Can I have a piece of paper?

Here's another little project I made for the holidays... Their altered memo cubes. This first set were covered in ...

Card Stock... Sahara Sand, Blue Bayou, Very Vanilla & Cosmo Cricket DS paper.
Stamps... Baroque Motifs
Ink.. True Thyme, Really Rust & Blue Bayou
Accessories... A little bling bling jewel dots, Kraft taffeta ribbon & blue double stitched ribbon..

This 2nd set utilized..
Card Stock... Real Red, True Thyme, Very Vanilla & Dasher DS paper..

Stamps.. Snowflake Serenade
Ink.. True Thyme, Real Red
Accessories... Icicle stickles, Red grosgrain ribbon

So is anyone wondering where I get such awesome memo cubes? The best place to purchase these for the most economical price is from a printing store.. Yep, a printing store. They will charge you based on the number of cuts they have to make. Therefore the larger the cube the cheaper it will be... Therefore using an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper.. If they cut it in 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (therefore making 1 cut) would be cheaper than if you went with a 2.06" x 2" (therefore making 4 cuts)... Also, using an entire ream of paper (500 sheets) is cheaper than if you say only wanted 200 sheets. I had the paper cut into 6 equal portions therefore it was 3 cuts. I believe it cost me about $18 for 12 cubes which comes out to be approximately $1.50 a cube.

A brief update on my FIL.... Still a very sick guy.. Please keep him in your prayers..

Happy Stamping :)
