Hi All,

I've taken enough from this forum so now it's time for me to start giving back. I am attaching the template for our key card holders. I hope it's helpful to someone.

This is how I made them:

1.) I borrowed (downloaded) a template that someone had posted on here (Sorry but I don't remember who). I think raslinhuh.gif

2.)I changed the word (from Jamaica) to one of our engagement photos.

3.) I tweaked the colors to fit us.

4.) I printed them out on a colored laser printer on white cardstock from Walmart. It was about $6.00 for a ream.

5.) I glued the cardstock to construction paper to help become even more sturdy.

6.) I cut the lines with a paper cutter.

7.) Then I inserted each cutout into a waterproof plastic pouch that I bought off ebay from gcishoponline. The cost was $5.99 for 50 plus $5.00 for shipping. Total was $10.99.

8.) We purchased lanyards from the same ebay seller. The cost was $12.99 for 50 with free shipping. We also purchased wristband/coil key chains and beltclip key chains because we wanted our guests to have a choice. The costs for them was supercheap--$2.99 for 12 coils and $2.99 for 50 beltclips on Oriental Trading.

I also ordered 200 lanyard snaps fro $2.99 from Oriental Trading so it would be easier to put the pouches on the wrist coils.

This is enough material to make 50 keycard holders for less than $1.00 each.

I have attached the template. I'm sorry I couldn't attach a pic but someone stole my digital camera and I have yet to buy another one.

Let me know if you have any questions.

 

EDIT-The pics are at post #16.
