Hi all cardmakers. I'm just checking my cards now before sealing them for my fair & would like to know "What you do with the envelopes that don't stick very well ". What my mum & I are doing is putting a bit of double sided tape up each side, it's a bit time consuming & will work out expensive, but what else can you do. Don't want to buy new envelopes at the moment as this is my first fair & must watch the pennies. Any advice will be welcome. cheers Linda.

I have the stick and lick stuff (I think thats what its called!) and its around 2 from www.lakeland.co.uk (http://www.lakeland.co.uk) - be warned, they have a sale on at the moment hehehe!!

I have a tube of the stuff as I've made my own envelopes in the past and once you get the hang of how to use it, you'll be slapping it on everything!!!:D

What about putting a couple of those little clear 'parcel stickers' in with each one. That wouldn't work out too expensive. Sue xx:D

You fab people, A HUGE thanks to you all. After reading about the stick & lick stuff I went into town today & bought 2 bottles of it, so now hopefully I can get busy putting that on my not so sticky envelopes. You are soooooooooo clever getting me out of trouble. Thanks again. Linda.........
I love you all.:mf::mf::mf::mf::mf::mf::mf:

I was devastated by Lakeland stopping crafts. Because I have a catalogue they wrote to tell me and I always have some of their butterfly stickers, so I thought I would order some as they were in the sale and stock up. Disaster, order returned as no stock!!!! What will I do for self adhesive coloured butterflies now. They were so useful.

Oh no, I really liked the lakeland craft stuff.

Does anyone know why they have decided to stop doing it?
