Hi Crystal,

 

If you head to Michaels, there should be a few options there. You bought a special punch for photo matting (the corners of your photos are supposed to fit in those "silly lines). What I think you're looking for is a simple round corner punch. Ask one of the associates at Michael's to give you a hand- they should know exactly what you're talking about. :) Best of luck to you!

Thanks!!

 

But I think I found one that'll work at Walmart on the weekend!

I actually took it out of the package right in the store LOL I know I shouldn't of done that, but I don't need 10 different punches that don't work lol

But this looks like I found what I am looking for, and it was $5

Okay so I have another question for those of you that have done Boarding Pass STDs/Invites.

I got the Corner Punch down pat now (Printed out some test pages). Works great!

But how did you cut out the other parts? The straight edges were a breeze, but what about the little indents? (Like curved triangles...u know what I'm talking about right? lol) I cant' seem to get that looking very good. Any tips would be great. Thanks!

I have the exact same questions as you do :). I read on a thread somewhere that they cut those triangle pieces (indents) with an exacto knife. I haven't tried it yet, but its a suggestion.

hey crystal, didn't see your question till now!

 

i actually used nail clippers to make those little cuts. it took me FOREVER and i too tried to use an exacto knife but it ended up just ripping through the paper and it looked gross! i also saw in one thread that a girl used those cuticle clippers, but since i don't have those i used the regular clippers and they worked great! i hope that helps!

And this is how it punches, it makes the corner round but also punches these two silly lines! (just testing on a piece of paper I printed):

Ahaha. I accidentally bought that punch (not understanding the picture) and then freaked out when it had lines it in. I ended up using one from Hobby Lobby I think. They only had two sizes, small and large. I bought the small bit think the large would have worked better. Good luck!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
