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.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
