    Aww thanks Lovely Gemini,

     

    Yes I totally feel the savings were worth it and i got exactly what i wanted!! I hated assembling them but once they were all done, i felt this satisfaction of giving my guests a personal invitation (literally). I think you should def try to make them, it's not hard at all, just takes time. you could make it your summer project and i'm here if you need any tips or advice.

        That's really sweet of you MissJali! Thank you for offering. I have to get moving to be able to send mine out ASAP, considering my wedding is only about a month after yours. I'll probably invoke bridesmaid and MOH duties to help assemble them (my own little bridal party sweatshop, haha). Where did you find the materials for the actual passport book? Specifically, the outer cover and the interior pages? And you printed nearly everything on your home printer? I remember reading you got the flatcards printed through Vistaprint.

          Lovely Gemini,

           

          I most certainly did print almost everything at home. I got the cardstock for the passport cover from paperandmore.com and the parchment paper from both paperandmore.com and staples. The one problem I had was not allocating for the amount of ink I would need. I needed about 1.5 ink cartridges so I had to reprint some of the passport pages as it was a little faded after the first run.

              What kind of printer do you have?

                  What size were your postcards? Did you send them out first before the passport books?

                  I'm going to borrow your ideas ha ha...thank you so much for sharing!!!!!!
