        I am making the ones that have been on here with the zippered pouch so everything can stay in safely. I bought them on ebay for about $10 for 15. I haven't actually done the inserts yet but i am just going to use word. You can go into the label maker part and pick some business card or name badge ones and it will set up a template for you. Then just do you design. You can usually buy business cards and such at wal-mart or staples for a reasonable price. If you search key card holders on here you can see some good examples and they usually have templates attached. I do not have enough points however to download them. I know that a lot of people ordered the coil keyrings from oriental trading for cheap. We do not have many guest so I am just going to go to the hardware store to get mine. Also, many people ordered there business cards from vistaprint. I would if I had a lot to make but since I only need 13 I will just do them myself. If you haven't used vistaprint they are very good. I used them for my bags and I am super happy with them. Hope this helps I know it is a little jumbled! Let me know if you have specific questions!

          Thank you so much. You have been so helpful. I'm also having a small DW and only need about 10 of everything.

              I have read that other brides have designed business cards on Vistaprint and used them for inserts in their key card holders. If you sign up for Vistaprint (which does result in many emails so be sure you use your "spam" email), they will send you weekly specials so you could potentially get your custom cards for free! www.vistaprint.com

                  I am having that same problem. I am going to try looking online at Staples and other office supply stores. Good luck with your search!

                    I've read on here that a many brides found the plastic on ebay. Here is a link that I found for you:
                    http://bestdestinati....-holder-56453/

                    If you can't open it, go to the DIY forum or the OOT bag forum; once the thread is open, click on "Search this thread" and a drop box will appear, then type in "key card holder". I have a template I can email you if you need one.

                      Here is where I got mine :

                      Key and Tip holders - bought the badge holders from Office Depot they were 12 for $5.49, the lanyards were purchased from Pouch-n-Coil 25 for $9.95. I used Staples matte white business cards and then glued them to the black cardstock.

                      Good luck!
