    The corner cutter is key to professional looking STDs. I bought a cheap paper cutter for the straight edges but found cutting them out by hand after making the investment in good, somewhat expensive pair of scissors was better.

    I do not think you need another color. Your STDs look great!

        Hi girls- I went to dafonts.com...... I don't know where to go once you get there! there are a million links! I need help with a monogram/fonts so if anyone has any extra directions with that site I'd appreciate it!

          Amy-
          Go to Nature (in the Dingbat section). The ones used the most are WMTrees 1, and Hibiscus. Then go under Animals (also in the Dingbat section), the one I have seen used the most is WM Aquatic 1. Last but not least go under Various (also in the Dingbat section) and SC by the Sea is another good one to have. I would also really recommend copying into a word document the outline they give you of what each letter is. I had to refer back to it a number of times to make sure I was getting a starfish and not a shell. Hope this helps!

                I tried to take a peek at the template you posted but the system wouldn't allow me to access it. Saying something about not having adequate privileges. Would you know what this is all about and how I might be able to access it?
                Thanks,

                    If you use the Fiskar's cutter, just make sure that you run the blade down firmly (not too hard though) and then zip it back up the paper so that you cut any little bits that got missed and would keep the cut off pieces attached (you end up ripping paper, by trying to pull it apart).

                    I was lucky. I had a friend that just had a wedding and they purchased a really good deskjet. They let me borrow it so I saved some $$ that way. If you don't go the printer route, maybe you have some good friends! Otherwise, I agree with Carly about having them printed out.

                    Also, there are some good tropical prints from the — iDiY site that another BDW bride posted earlier today!

                    And the DaFonts has good fonts for adding things like a Hibiscus:

                    dafont.com

                    I was trying to use a hibiscus from dafont.com but, I was totally confused. Please explain how to use only hibiscus instead of the entire collection and how to add color to it??
