Hi Ladies,

 

I have purchased this corner puncher

 

700

 

I am having a lot of trouble with getting a nice rounded edge for my passport invites.  Has anyone used one like this before? Or have I purchased the wrong tool?  This is what the outcome is for me....

 

700

 

HELP!!!!sad.gif

Is there just one hole for the paper to slide into? Did it come with instructions?

 

Hmmm... it looks as though you have purchased a reverse hole punch.

 

I'm not familiar with that item. But I would highly suggest taking a 40% off coupon and taking a trip to Hobby Lobby. ;o) They have 2 sizes and they aren't but a few dollars.

Thanks Britney!  I actually just found another thread on this hole punch and I have purchased the wrong one completely - silly me? lol.  But good to know a few other brides did the same thing, and I am not alone on this.  I totally wish I could go to Hobby Lobby - I live in Canada, no hobby lobby sad.gif.  I'm wondering if there is one in Buffalo, NY as I am heading there for Black Friday!

Oh no.. I had a feeling though. it happens.

 

 hmm... Surely there is.. If not, check out ebay. ;o)  I too will look to see if I see anyone online that ships to Canada for a fair price.

I am also in Canada, definitely check out Michaels for a corner punch (take a 40% or 50% off coupon with you on your smart phone or print it off their site). Also some Walmart's have better craft departments than others and they may have one in their scrapbooking area.

 

Good Luck!

 I would say Hobby Lobby.. but since you don't have one... I'll have to see if I can find sites that ship to Canada since Im not sure if HL does or not. hmm... There is also a place I am thinking of that sells real touch flowers online. I'll let you know as soon as I find the site.

Thanks MissBubbles, I found White rose petals on ebay, $30 for 60.  So I ordered 120, which should be more than enough for all 9 bouquets, 9 Bout.'s and 3 corsages.  In total I have spent around $120 in supplies for my entire floral needs!  My quote from Bloom Bridal was close to $800.  What a savings and I get to enjoy making my bouquets, bout.'s & corsages just as I want them :)

I've purchased a Fiskars corner punch as well.  Mine works, but the punch is not always as "clean" as I would like.  I sometimes I have to punch on it twice on cardstock.
Good to know, thank you I have returned the one I originally purchased. And was going to buy the same brand in the one I need (not that I know the difference). But I was also looking at the Martha Stewart one, we shall see! Anyone have any suggestions on one thu have used and liked?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
