Instructions:
Cut a piece of designer series paper 3″ x 6″, you can also make them bigger, if so cut the card stock 4″ x 8″. Score at 3″ or 4″ for larger and then make a mark on both short sides at the 1/2 way mark. Then take a ruler and a stylus and line it up at the mark you made and the edge of the score line and score a diagonal line. Repeat this for the other side, forming a triangle. Next repeat for the opposite side and fold all lines.

Funny

So here is a few funnies to make you laugh.

if you don’t know we have different names of our card stock (Stampin’ Up!) and inks that have names like old olive chocolate chip, etc. So the other day my husband came home and sat at my craft table opposite me and we where talking. Now remember he is a cook at Friendlys ice cream. So any way we where at the table and he was on the side where the card stock was and I asked him to hand me a piece of pumpkin pie. He gave me the weirdest look and then I said not real pumpkin pie, the paper behind you. It was so funny to see his expression.

 

One more funny not related to Stampin’ Up! But yesterday was my birthday and my hubby came home with a card and a plant for me. Well the card was so funny I have to tell you. The card had a beagle on the front dressed up like a nun and it said “If anyone asks you how old you are today, tell them it’s “Nun” ya business”. I laughed so hard.

Hope you liked my littlefunnies
