So I love Sarah's programs from Aylee and I really want to do them, I just spend about two hours designing the basics and then I printed them out on just regular paper and wow, if I actually had to cut out the little blades for each program on cardstock my hands might fall off...
so is there an easier way to cut out all of these things?

here is Sarah's just in case you have no idea what the heck I am talking about!

so any advice would be appreciated, I am down to 2 1/2 months and want to get these sorts of things out of the way before the last minute stuff gets to be too much.

    I haven't made these, but I made 60 Boarding Pass STDs so I understand your pain.
    Tips:
    -Get a rotary cutter. It will allow you to cut a clean straight line along the 4 major edges of the blade.
    -Try an edge rounding hole puncher. I got one from the stamp store. You just put the corner of the paper in it and it turns it into a rounded edge.

    Hope these tips help! (At least until Sarah gets here and gives you the real goods!)

    I have yet to go to the craft store for everything, I just don't really like the other types of programs...I want something unique or nothing at all.

      Well, I only had to make 20 so it wasn't too bad, but I did cut every single blade out individually by hand with a pair of scissors. I usually did it sitting in front of the tv at night, so I really didn't notice how long it took. You also don't need to do as many blades as I did. This pic is just my mock-up. In the "real" one, there are actually 6 and 6 really is alot! You probably could get everything on 3 or 4, maybe you've already done that.

      I wish I had a magic answer for you, but nope! Kate's suggestion of using a cutter for the long edges is good...that way you could probably do a couple at a time.
