Yes, please donate to a local preschool or public school, Sunday school, senior center, etc.

I've got lots of bits and pieces of 12 X 12 from old projects that I'm about to run through my Big Shot. Eldest will need circles, squares, ovals and other shapes for projects for her kindergarten class. Any stripe, triangle or flower I can create will be a bonus. With multiple die sizes and the extended pads I'm hoping I can cut and group shapes to help her out.

Our foyer is beginning to look like a shipping area. Her $260 order of actual supplies versus storage containers hasn't even arrived yet. And, that doesn't include the three piles of materials spread throughout the dining room and basement. . .

I saw an idea for using odd papers on cards that involved using a hexagon punch. In the J store yesterday I found the punch in three sizes from Fiskars. I bought the middle sized one and look forward to giving that a try. I too have plenty of pad paper leftovers.

This is my favorite way to line envies because it's so simple:

Decorative envelope (starts at 10:45)

I may have come to a conclusion that with the cards I make for the male persuasion, I'll line their envies. For the female persuasion, I'll either decorate the exterior envie or make it out of dp.

I dont think the punched edge would make it through the mail, but would be nice on hand delivered one.

I'm still trying to figure out if there's a way that it could be glued down so as not to hamper any mailing machine.

I think you would have to glue it and that does not look like fun. Maybe if you covered the edge in red liner tape before you punch? Then don't peel the liner till you are ready to seal the envie.

I was thinking Zyron, but even that could be a bit tedious. Jury's still out on this one.

I think the red tape might be eisier to punch through but with any of these solutions there is the risk of gumming up the punches. There is an envelope glue out in the world that dries and has to be moistened to stick. If you find some of that and apply it to your edge and let it dry first, then punch. It just might work.
