Trying to Gift a Surprise Trip?
Are you planning to give a surprise trip as a gift but you feel bad for not having anything physical to pack and hide? I know what you feel, I have been there too when I was trying to gift a Paris getaway to my girlfriend.
After thinking for quite a bit about how to do it, I crafted from scratch this Fake Boarding Pass Template in Powerpoint and I have to say it made for an awesome surprise.
If you think it might work for you too, download the file from the link below and I’ll explain to you how to customize it in the detail!
It’s super-easy! 🙂
Download Boarding Pass Template For Free
Click on the Button below to download the Boarding Pass Template.
Once done, just double-click to open it with Microsoft Powerpoint.
The template is only one slide, so when you’ll open the file this is the image you will see. I left you the instructions on how to use the boarding pass template right on the side of the tickets, for you to see.
Here, I will recap all the steps with a bit more details.
Step 1. Click on Anything you Want to Modify
The Boarding Pass Template is made to be easily customizable, you can simply click on ANY text and edit it to your preference.
You can translate it into other languages, change Titles, Name, Surname, Dates, Places of Interest, Departure, Arrival, Message, Hours as well as all the pagination texts.
Step 2. Personalize Colours and Fonts
You can change the color of the texts (although I would leave them black like an original airline boarding pass) and the boxes.
To change the background colors, simply click on the color, then click the tab “Format” and change the color with the option “Fill Color”.
STEP 3.1. ADD A CUSTOM QR CODE TO THE FAKE BOARDING PASS
A QR Code is a technological and unexpected way to surprise even more: when scanned, it can lead to a video-message, photo, text, or any URL you like…a surprise in the surprise!
To make your own, simply go on the website QR Code Generator, register (it’s free), decide what you want to encrypt, and once done, download the JPG of your QR Code and paste it right into its spot on the boarding pass.
STEP 3.2 aLTERNATIVELY, JUST PUT AN ICON OF YOUR DESTINATION
If QR is not your thing or you think it might be too complicated for the receiver to decipher, I suggest you simply put an icon of your destination onto the boarding pass template.
I prepared some for you on the file, if you find one that fits you can simply drag it onto the ticket.
If none is of your liking, you can just search on Flaticon one that fits your need (their library is huge and you don’t need to register).
Download it, paste it and it’s done 🙂
STEP 4. print YOUR BOARDING PASS GIFT ON cardboard
After double-checking for spelling mistakes, it is time to print your fake boarding pass.
I suggest you to use a harder paper to simulate the feel of a real boarding pass between the hands of the receiver (my girlfriend took some time to understand it wasn’t the original one).
If you’re not printing from home, simply save the boarding pass template as a PDF and bring it to the printing shop in that format on a USB.
Print, cut it carefully with scissors and you’re ready to go.
STEP 5. WRAP THE GIFT WITH CREATIVITY AND REVEAL THE SURPRISE TRIP
The cherry-top of the surprise, how do you give it to the other person?
Take out your creativity and find an original way to reveal your surprise!
Nothing is worse than ruining an awesome surprise with a boring delivery! 😉
