<p>Very creative. I'd never think of this, but it's just so brilliant! Good job!</p>
I love it really cool and creative
that looks really cool. I might try this
Oh, this is great! I'm going to make this for my brother and sister-in-law's gift this year!
I Created another card insert with space to attach a message. This also has to be sized down to 75%.
Cute idea. I recommend using a black piece of paper so you don't have that black bar at the end. You could write &quot;Merry Christmas&quot; with a lacquer painting pen.
now if it done well u could even use old tape drive media, then glue it carefully onto yr white paper. using a cheapo magnedit reader. to read the childs info to put on info like . if he did his chores that week. get x amount of xtra game tyme or allowence to spend. this has so many positablities
Very cute. Made me chuckle.
This is really cool!
