Boarding Pass Invites...Corner Cutters HELP!!

also - make sure to do this BEFORE perforating or they will snap off!
You are too smart, I would never have thought of that. Great thinking.

I didn't see an actual picture - so maybe this will help:

I bought it all at Michael's - the paper cutter is the Cutterpede with one attachment for perforating and one for scoring (which - I didn't know before this project, but just creates a crease so the paper folds and makes a sharp line).


The paper cutter is the black thing - I found mine on all same aisle as all the paper hole punches that are in shapes ... which I overlooked it twice which is easy to do among all the hearts, flowers, stars, etc.


I'm completely impressed w/ the trick on cutting the inner corners - I skipped that part and opted for easy! :)


Here's a pic of my finished STD's:

Oh - and for the paper - I found that printing on card stock worked best for my printer. I tried a few on heavy bristol and on fine art paper, too. The bristol made them too bulky (we had 3 actual "passes" in each STD) and the ink tended to bleed on the art paper. That's just what worked for me - which I was happy with because it was cheaper! :)


Hope it helps! Good luck - and I can't wait to see them!


Ohhh ... and check you paper for Michael's coupons ... they had both a 50% off and a 40% off single items in last week's Sunday edition ... you had to use them separately, but that's not hard to do! :)

Do you reccommend printing your own or taking them to Kinkos? Approximately what is the cost? What about Staples would they be able to do the same thing? I bought a pack of card stock for practice (at Walmart) but it is matte, do they have it a little glossy? Tried one and printed it out at home but it doesn't look so hot. smile105.gif

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
