Hi, Thanks to everyone for their replies to my previous question (I seem to have soooo many!) I have made lots of items to go on cards, but my husband thinks they are all to thick and heavy to go in the post. Any thoughts? Thanks, Juliex

Hi Julie,

I made my own card boxes for all my fimo cards.
They are not too heavy, and with bubble wrap and padded envelopes, they arrived in perfect condition.

Hi Lynne,
Does that mean you have to let people know the cost of postage will therfore increase. I have found on one website boxes which can be made for this purpose, but cost a fortune. Where do you get your supplies for boxes from? Thanks Juliex

Julie I made my own boxes, it was a pain in the butt, but they made a special card that wee bit more special.

I added 50p extra onto the cost of the card to cover the box.

This is along the same lines. When I made a card with a fimo monster's head on for a friends little boy it was a bit top heavy when stood up. I pinched this tip from a handmade card my sister received with a similar top heavy topper, in that the back side of the card was cut at an angle at the bottom to make the card stand slightly angled backwards (iykwim). I cut it about 0.5cm up from bottom of outside edge to bottom of card at the fold and it stands up much better.

Sorry if this tip has already been mentioned.

Suzanne
