    1. Thanks, I made several of those, as I'm always behind sending out little RAKS (random acts of kindness) to my stamping pals. I thought that'd be a nice "oops, I'm sorry" to see when they open the package.

    1. It was not as hard as I thought it would be, I did make a square outline to help align the first row of shapes and then just went one piece at a time.
