Yay for Velcro!

I made a tri-panel card with a little flap, but the only self-adhesive Velcro dots I had were huge and thick and bulky...unsuitable for mailing. Then, I came across some small, thin ones at Michael's, and all is right in the universe.

Don't you just love the way the stamped panel reads, essentially, "miss you a bunch"? Of course, this is another card destined for Operation Write Home.

In the second picture, you can see the way the Velcro works. The little dots are not nearly as strong as the big dots, so you wouldn't want to use them to hold anything weighty or important together, but for this simple card, just a little attachment is all that's needed.

I find the easiest way to attach these dots is to put the two dots together first, stick one side down on your project, and then fold the project down to adhere the second dot. If you try to put them down separately, they might not line up right.

On a different subject, I'm delivering cards to Jonah tomorrow (Monday), and have updated the list of cards received for him. If you've sent something, it should be listed. Some of the cards don't have return addresses or even postmarks that are legible, so I had to wing it describing them, but you should get the gist. Thank you all for your support of Jonah through this tough time!
