Who knowS, i have seen that there is a slinky on MN, i have not been in a chat with her though... she is probably as lovely as me picking a name like that ...

Hi - I've used and baker ross. All but Mad About Cards cards are def. better quality than Baker Ross. Buy the plain card then just cut to fit rather than the expensive pre-cut aperture stuff, and I get (ssshhh) Asda Value envelopes as they're dirt cheap but just the right size.

Slink Mon 21-Feb-05 17:45:30

Yep already went to asda good to know i am not the only one. I want to make little bags any one got a tenplate?? no worries if not make just try my hand at it anyway.

AuntyQuated Mon 21-Feb-05 19:04:47

do you want bags that actually hold something or something to stick on in the shape of a bag?
i have the latter somewhere i thunk but you will need to CAT me then i can email it to you

Slink Wed 23-Feb-05 10:58:30

AQ I wanted to make a bag just to put an invite in for my dd's party, and also for invites to a hen night?? i'll try and cat you later

Dingle Wed 23-Feb-05 12:18:02

HOW CHEAP are those envelopes in ASDA please? What size are they too? Don't go there very often, do most of our shoping in Tesco's because it's nearby dd's SN nursery and SO much easier without kiddies in tow!
I tend to make my own cards, mainly A5, but use Craft Creations for most over things! I must put another order in as I need to re-new my subscription with them, any excuse to get more goodies!

Hey there,

I use this site - but I'm based in Dublin. They deliver to the UK though for euro 2.50 as well and are much cheaper than most UK sites. They have a good boy's card kit - will post on the other thread re. boys kits.
