  1. Oh! I thought maybe it was for an end of summer party. LOL However, a birthday party for the twins is an even better idea. How much fun would these be to give each adult as they walk into the pavilion beer tent out back and see who invites the little boy or girl to come out and play first! Great idea Lindsay. Thanks!


  2. Very cute


  3. Hate to bother you, but I have a question…. Can’t get the envelope glue to work… Add more glue , it is better or it looks better but will have to use more than two coats even applied heavily. Trying to make cards for the church sale in Sept.


    • are you using the Elmers White glue and vinegar recipe? Make sure it is regular and not washable.


      • Yes, that’s the one…can’t figure what I am doing wrong. Yes I used old fashioned Elmer’s with white vinegar. And a discovery for you: the Wendy’s knives make Great Bone folders!!! Just smooth the sharp edge a little with a emery board and you are good to go….just go get a small frosty ( .99 ) and a handful of knives.
