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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
