LESSON LEARNED while making Boarding Pass Invitations

Recommended Posts

I started working on my Boarding Pass invitations yesterday but wanted to share a lesson I learned...in the hopes it will help others. (i will post pics once complete).

There is an area on the boarding pass that is perforated...so we bought a handy little perforator tool at Micheals and I went about perforating them. Well, without realizing it, I was pressing down too hard on the perforator, and i tore (MANY TIMES) through my table-cloth, but more importantly, I actually scratched numerous times my dining room table (it went right through the tablecloth). I had originally tried to do it on something spongy, but i found that the cut was too deep, and it was actually tearing the pieces apart...so the consistency of the table worked well - EXCEPT for the damages now caused - YIKES!!! Thought I'd share this to others can avoid this same problem.

 

Other than that - it was a great project, and I loved all the advice and template ideas I got from the site :)

Thanks for the advice! I know I would have done the same type of damage!!

I am so excited for when I get to make mine.

 

And I am not a DIY kind of girl. But everyone on here has motivated me to take on this project.

 

Can't wait to see pics!!!

I would suggest a self-healing mat. You can get them at most craft stores. They're firm and won't leave dents in it.. sorry about your table but I'm sure the girls appreciate learning about it before they started.

If you're using a cutterpede or another type of paper cutter, many of them (at least the rotary/wheel types) have a perforating blade.

 

I went this route and it was really very easy - plus, perfectly straight lines!

Good to know! Plus I was wondering where to get the perforator tool at too, thanks! I think Home Depot has those wood pens, you might be able to cover up the scratches...Good luck!

I agree with Becks. I used a cutterpede with the perforating blade and it was so easy. In fact, it was my favorite part.

I'm really sorry to hear about your table and tablecloth. That's annoying!

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
