    Thanks!  I'm hoping I will get to 150 before November....I'm at 33 or so now!  Wish me luck haha!!

        What size key holders did you end up buying? i'm worried about buying the wrong size and that the room key won't fit.  Anyone have any ideas?

        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 raslin

        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.

                I just purchased the ID badge holders. The regular size will fit the room key.
