    Hi everyone,

    So my boarding pass invites were essentially plagiarized right off this site so i am not posting those, however, i did one thing to make mine a bit different that I thought others may like!

    I was stuck on how to put them together, and while at the fabric store saw some hot pink gromets, and decided that i would use those to attach them. (There were other colours too)

    All you need is a 1 hole punch, the grommets, and the little tool to put them together. I got 35 grommets for $0.25 cents, and the tool cost $1.25. Each one took a few seconds, honestly! I was then able to cut the corners off the passes very easy after the grommet was in, since they couldn't shift!

    So here is what it looked like in the end, but it was a great alternative to stapling, and people love the fact that they can't lose any of the pieces. The pic isn't terrific, but hopefully it works!

    Anyways, i thought i would share! Hope it helps someone else out!

              I got them at a general fabric-store here in Vancouver called Dressew... but i am sure any fabric store would have them. I have seen them at paper stores too, but for like $7.00!!! For the exact same thing...

                I read somewhere that you should use a rubber hammer to force the tool to seal the grommet... does that make sense? Did you use one, or just manually force it close?

                    I didn't need a rubber hammer, just the teeny tiny little metal tool... i actually tapped the back of some of them with a hammer to make them super tight, so i guess a rubber hammer could help... but you really don't need one!
