Great Way to Feature and Use Your DSP!


This week I'm sharing the latest birthday cards I'm sending to employees of the company I work for.

Are you one of those folks who has a hard time cutting in to your DSP? I actually know people who won't buy DSP because they think it's a waste of paper to only be able to see one side. Some papers are tougher to dissect than others.

Today's project is a perfect way to spotlight BOTH sides of your DSP in a creative fold called the curtain fold.

I mentioned in my Tuesday post that my monthly employee birthday cards are a great way to use my vintage products. I loved this paper stack from the last catalog; it was HUGE! That's a good thing, but I also had quite a bit of paper and other accessories left at the end of the catalog year. It was so darn festive, I had to use it for employee cards. In the process of making these cards, I actually emptied a roll of Washi tape - I love it when that happens!

This fold is a perfect way to showcase the patterns on both sides of your DSP. You can get 4 cards from a 12 x 12 sheet of DSP. I followed a tutorial by Dawn Griffith and altered it a bit to make it more duplicatable - that word is a bit of a mouthful! I ran a stripe of Washi tape on the inside piece of the card to jazz it up a bit, to tie the inside to the outside and to use up the never ending roll of Washi tape! SU! certainly is generous in the quanity of tape they give us.

That reminds me of a story. A year or two ago, Cheryl Ann, one of the Pals, was on a mission to use her Washi tape. She posted projects for WEEKS using Washi tape in more ways than I ever thought possible. The Pals group has an extremely active Facebook group and although we're scattered throughout the country, many of the Pals have become good friends. Anyway, Cheryl Ann had us all on pins and needles waiting for her next project. The accompanying posts were just hysterical. You had to be there, but Cheryl Ann was a woman on a Washi tape mission!! She certainly brightened my days with her humor and creativity

Ana-hoo, give this fold a try. It's easy, it's fun and it looks much more complicated than it is. You'll end up with a project that is total eye candy!

If you'd like to join our amazing group of Pals, get in touch with me. I'd love to answer your questions and have you on my team. I'll be honest, 97% of SU! demos are hobby demonstrators, joining for the discount, staying for the friendships and the fun. Click here for more information or give me a shout.

Hope your day is a good one!
