Make Your Own Passport Wedding Invitations

What You'll Need:
  • plain white 8.5 x 11 cardstock
  • decorative or handmade paper
  • ribbon, cording, or twine
  • your computer printer and PDF reader

Start by downloading and printing our passport destination wedding invitations template.

make passport wedding invitationsYou will need the latest version of Adobe Reader to view and interact with the template. Don't worry - Adobe Reader is available by free download on the internet if you happen to not have it installed.

Save a copy of the file to your computer in a spot that you will remember to find it later should you need to print more or make any changes.

Remember, the interactive templates will only work with the fonts you currently have installed on your computer. So if you open the file and it looks a bit funny, it may just mean that you do not have the same fonts I used to create the file.

Print the file onto some 8.5 by 11 white or cream colored cardstock. The file is meant to be printed back to back. You can keep the file as a simple 4 page booklet or go all out and save a second copy of the file (change the name) to print two pages!

Use the handy guidelines included in the template to cut the invites down to create a 5 by 7 passport (booklet) invitation. For the very best results I recommend stacking the invitation papers with the decorative paper when cutting so that both papers will come out exactly the same size. Otherwise you will end up trimming the edges to get everything to line up perfect and it can get really messy!

I find an easy way to do it is to simply fold the papers together and then go over the crease with a bone folder to smooth it out.

For a nice finished touch you can go a bit further and use a paper punch to create rounded corners. I used a corner rounder from Fiskars.

To finish off the passport destination wedding invitations simply open up the booklets all the way and tie the binding with a bit of ribbon, tying a bow on the outside cover spine. I like to dab on a little bit of permanent adhesive glue runner right where the bow will sit to hold things tightly in place.

You're done! What you've created is a very simple yet elegant wedding invitation that is relatively easy to make!

  • For a great faux vintage touch for any destination wedding invitations is to use some distressing ink to make the pages look old and faded. The best way to add a little bit of distressing ink to a page is to use a makeup sponge. Press the sponge lightly into the ink and then squish it into the sponge by folding it in half. Lightly apply the ink to the edges of the pages and working over the surface and edges.
