          Island Girl - they are just brooch pins - you can get them at any craft shop, or on ebay. They look like this:

              verrry carefully. hahaha


              We flew with West Jet, which at the time allowed 2 checked bags, on carry-on per guest. We had 5 bags between hubby and I, so we gave one to the Best Man to bring for us.

                I'm a graphic designer so I made the bookmarks using Adobe Illustrator. I also have contacts in the print industry who were happy to print them, laminate them and cut them for me. But really anyone could make them!


                You could use Powerpoint or even Word. Just design the bookmarks in text boxes and leave the text box marked out so you know where to cut them out of the regular sized paper. Then you could print them on glossy cardstock, but I recommend having them printed at Office Depot on card stock and laminated there as well. Laminating them makes them look very professional and last longer. Then you (or office depot) can trim them using a paper cutter. I love this paper cutter http://fiskarspapercutter.com/ you can only do one page at a time, but its more accurate than the guillotine-type cutters.


                After they are cut out, I used a scrapbooking corner punch to round the corners, this is what I used: http://www.123stitch...?item=01-001448 Then I used a hole punch for the ribbon hole, tied some ribbon through it and voila!


                I get all my supplies at craft stores like Michaels.


                Happy Planning!

                Thanks for the tips. I'm from the UK, so we don't have an Office Depot, but my future SIL makes invitations etc, so she should be able to get the card and my sister is a teacher, so she has a laminating machine for her school stuff! I'll give it a try.

                  GREAT JOB! I can't wait for your wedding blog! I definitely need a tutorial on how you made the wedding flower/ribbon decorations.
