I don't have any Stick On's to show you!!!

I love being the "Odd Ball"--- We'll finish off what turned into Stick - On week with something different--- Expressions Build A Book Letters...

Particularly a little tip on cutting out the letter middles.

Jan of Remember When Creations contacted me just after the New Year asking a GREAT question:

"What is your preferred or recommended way of trimming the insides of letters? "

Now - before you go all silly on me - yes, Jan knows how to weild a mighty x acto knife - she was wondering about DIFFERENT techniques I use when teaching and demo-ing with these awesome word books.

So here I have the letter D - I used my "special mix" of Tacky glue and water to adhere the paper to the front side of the D - then I flipped it over so I could work from behind.. The following picture tutorial should say it all!

So if you don't want to trim out the paper with an x acto- just fold over the edges for a clean gift wrapped finish, - GRIN!
