I manage to get my friends to come over one Friday night and have a ‘cutting party’. I printed out 125 sheets of SRA3 size paper and on each sheet there was 7 ‘fans’ to cut out. It did not help that there was printing on the front and the back and most of it did not line up together. So what happens is when they finish cutting the fan all nicely on the front they turn it around only to find that there are still white bits visible on the other side. Oops! Sorry guys, I tell you I couldn’t align it due to the movement of the machine when it’s overprinted. It’s true!😛
Some photos from the night from Judie’s camera.
This is how the booklet first starts out and it will be used for the church ceremony. The DIY for it is coming soon (well as soon as I can get the photos from MOH). By the way that is a mouse not a koala as fervently stated by Kane.
All the diligent
slaves, I mean friends.
Can you see all the wastage? Paper, paper everywhere!
Surprisingly the men helped with the cutting but this unique service was not without it’s cons. Alot of moaning and groaning for the torture to end was heard throughout the night. More notable quotes are as below:
” I am so good at this, fast, accurate and efficient” says Bron
“I love this party! I especially love the sound the scissor makes when it cuts in a straight line” said Jason as he proceeds to mimic the sound and thus annoying everyone else
“Oh yes, Jason your right! I love the sound the scissor makes when I cut it diagonally” enthuses Kane
“My thumb! My thumb! I think I sprained it, who is going to pay for the medical fees???” wails Kane as he tries to flex his injured digit
“Audrey, you MUST invite me again if we have another cutting party. I have never had so much fun in my life” says Jason
“Yes, Audrey you MUST invite me too! I can’t wait for another party like this” says Kane as he rolls his eyes.
On and on it went throughout the night and the morning (we started at 11.30pm and finished around 2am). You can imagine I was going cross eyed with the lack of sleep and constant whining from the big babies. Oh, but their help was wonderful! I cannot imagine doing this on my own and the time it would have taken.
Many thanks to the peeps who took the time from their busy schedules to come over and help me and Bron
What would I do without you!
