    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!
