I wonder how many of you saw this die and thought nothing about it. Let me tell you that I found it to be a great investment!! I purchased it at Ben Franklin the beginning of the year with a 40% coupon and have used it several times - pretty much just to showcase a card.
I recommend cutting the die with chipboard, mainly black chipboard. Folded out, it looks like this and can be laid flat (hint: think mailing!!!)
I used it to showcase this card. However, adding a mini calendar right there between the bamboo leaves and wa-la!!! It makes a great year long gift . . . or maybe used to hold cards up so I can take a picture for the blog!! :o)
