Last Thursday, my meeting with my thesis adviser did not push through, and that meant I can stay in school late. I took advantage again and went ahead with cutting the first pages I have printed.
I cut and I cut and I cut like I've never cut before! Hahaha! I thought it was just gonna be easy (just like when I cut the red papers), but it really wasn't. I had to cut each page five times (four times to remove border), so that's 70 x 5 for you! Plus, this one really has to be straight and perfect and everything. Many points during pushing down the guillotine cutter that I've thought of alternative ways to cut - scissors or a simple cutter and a healing mat. But a guillotine cutter would give the best results. And with the help of some teacher friends working beside me and chatting me up, I managed to finish it!!!! After two hours! That's victory right there, people.
After that, look what happened again:
|I didn't really mind the glittery gold stain on my fingers,|
I was worried about the papers losing all the shimmery effect!
That night, while I still had the energy to, I chomped the corners. This I did while sitting down and watching TV, so this wasn't really a task at all.
Day 8 (12/2/2011)
My cousin has finally gotten the extra lace we needed and the red stickers for the front. She did the sticking, thank God! I don't really know if I have the persistence to do that! She (I mean, we!) didn't finish it yet - but she has to come over to our house today to get it done. Hahaha, bossy me.
|She has finished a pack of red stickers. Each pack has more than 500 beads! |
And it didn't help that the stickers didn't stick so much.
We had to put on glue first, then stick it.
So I guess I owe her some "hands spa" after this. Hehe!
|After and before, hehe!|
Please tell me the red stickers make a nice difference
Or else I'm gonna start punching random people on the streets.
EDIT: I forgot to add that this was also the day when I glued the primary page on the card, just like so:
There! Can I make the invites in 10 days?? I think so! Haha, that's the challenge! Here's the plan:
Day 9 (today): printing the remaining pages (done!), finish adhering the red thingy
Day 10: cut the pages in the office
Oh wait, there's still the matter of the monogram, and I don't think that can fit on Day 10... Oh, no... Simula palang ng challenge, talo na! Haha!
Oh well, let this therefore be How to Make Wedding Invites in 11 days!! :D 'til later!
