  • What do you do.......when

    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 - 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!!!

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

                You Fab People

                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.

                      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?
