DIY - Boarding Pass/Save the Date

I discovered Aylee Designs a few years ago on the knot. Aylee Designs provides monograms and DIY Projects and templates. Aylee's boarding pass/save the date is absolutely beautiful and will catch the attention of your guests. This DIY Project is perfect for a destination wedding.

Materials (per set)
2 80lb cover stock 8.5×11
1 open-end envelope 4.125×9
1 28lb or lighter cover/cardstock (for template1 pocket) or 60lb cover/cardstock (for template2 pocket)
cutter, ruler, scissors, perforator, scoring blade or bonefolder, computer, printer, round-corner puncher (optional)

RecommendedRotary Paper Trimmer (cutter), Fiskars Perforating Rotary Blade (perforating blade to be used with Fiskars rotary trimmer), Round Corner Punch-Small (round corner puncher), Herma Dotto (adhesive), Classic Crest Solar White 80lb (paper), Classic Crest Recycled Bright White 80lb (recycled paper), Fiskars Scoring Blade (scoring blade to be used with Fiskars rotary trimmer)

Three passes can be printed on one 8.5″x11″ 80lb coverstock. Each pass is approximately 3.25″ x 8″. The left part is about 0.70″ and the right part is about 2″.

Aylee's template file has four pages. First page is the introduction. The second page has only the outline of the whole pass. You can add any content you want. Third page has some contents that she had such as those you see in the picture below. Fourth page is for the back of the passes that contain the text “NOT A VALID TRAVEL VOUCHER.” This can be changed. For the template and further instructions, click here.
