In a natural follow-up to my passport Save-The-Dates, I made mock boarding passes for my wedding invitations. (Wasn't sure whether to start a new thread or just tack it onto the STD thread, but decided since I have all these pictures to go ahead and start a new one)
These were made and sent off in a frenzy of hectic activity right before I left for a month-long clerkship abroad in Shanghai (from whence I am finally posting this project!), and while I would have done a few things differently (mostly fiddled with tiny details) had I had more time, overall I think they turned out how I envisioned them.
The front of the invitations--cardstock ticket holders with our names, date, and the chinese double happiness characters Gocco'd in gold ink. Incidentally, this is the only one for which I did the ribbon accent. It was one of the details I skipped on the rest due to time constraints. I was down to putting ribbons on invites or...packing for my month-long clerkship, basically. Yes, it was just that last-minute.

The fronts of the boarding pass pages--I heavily modified a template I found on theknot to match my corner rounder, printer, etc. The map on page 2 was the product of quite a bit of time spent in PhotoPlus. You can't tell from the pictures (and probably no one will notice) but the pages are perforated like "real" boarding passes.
The backs of the invite pages--I stole the idea for the back of the response card from several craftsters and flickrers, and the page is perforated to form a little response postcard. I'm a little sad that I'm not around at home to get responses as they roll in.
The pile of invites--I used a variety of double-sided cardstocks for the ticket envelopes and you can kind of see how they show through the vellum envelopes. I was pretty excited about getting to use the vellum envelopes (which I had bought on clearance and had been hoarding.)

Now with the invites sent, I just have to shop for a wedding dress...

Hello!  I absolutely love our invitations.  I was thinking about doing the boarding passes as our Save the Dates, but after seeing your post, I think I will do them as the invites!  I was wondering where you found the paper that is double sided reading "Love bears all things..."?  Or do you know who makes it? 

Thanks and fabulous job!

ju1ie107, thank you! the "Love bears all things" paper was included in a wedding-themed variety cardstock pad from A. C. Moore--two sheets of that and several other lovely patterns.

Hello Again,
I just finished my passport save the dates. I have been looking for some double sided paper to help make them better but couldn't find any in my color scheme. I love your boarding passes and wondered if you had a turorial on how you folded the holders. Thank you for all of your help. Mandee Grin Grin Smiley

I love your invitation ideas! I need to start thinking about invitations real soon and ALL of our guests but about 4 will be flying in.  I may just have to use your ideas!  I hope you don't mind.  I'm not so great at crafting with paper so they definitely won't be as professional looking as yours.  so creative!

This idea is absolutely wonderful!  Your invitations are more beautiful than the ones I've seen online that cost a fortune!  I know this posting is old and you're probably tired of answering, but could you please instruct me on creating this idea?  I'd love to send these out as my wedding invitation.  Is that possible?

toastie, the mechanics of making these are actually pretty simple--you need cardstock for the "holders" and cardstock for the "passes"--each "holder" is an 8.5x11 sheet folded up and glued in thirds with a diagonal slit to put the passes in (see my photos).
The "passes" are each 1/3rd of an 8.5x11 sheet--like I mentioned I modified a template I found on theknot. I used a corner rounder to get the rounded corners but you could use scissors as well.
To get them to come out right just takes a bit of experimenting with your printer (i.e. lining everything up), ink, stamps...good luck!
