Wednesday I was at school to see Sam in the semi finals of Battle of the Books. First three classes did a musical presention. Sams class did a song on the xylophones and drums. It was quit good. In her battle though they lost 6-4. They gave it their best try. They are more experienced for next year. Grant is looking forward to being in it next year.
I made a card like this a couple weeks ago and liked it so much I decided to make a gift set. I made the box with a peek hole to see the cards. Four card with matching envelopes. I had a problem with the envelopes. I didn't have my measurements right and the flap was too short to overlap, and you wouldn't be able to seal it. Noticed when I cut the first one out, forgot for the second, then changed the measurement on one sketch. But when I was following the sketch on how to cut it out of the 12x12 sheet I'd forgotten to change that measurement. So now I have three envelopes wrong, and decided I only have one left so no use replacements and cut out the fourth. Then I just added a small strip so the flap had something to seal to. Not bad for a first attempt.
Happy crafting ;o)
