    Hi guys....I'm working on my save the dates and I am bewildered at how you guys get that little dip/groove on the right-hand side separating the smallest section from the main section...anyone know what I'm talking aboutt?! I've tried cutting it out by hand, but it looks TERRIBLE!!! Is there a die-cut that people are using? I have a corner-punch to round the edges....but can't figure out this peice.

    Thanks in advance!!

    PS--aside from this...I am sooo happy with how they turned out!! Can't wait to post some pics!!!

      I did the boarding pass thing to and you can get something called a preforator. We got it at JoAnn's but they have it at michaels to. Its kind of expensive but its a cool tool with multiple changes.

      I used this looks like blade you need-- Click the image to open in full size.

        I just used scissors, but I know there were some people who used nail clippers. If you have mulitple pages, I would recommend stapling or clipping/tying them together first, then cut out all the dips at once. That way they are perfectly even. Hope that helps

          I didn't make that little indent because most real airplane boarding passes don't have it. Seriously, I am OCD and looked at ones from AA, SWA, US and Delta. Pics in the thread below.

            Hey there, we used a small corner rounder (like a hole punch but for corners).
            We just folded back the small tab area (ours was on the left end) and then punched the corners out. Then when you flatten it back out, you have the indentation. It took a few practice tries to get it, but it worked perfectly after that. Also used a rotary blade to perforate the left & right stub-like ends of the ticket - made folding back the left end easy.

            one of these should work, just make sure you get size small:

            Good luck finishing! And don't forget to post pics when they're done!

              we used special small crafting scissors that are meant to get into little areas and cut really delicately. You can find them at any craft store!

                we used little scissors like your dad would use for nose hair, you know the ones! Almost like ones you would use for your eyebrows (minus a comb, of course). I have heard nail clippers work very well, too! :) good luck!
