    I have already printed and started on my boarding pass save the dates but am having trouble with the perferator I bought it is a small almost square like circular perferator.

    Any brides out there DIY and what did you use?

    I am especially having trouble with the jackets I cant cut a straight line to save my life.

    Any tool suggestions?

    This is going to take longer than I thought at the rate I'm going.

    if your perforator is a handheld, just dump it. They are miserable to work with.

    Get a Michael's coupon and go pick up a rotary trimmer with a perforating blade. At 40% off you can probably find something for under $20. Something like this would be fine, just make sure it's long enough to fit the width of the cut you're wanting to make (so if you've got 8-1/2x11 paper, and you're cutting the short length, then 9 inches is enough. If the other way, go with a 12-inch cutter.

    Good luck!

      Thanks I appreciate it I actually bought the same item but the cutter not the perferator and it works great. I will go back and look for the perferator.
