    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.
