    Wow ladies! I can't believe these are finally done.  They took a lot of work, but I think they are so worth it in the end.  I was even at a scrapbook store yesterday to pick up some supplies and the manager saw them and asked if I wanted to teach a class! Ha ha. I said no thanks, but please check out this web site.  Thanks so much to everyone before me who posted ideas.  I took a bit from everyone, and even a quote from SexyT. Thanks so much girls for the inspiration.

     

    I used AyleeBits template for the actual boarding pass. It took a few hours on word to figure out how to do things, but I finally did it!  I really loved the website www.dafont for the starfish, palm tree and flip flop clip arts.  I think most of them are tropicanaBV font.  Make sure to watch the youtube video if you don't know how to import font. It really helped me!  I also imported some pretty script that I didn't have on my computer.

     

    I found the AyleeBits template for the pocket holder to be somewhat confusing so I just made my own. I simply divided a regular sheet of pearlized paper into 3 even sections and cut off an edge at a diagonal to make the pocket piece. I would suggest using scrapbooking double sided tape that is very narrow to glue down the pocket.  The smaller the better as anything thick makes it hard to slide your boarding pass into the pocket. Also, this is where a boner tool (used to make your creases) comes in handy, as well as a good ruler.I had them laser printed at Kinko's for $.59 a page! Hope this all helps! Thanks again to everyone who gave me ideas!

     

    Tools:

    I found the best tool ever to be the friskars rotary tool.  I used the regular blade as well as the perferated blade.  You will need this to bend back your left edge to round the corner and make it have that cut out look, or the divet.  This is an expensive tool, but if you use a 40% off coupon at Micheal's it makes it manageable.

    You need a good corner punch, spend a couple extra dollars for the good one and it prevents blisters. Do it to each corner, and then fold back your perferated edge and do it to those corners for your divet.

    Boner tool-I used Martha Stewart brand from Micheals

              Your STDs are truly spectacular! Quick question: Did you print the template directly onto the magnetic sheets? Sorry for the silly question. Thank you.
