:

 

Here is just a quick snapshot of all the envelopes:

 

 

 

What do ya'll think? I think the guests will really like the CD. It's an idea I got from this forum and as soon as I saw it, I just knew I wanted to do it. 

 

Happy Planing, ladies! Any questions, just let me know!

This helped- otherwise price and time devoted to this project could start to add up. However, I printed some of the things on Vistaprint for free, I had 10 blank CD's (so I only had to buy a few), and I used left over kraft paper cards/envelopes for the CD case and the actual mailer envelope. The supplies for the luggage tags weren't really that expensive, either! Anyway.. on with the pics!

              Hi Megan,

              I have been coming back to your posts constantly for tips for a while now..you did such an amazing job!

              I'm wondering how you did  your pre-travel tips for free on vistaprint?  I go to the site, then to note cards, and all I see are decorative cards.  Do  you even remember what you did?  I think this idea is amazing, and I'd love to do it myself.

              Thanks in advance!

                Hi Megan!

                I absolutely love your cd cases!! I might have to steal that idea! And if you don't mind me asking, how were you able to score the magnets for free on Vistaprint?
