Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so glad people figure these things out. I was disappointed to see that a gift card didn't fit. Thanks to you I can get some of these ready.

Hi patty,
Thanks so much for sharing, the only thing I'm sorry about is to have missed your post a year and a half ago.
That's a super clever idea, Iremember being so disappointed when I bought it and realised that it was to small. But now you just changed my life, I was so happy yesterday when I saw it I HAD to do something with it.

thanks so much again

I'm still loving this technique. TFS


I just bought this die and the lines that are intended to be "fold" marks on the sides acutally cut thru the paper. Thus, I can't use it for its intended use. So disappointed!


Luv the giveaway! You rock!

Carol Watson

Thank you for the time and energy you put into your blog....I love it.


I have the same problem as jorie - the lines that are intended to be "fold" marks on the sides actually cut thru the paper. What are we doing wrong?
