Board by We R Memory Keepers. Ooooh, I love it! I'm confessing that a problem I have is to just jump right in and try to use a tool before I've read the directions with understanding. Well . . . it was only one line that I missed when skimming over the directions; however, it was an important one. So I only messed up two times before my friend Sharon stepped in to see why I was having difficulty. In the blink of an eye, she quickly spotted what I was doing wrong and set me on the road to successfully punching out envelopes. It was so fun that I couldn't stop! Really!
To start with, I used some 12x12 scrapbook paper that I had purchased on sale for $.10 a sheet. Next time I'll delve into some of my special papers. I used the scraps from the 12x12 sheets to make the matching cards. Here's a link to a video tutorial (that I found after the fact): http://store.scrapbook.com/wr-71277-0.html And for a bit of inspiration, here are a few sets that I've made:
A variety set of 6 would make a great little gift and you could make and embellish a little box to hold them. To make boxes I use Aleene's Box Maker, another great little tool. Wishing you lots of fun with your paper arts and may God bless you,
