    This may be a dumb question but what is a corner punch used for while doing your own STD boarding passes?

    Also what about a perferator? Do you get better quality using the perferator or not? I am not good a cutting a straight line and I have plenty of friends and family who would be more than willing to help but I am not sure what tools I will need.

    Help please

      I bought a corner punch but it turned out to be of a different shape than my template. Looking back, I would have designed a straight, rectangular ticket and then used the corner punch instead of having to do a lot of hand cutting with scissors (took forever).

      I also bought a rotary paper trimmer - I used it to cut everything. It helped to get things straight but it wasn't always the easiest. I got a extra blade to score the sleeves. They were out of the perforator adapter but it was ok as I just printed dotted lines on the tickets instead.

      Overall, I found the whole process time consuming and frustrating. I'm supper OCD about things perfect and this was not a perfect result, but it's pretty good. Since you have people willing to help, it should be much easier for you!

      Good luck!

        Go to any scrapbooking/craft store and they should be able to help you find exactly what you need. Essentially a corner rounder is exactly what it's called .... it rounds the corner of something that was at an angle.

            FiskarsCrafts.com A new way to look at crafting online!

            That's the one that I used. The smaller of the two corners worked perfectly. I bought it at Michael's. If you go online, you can print up a 40% off coupon for any single item purchased at the store.

              That's an awesome tool! Too bad I didn't see it when I was there!

                Hey Everyone.... well I was wondering what kind of paper I could use for the boarding passes? I also got a cricut. I wonder if I could use that to cut out the shape of the boarding pass? What do you all think?

                  I used a heavier paper, I think it was cardstock.
