2016 Expo ~ It's Cheaper Than Therapy

This Fold-a-Long Thank You card
was present by
Its Cheaper Than Therapy
(~what a cool name!~)
during the Make n Take sessions 
at the 2016 Stamp and Scrapbook Expo 
in Duluth, Ga.
For those who have been following along - 
are you not yet amazed at ALL the projects
that we were given by these great vendors? 



We added the precut Thank You, which I elected to chalk
 to the pre-folded card and then 
carefully cut the letters along the fold line so they matched up
perfectly, without cutting the inside of the card. 
Think about any Gatefold card.... you could use this
same technique of cutting your die to match up!


The inside pieces are layered with foam dots and the banner 
tags are tucked in between the layers.  
The base die has small cut tabs 
at the top and bottom to slide the framed piece into.

Then add a ribbon to create a closure,
or belly band,
 making sure it's loose enough to slide off and on. 

This vendor also gave us a very nice surprise...
a Christmas embossing folder in our package! 

Now that's a cute project AND
a nice surprise! 

Thank you for stopping by ~ Pam
