Fully DIY from concept to exucation. Printed on cloud paper. Using the closet font to a fountian pen we could find. Folded in an Origmi airplane design. Had drawn “Just Married” sign tied on with silver string. RSVP card printed on packaged business cards. We folded them in half then the confetti when inside and the RSVP tucked under the wing. So when you pulled it out of the matching Cloud envelope the RSVP card fell out like cargo dropping.
Okay as promised here is the template, sorry it would not allow me to attach it.
Made this in Word, set your page to Landscape, Margins: top 0.5″, bottom 2.5″, left 2.5″ and right 0.3″ set your alignment to the Right Margin. Then start with the body of invitation the first line of text should be at 2.9″ and the last line at 5.5″ this allows it to fit in the body of the plane. For the names I used Word Art and just sized and angled until it fit right. Everything should line up to the right edge of the paper. Except the names, this you will have to just play around with depending on how long your names are.
Be ready to do some printing for practice. Fold a plane piece of printer paper into the airplane form then print a test page and just lined up to see where adjustments might need to be done. Most fonts work great just avoid any that are too large and don’t go above 14 pt. It was pretty easy the hardest part was the folding. Be sure to invest in a bond folder. I will try to update further with the folding template.
