I have finally finished my invitations!  We are getting them printed now, and I wanted to share them :)


First, I really wanted to do Passport invites, but they looked like a LOT of work plus seemed pretty pricey!  So we went with boarding passes.



I got this from Paperandmore.com (Sidenote - if anyone wants to buy the A-1 RSVP envelopes from me, let me know as I'm not going to use them!  $11.99 is what I paid, plus shipping)


#10 Blueprint Blue Metallic Envelopes (50 Envelopes) -- (Quantity: 1)
Aqua Lagoon Metallic Paper 81# Text -- (Quantity: 1)
A-1 (4 Bar) Crimson Red Metallic 3 5/8 x 5 1/8 (50 Envelopes) -- (Quantity: 1)
Champagne Metallic Paper 80# (100 Sheets) -- (Quantity: 1)

$71.95 (with shipping)

The paper has a beautiful subtle shimmer and good weight.  I'm very pleased!  I had printed out test on regular paper, and you can really feel/see the difference!



I used the AyleeBits template (http://www.ayleebits...-save-the-date/) for the actual boarding pass.  It was kind of a pain to work with, but I ended up figuring it out :)


I used the jacket template with airplane from another member (I'm embarrassed to say I don't remember who...oops).  It was a powerpoint file, but I just saved as a PDF to print and worked out great.  I've attached the one I used (MH Invitation Jacket).


For the letter included on the boarding pass jacket/sleeve, I borrowed ideas from several people on this board, and combined :)  I've attached that template as well (MH Jacket Letter).



Other supplies:

  • I got the Silver Rayon Craft Ribbon on Amazon for about $6 (prime shipping).  It seems to have gone up to $10.50...ouch.  
  • I got the Seahorse charms on ebay for $4 for 40 of them (I also got 50 starfish for $1.50 for other paper projects, so this was a little pricey...in comparison? lol)
  • I got the brads on ebay for $7.22 for 34 of them - definitely not cheap, but I love the starfish!  I got 12 starfish, 12 sand dollars & 10 seashells (he only had 24 of the starfish/sand dollar combo).


Total Cost (with postage):  $3.13 cents per invitation!  Not bad, since I used higher end paper (without coupons, oops) and added the embellishments!  It also includes the crimson RSVP envelopes I'm not using, without those, they would have been $2.77 each shipped.  WOW.



And now...the pictures! :)  I just love the subtle shimmer of the paper, it's so pretty!

        These envelopes look great. These work great for homemade cards and invites. Thanks for offering a giveaway!
