Mine was way too bulky for my liking, so perhaps using thinner paper instead of heavy textured card stock would work better. I also used a nice pen (I am kind of a pen snob....bic pens bother me) but the little holder on the side made for a chunky joining area.....so I would likely do that over again. I would also like to try single triangle papers instead of folding squares (again, adding to the bulkiness)....and what about distressed paper edges? The fun could be endless. And what wouldn't make you smile if you saw a random flower pen on your desk....or bestowed upon the desk of your kiddo's favorite teacher....or just to thank that really cool dental assistant who always makes your kiddo feel at ease during appointments....or just to keep some cute color in your writing area.....cuteness!
Thanks, Seven Sisters! I love this idea, and I am going to run with it!
