    Hey girls,
    I first want to say thank you for the boarding pass idea...i absolutly love them and everyone i show them to has loved them more!!! So thanks...i need more help with them though....or suggestions...did you girls print them on linen card stock or regular card stock...also did you print them on colour cardstock or just white? which looks better? Also i was at Michaels Craft Store and cannot find the corner cutters...i think maybe because i don't know exactly what im looking for? Would someone be able to post a picture of their actual corner cutter? So i can have a better reference? I woudl really appreciate it...also i guess if anyone has one they would like to sell to me? Maybe that is a possibility if you are done with it? lol....not sure how they will work? Where i am goign to get them printed they will cut them out but just straight edges along the dotted line but they can't do edges? Any help/suggestions for me? thanks so much

        I haven't done mine yet, so no suggestions on the type of paper. I just bought my corner cutter and perforator this weekend. I bought the cutterpede paper cutter, which has an addition you can use to perforate. The corner cutter I bought is just like a shape puncher (if I remmber right, I bought ALOT of stuff). I don't have a picture, but if you go to Michael's again, all of that should be in the aisle together with the whole punchers that have shapes (flowers, circles, etc).

        When I went to Michael's for this a few weeks ago, they didn't ahve ANYTHING, then this weekend a whole aisle, so perhaps they are updating their merchandise....

          My corner rounder is from Creative Memories. You can go to their site and find a rep near you, or you can check on Ebay for one, here is one for a really good deal with other things as well. eBay.ca: Creative Memories Scallop Scissors Corner Rounder Pen (item 140175746650 end time 07-Nov-07 12:00:31 EST) Since our dollar is so good right now, ebay is a great place to look for things.

            i used regular card stock in the "natural" shade. i thought the white gave too much contrast which i didn't like. my colors were orange and green. i found my corner cutters at target for $1! it was in the stationary/scrapbooking section.

            i had mine printed at kinko's and cut each one myself. it was tedious but i didn't want to pay to have them cut. i bought a nice fiskar's paper cutter and a good pair of shears and it was fine.

            here's an picture of my finished product:

              How did you get the round corners on both sides (inside and outside) of the edge? Did you just cut out a triangle piece and then round the corners? Does this make sense? The part on the left, perforated side that is supposed to be discarded if it were a real boarding pass....

                I printed mine on regular, white card stock. I didn't use corner cutters just because I didn't think about it! Actually, I cut corners on the ones for people who would appreciate it, and left them rectangle-shaped for those would wouldn't (aka, his friends) .

                  i did that part by hand.. if there was an easier way to do it i couldn't figure it out.
